Ondo 2020: Agboola dismisses alleged ZLP/PDP alliance, says Akeredolu’s media team instigated story

By Maria Ifafesobi
Ondo State Deputy Governor and the Zenith Labour Party’s (ZLP) governorship candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in the state, Agboola Ajayi has dismissed reports making rounds that he had allegedly collapsed his structure and pledged allegiance to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Eyitayo Jegede.
In a statement released by the deputy governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Babatope Okeowo, on Wednesday dismissed the report saying it was part of the plans devised by the governor’s media team in order to destabilize the deputy governor’s supporters.
The statement reads, “The attention of the Deputy Governor and candidate of Zenith Labour Party(ZLP), Hon Agboola Ajayi has been drawn into a publication of that alleged alliance with the candidate of People Democratic Party(PDP), Mr. Eyitayo Jegede SAN.
“This publication like the previous one from the same author is not only fake but planted by the information machinery of the outgoing governor of Ondo State, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN to discourage the teeming supporters of the Deputy Governor.
“That said publication was coming barely 24 hours after the State Government prevented the Deputy Governor the use of government facility for the launch of his campaign showed their sinister motives.
“Let it be known to the members of the public that there is no romance between the candidate of ZLP and that of PDP after the governorship primary that produced Eyitayo Jegede as the candidate of PDP. There was no offer and rejection of running mate from the PDP leadership or Jegede to Ajayi as insinuated by the fake publication.
“The said publication has failed to prove any nexus between the two candidates and tried unsuccessfully also to impugn the character of the Deputy Governor.
“We say emphatically that the Deputy Governor is winning the forthcoming governorship election slated for October 10, and he is willing to welcome candidates or other political parties who may wish to support his aspiration to rescue the state from the misrule of Akeredolu’s government”.
