The power play in Ondo State is heating up as the elections gets around the corner.
The battle between Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his deputy, Ajayi is getting to another level with the deputy governor set to defect to the PDP with the hope of getting a ticket to contest in the October governorship election in Ondo State.
The governor on sensing that his deputy is packing his things from the government house ordered his commissioner of police to detain the deputy governor and stop his men from packing his belongings. Watch video here.
The video itself is a disgrace and shameful to the nation.
The report governor had be detained for several house and could be seen arguing with the commissioner of police and questioning why the Governor should use the police go embarrass him this way. Watch video here.
A media aide to the deputy governor, Mr Allen Sowore, confirmed Saturday’s incident to our correspondent.
He said, “We could not leave the Government House for several hours yesterday as they refused the deputy governor to pack his personal belongings.
“At a time, the deputy governor had to ask the position of the Commissioner of Police in this matter because the way he acted was just too low of him as a public officer.”
There had been a cold war between Ajayi and Akeredolu, which became visible shortly after 2019 general election when the APC lost the presidential election in the state.
The relationship broke down completely after the deputy governor began boycotting all activities of government including that of the party in the state.
Ajayi has concluded plans to leave the APC to PDP where he could possibly emerge their candidate for the governorship election slated for October.
