GOVERNOR AKEREDOLU IS FRUSTRATING MY CAMPAIGN MOVE – DEPUTY GOVERNOR, AGBOOLA AJAYI
Ondo State Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi, has accused the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, of frustrating his campaign move.
The Zenith Labour Party Gubernatorial candidate claimed Akeredolu refused to approve the venue to kick off his campaign in Akure.
The Deputy Governor alleged that the venue for the political campaign was not approved despite his party's readiness to pay the amount charged.
He said the action of the agency which would approve the venue for the political campaign is on the order of Governor Akeredolu.
In a statement signed by Agboola's Special Adviser on Media, Mr Allen Sowore, Ajayi described Governor Akeredolu's action as undemocratic and condemnable.
He said, “Let be it known that the Zenith Labour Party applied for the usage of the M.K.O Abiola Democracy Park, Akure to flag off its campaign rally. After the successful completion of all due process, the agency responsible, acting on the instruction of Ondo State governor deliberately hiked the price from the original N5million, which the venue was given out to the PDP for its own rally on Saturday, 12th September, 2020.
“Even at that, the ZLP was ready to pay the N11 million charged but the official in charge disappeared. It then became clear that Governor Akeredolu was ready to frustrate the ZLP. This is a condemnable act.”
