Ondo State Deputy Governor, Hon. Agboola Ajayi has debunked the rumour about his ambition to contest the forthcoming election against his principal.
In a statement issued by the deputy Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Babatope Okeowo , the deputy governor said he had no connection with the purported video where a campaign jingle with the People’s Democratic Party’s logo was aired on his behalf.
According to him, those behind the act were bent on creating disharmony within the political space with such blackmailing tactics and enjoined the public to disregard any publication about his ambition to contest.
The statement reads: ” The attention of the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Hon Agboola Alfred Ajayi has been drawn to a purported video where a campaign jingle with Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) logo was aired on his behalf.
“This is to let the general public know that this video which was poorly done did not emanate from the Deputy Governor of Ondo State neither did it have his support.
“Let it be made known that the Deputy Governor is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and has not declared any governorship ambition.
“Recall that a WhatsApp’s group titled ‘Agboola Ajayi 4 Sure 2020’ was created last year by Omobone Tunde to champion the governorship ambition of the Deputy Governor.
“The man in question has denied having anything to do with the WhatsApp’s group.
“The Deputy Governor has also said these characters who see blackmail and propaganda as legitimate tools would paste his governorship posters.
“This is clearly the handiwork of some character who are bent on creating disharmony in the political space of Ondo State.
“Once again, the Deputy Governor did not authorize the purported video or any poster that may emanate from these people”.
