Hon. Agboola Ajayi, Ondo state Deputy Governor, is said to be under pressure to resign pressure to resign from office.
This development is coming as Ajayi resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) and defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) where he intends to contest the October governorship elections.
Zonal Publicity Secretary(Southwest)of the PDP, Mr. Ayo Fadaka, urged Hon Ajayi to toe the path of honor and resign from office honorably.
Fadaka, gave the above statement when he granted an interview on a Channels TV.
“There must be level of standard people must keep even in politics.” Fadaka said.
He however wondered if the defection of Ajayi could it be construed to be high crime against the state that would necessitate impeachment.
The PDP zonal spokesman noted the manner some politicians played politics suggested to the world that politicians in Nigeria lacked conscience.
“Impeachment is expected to be initiated if it is considered that person to be impeached has committed high crimes against the system.
But again, with the decamping of Agboola can it be construed to be high crime against the state?
“The constitution says that for every Governor that will contest, he should have a running mate and that’s why there is always a deputy governor to assist the Governor.
The Governor picked Agboola Ajayi, the PDP was not part of whatever they were doing when they decided to run with each other.
” And if they still feel comfortable running with each other, we do not want to have an input into it. Ordinary, it is up to Agboola Ajayi to do what I think is honorable by resigning himself if he feel he could no longer cooperate with the man who placed a level of trust in him to assist him in doing his job. ” Fadaka said.
