There has been a tussle between the Governors of Ondo state. Rotimi Akeredolu, Governor of Ondo state, had on Tuesday terminated the appointments of the aides attached to the deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi.
This follows the defection of Agboola from the ruling all progressives congress (APC) to the peoples democratic party (PDP).
In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Aketedolu, Mr Segun Ajiboye sacking the aides, he gave no reason for their termination.
Few hours after Ajiboye’s statement of sack, one of the affected aides, Mr Babatope Okeowo, released a statement of reappointment as the deputy governor’s personal aides.
Okeowo said the deputy governor had approved the appointment of Mr Allen Sowore as Media Adviser with immediate effect. Okeowo, who is the Chief Press Secretary to the deputy governor, said in the meantime, all of them had been reappointed as Ajayi’s personal aides.
He advised all affected aides to return all government properties in their possession to the appropriate quarters within 24 hours. He said the deputy governor would speak on all contending issues at the appropriate time.
