Barring any last minute change, the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Hon. Agboola Ajayi will in a matter of days move from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC to his erstwhile party, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The speculation that the Deputy Governor has been planning to contest against his boss, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu at the October 10, 2020, governorship polls came to fruition following secret meetings held over the weekend with some party leaders within both the APC and the PDP.
DAILY POST also gathered that some APC stalwarts in the State will be making the move with the deputy governor.
Notable among the stalwarts is Prince Sola Amodeni, a former cabinet member who was sacked by Akeredolu in 2019, alongside two others.
At one of the meetings held separately at one of the residence of a party chieftain in Ijapo Estate, Akure, Ondo State capital, Ajayi was said to have disclosed to the party leaders of his planned move to the PDP as he sought their support ahead of the move.
