Why Akeredolu Against Plot To Impeach Deputy

Hon Agboola Ajayi, Ondo State Deputy Gov.

It was scooped that relationship between Akeredolu and his deputy has broken down over what an aide to the Governor described “as broken down of excessive trust.”

According to feelers from Ondo State, some politicians approached the Governor to either ask Agboola to resign or face impeachment, but the Governor declined and asked the man be left alone.

The deputy has not been seen recently in many public functions.

However, some sources close to the office of the Deputy Governor were of the opinion that the Governor would fail in any impeachment plot because the deputy picked majority of the House of Assembly members.

Some political allies of the Deputy Governor said the Deputy has been loyal to Akeredolu, but politicians who wanted politcal favours painted lies to the Governor through the First Lady.

It was larnt that a top government official said the Deputy betrayed the trust Akeredolu have in him by attempting to put political structures in place ahead of this year’s governorship election.

The top official said Akeredolu gave free hands for his Deputy to nominate political appointees from Ondo South and allowed him to make nominations during the party primaries ahead of 2019 general elections.

According to him: “Akeredolu trusted the Deputy to handle politcal matters and that was why he listened to him to support some candidates to contest under the Action Alliance.

“But the Deputy went to Abuja and told them the Governor was not listening to advice. That was what led to Akeredolu’s suspension.

“We have told the Governor to begin impeachment processes, but he said we shoild allow posterity judge his Deputy.”
