ONDO 2020: Ajayi’s defection to ZLP tears PDP apart

THE planned defection of the deputy governor of Ondo state Hon Agboola Ajayi to the Zenith Labour Party this week is generating heat within his People Democratic Party. This is aside from the disquiet in the Peoples Democratic Party over the choice of who will be the deputy of the candidate of the party Eyitayo Jegede. Ajayi who defected from the ruling All Progressive Congress to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party over irreconcilable differences with Governor Rotimi Akeredolu. He contested the last governorship primary and came second barely a month after joining the party. Barring any changes, Ajayi will be defecting to the ZLP to realise his governorship ambition. The party according to one of its leaders is facing two crucial issues at the moment and if care is not taken may consume the party. 

 We are seriously appealing to the deputy governor not to dump the party at this crucial time and at the same time, the party’s candidate is battling with leaders of his choice of deputy”. ***NWC may impose Ajayi on Jegede to thwart his defection. Already, leaders of the PDP within and outside the state including governors have been mounting pressure on Ajayi not to dump the party. A reliable source hinted that NWC of the party may likely impose Ajayi as the running mate to Jegede as part of the moves to halt his defection ZLP.
