Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo state, has terminated the appointments of the aides attached to Agboola Ajayi, his deputy.
Akeredolu and Ajayi have been having several issues and battle which finally led to the resignation of the deputy governor from the All Progressives Congress.
However, On Tuesday the governor took the decision after Mr Ajayi defected to the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, where he has indicated interest to run against the governor in October.
The affected aides are Olomu Bayo, special assistant, special duties; Olawale Mukaila, special assistant, photography, Babatope Okeowo, deputy chief press secretary; Samuel Ogunmusi, personal assistant, (deputy governor), Omotunmise Tokunbo, special assistant to the wife of the deputy governor; and Erifeyiwa Akinnugba, photography, wife of the deputy governor.
Segun Ajiboye, chief press secretary to the governor, who signed the statement, asked the affected aides to submit all government’s property with their possession to the chief of staff to the governor.
Mr Okeowo, the spokesperson to Mr Ajayi said:
“He has fired all of us but the deputy governor reappointed all of us immediately. Nothing lost”.
