As race for the October 10 governorship election hots up, Ondo State Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi says he has been changing his political platforms in recent time to rescue the people of the state from underdevelopment and untold hardship.
Mr Ajayi stated this in Akure while officially defecting to the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP, few days after resigning from the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP).
The deputy governor who left the ruling APC about sixty days ago and spent 50 days in the PDP, explained that his decision to join the ZLP was to advance his governorship aspiration.
The ZLP governorship candidate noted that the Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s administration had not lived up to the People’s expectations, pointing out that the outrageous tuitions of the state tertiary institutions would be reversed if elected as the governor.
Receiving the deputy governor at a rally attended by hundreds of party faithful, the state Chairman of ZLP, Chief Joseph Akinlaja, expressed optimism that Mr Agboola Ajayi would lead the party to victory against the APC and the PDP.
Some former Commissioners and lawmakers defected to the ZLP with the Deputy Governor.
