PDP invites embattled Ondo dep gov to decamp, but gives conditions

The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi has said he would maintain his position despite his resignation from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ajayi dumped the APC on Sunday in Apoi Ward 2, Ese Odo Local Government Area of the state and joined the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the ward.

While tendering his resignation letter from the APC in Apoi Ward 2, Ajayi said that he left the ruling party did not mean he was leaving his position as the state’s deputy governor.
