ADEOLA AJAYI, EKITI
The Cold war between Governor Akerdolu and his deputy Continues to generate trends as the Governor vowed not to handover to his deputy Mr Agboola Ajayi, calling him a betrayal.
While the Governor health wise is causing trauma despite positive to Covid-19 in the cabinet, according The governor, who spoke on Friday through the Commissioner for Information in the state, Donald Ojogo, said he would soon be back to his desk and go ahead with the job of governing the state.
Akeredolu added that the idea of handing over power to his deputy should be buried, noting that Ajayi had exhibited traits of a betrayer.
Ojogo said, “Handing over the governance of the state to Agboola is a non-issue and we are not even considering that.
“I know as a matter of fact nobody would want to do that and if we advise the governor it should be on what basis?
“He (deputy governor) has created an unusual scenario upon which he wanted to climb into the next step in his political ambition and we have seen this as a misadventure.
“We cannot toil with what we have built over the years. We cannot risk and attempt to hand over to someone who has exhibited the widest scenario of betrayal.
“So, it is unthinkable and unquestionable. If that is the reason why the deputy governor is sponsoring some write up that the governor must hand over to him, he is joking and it is not going to happen.
“Mr Governor is saying COVID-19 is not a death sentence and he is strong enough to work.”
