ONDO 2020: Ajayi salutes lawmakers for avoiding encouragement and intimidation: Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State and his deputy governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi, on Monday performed a tango for the removal of the latter’s security details by the police.
This occurs when the impeachment meeting scheduled for the VIP lodge of the government house was not held, as only nine of the 19 invited members of the assembly showed up.

“The security details attached to Ajayi and his office were removed by order of the state Police Commissioner last week on Wednesday.
But Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in a quick response from his chief press secretary, According to Ajiboye, titled “Another Lie of a Sink,” said that the lieutenant governor was economic with the truth.
Ajiboye in a statement said that “we deliberately allowed additional lies regarding Agboola Ajayi’s” restored security, to fly. Let’s find out who this character is.
“He requested six police officers, instead of the eight legal ones, for a lieutenant governor on June 10 and the IGP approved through Letter No: CB0900 / DOPS / FHQ / ABJ / VOL / 60/263 dated the same June 10, 2020.
“It shows that nothing of his security was withdrawn since he made the innocent public believe. He requested all six, obtained approval and sent those whom he does not” trust “to the Security structure of the Government House, and then went ahead to raise the alarm.
“He disconnected his ADC, Dele, another Sergeant Kasali on his own and cried disgustingly. A man who actually sinks. All security attached to your official residence has remained intact, none were removed or withdrawn.
“The questions are: When did you apply? When did the alarm go up? Was it the approval of your letter that was sent or an order to restore your supposedly withdrawn security?
Meanwhile, in response to the failed impeachment meeting scheduled for the government house on Sunday, Ajayi’s media adviser Allen Sowore said that “the government’s plan to use 19 of the 23 APC members of the Chamber of the State Assembly to accuse Lieutenant Governor Agboola Ajayi suffered a devastating setback due to the resolution of the majority of the Honorable Members of the Chamber of the State Assembly to defend the sanctity of the sacred chamber.
Sowore said, “The meeting scheduled for 9:00 pm on Sunday, June 28, 2020 at Government House Ground did not deliver the desired results as only nine members showed interest in attending.
“The Lieutenant Governor commends the integrity and courage shown by the majority of the honorable Members for avoiding all the pleas, incentives and intimidations that come from the Chief Executive.
“The Lieutenant Governor’s office is fully aware of the latest plan to move the next recall parcels meeting to Heritage Hotel, Ijapo by 11:00 pm on Monday, June 29, 2020.
“Appropriately, we call upon security officers and, most importantly, the good people of Ondo State to be vigilant and watchful of these latest surreptitious movements of the Governor to illegally remove the Lieutenant Governor at all costs for the simple fact to exercise your constitutional right to freedom of association: by moving from the Congress of All Progressives (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Meanwhile, the leadership of the APC APC State Unity Forum has pledged to continue the court case against the State Adeco led by Ade Adetimehin.
A member of the Forum’s legal team told reporters in Akure that “there has been no contrary directive from the deputy leader of the Senate, Ajayi Borofice to that effect.”
“Whether or not the president directs it is not our business. What was I doing until now? As long as our leader, the deputy leader of the Senate, Borofice has not said anything to the contrary, we are moving forward.
“All we know is that we will continue our case against Akeredolu and his Adetimehin led State Exco to a logical conclusion. If the villa thinks they can dictate us here, they are joking. We will not withdraw our case in court.
The member noted that “it seems that the town has capitulated to the governors and if that is what they want by withdrawing all the cases, it is very unfortunate.”
