Governor Akeredolu’s former deputy, Hon. Alfred Agboola Ajayi has hinted that he’s now ready to return the vehicles that are still with him after he left office.
In a press release obtained by Basehitz Media this afternoon, the ex-deputy Governor says he desires progress of the State and would return the vehicles than allow the pubic make issues out of it.
He opined that issues facing the State require Government’s full attention and a focus on the vehicles would generate needless distractions from core issues.
“Recall that in my farewell message to the good people of Ondo State, on 24th February, 2021, I wished Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN and his Deputy, Lucky Ayedatiwa success in their administration. I stand by that”, Ajayi’s statement reads.
“As a citizen of the state it is in my interest and in the interest of all of us that this current administration demonstrates good governance, transparent policy making and effective change” he continues.
“Unfortunately members of the inner circle of the Governor have decided to prioritise their time to harass me on a number of issues, most especially with regards to the return of vehicles. I had hoped these petty interactions would have ceased after the recent inauguration.
“To be clear – if the return of these two vehicles will make the administration focus more on the avalanche of pressing needs, challenges and predicaments facing the state most especially insecurity, the absence of governance and unpaid salaries across the entirety the Ondo public sector – then I’m ready to make the sacrifice and return the two vehicles which they so desperately need.
Ajayi added; “I am not the problem of the present administration.
I have MOVED ON”
