There are indications that Ondo State Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi may be pressured to tender his resignation letter this week.
Ajayi, the candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), lost his bid to govern the state after he emerged a distant third in the October 10 governorship election.
He resigned from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in June, joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but failed to clinch the party’s ticket before moving to the ZLP.
The pressure on Ajayi to resign, according to some of his allies in the House of Assembly and ZLP, is to prevent what they termed unnecessary impeachment brouhaha.
Some of the sources said Ajayi might turn in his letter of resignation to the Speaker of the Assembly before the end of this week.
It was gathered that top notch friends of Ajayi, including a northern governor, was reached to advise him accordingly to resign.
A top Ondo government official confirmed to our reporter that aggressive steps will be taken to ensure Ajayi is impeached if he fails to tender his resignation letter.
The official said Ajayi’s allies in the Assembly were already caving in to sign the impeachment notice.
According to an ally of Ajayi, “from all we have seen, the game has ended and there is no way anyone can continue the fight; we have reached the end of the road as far as this governorship issue is concerned.
