As the attempts to impeach Ondo state deputy governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi, continued to generate controversy , special adviser on political affairs to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Hon. Victor Olabimtan, has said the directive was from the All Progressives Congress at the national level.
Speaking on a current affairs program, Politics Today, monitored On Channelstv on Monday evening, Olabimtan maintains that the party at the state level wrote to the national secretariat of the Party about the development after the exit of the Deputy Governor.
But the embattled deputy speaker, Hon Iroju Ogundeji, countered him that he was not aware about any meeting convened with the state legislators to remove the Deputy Governor.
The duo argue about the constitutionality and morality of Hon Agboola remaining in office after defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party.
To the deputy speaker, the House of Assembly was not pleased with the dilapidated structure which has become an eyesore that a snake found its way into the chamber two years ago.
He said Governor Akeredolu has turned a blind eye to the plight of the state lawmakers.
On the performance of the governor and why five of his people are contesting to oust him, Olabimtan says Akeredolu has delivered on his mandate, adding that his people were merely exercising their democratic rights.
“ In 2016, about seven aspirants from his local government contested the primaries with him and in the end he triumphed. Akeredolu has perform and he will emerge victorious come July 20,” he said.
