The incumbent Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi, was last night restricted from leaving the government house.
This may be connected to his planned defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in order to contest the forthcoming governorship election on the platform of the party.
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu is seeking a second term in office and has obtained the APC’s form to indicate that interest.
However, strong indications of Ajayi’s defection to the PDP emerged during the week when his campaign posters surfaced on the various social media platforms.
Also, news of his planned resignation became rife on Friday evening after his return from Abuja where he had held a series of talks and meetings with some key leaders of the PDP.
