Coronavirus: I Give You 21 Days To Handover To Me- Deputy Governor of Ondo State Ajayi Tells Governor Akeredolu.



Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has been urged to hand over the affairs of the state to his deputy, Agboola Ajayi.

Akeredolu is in isolation receiving treatment for coronavirus infection and his deputy, with whom he is having a long-running battle, wants to rule in his stead.

The governor has said he would not hand over to Ajayi.

According to BK NEWS, Ajayi, in his reply to the governor's comment, issued a 21-day ultimatum to Akeredolu to obey the provisions of the constitution as required by his legal profession.

“Ordinarily, one expects Mr Governor to bring to bear on governance his background as a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, (SAN).

"But it is rather surprising and worrisome that the Governor has chosen the part of perversin of justice, by allowing his close aides to go astray in a matter of constitutionality," said Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi.
