The Ondo state government has labelled the alleged plot to impeach the embattled Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi and Speaker of the State House of Assembly as pedestrian and lies
Reacting to the allegation, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation Donald Ojogo said ” We are not surprised that they are coming out in this manner. This issues raised are not just pedestrian; they are tissues of lies and misadventures propaganda. They obviously are hunting the man who had hyped himself out of relevance.
“It is, perhaps, illogical that the Governor with ‘minority’ in the Assembly will be inviting the Deputy Governor’s ‘majority’ for what they feel appropriate for their imaginary thoughts.
Ojogo said “Mr Governor has decided to remain calm and unmoved amid all these lies. There are periods you fight your battles; at other times, you require silence and allow the lies of your adversaries to fight your battles on your behalf”,
Ondo PDP youths wants level playing ground
