The Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Hon Agboola Ajayi has revealed that he was propelled by the call to serve.
Hon Agboola, who made this known in Akure, the Ondo state capital on Friday said the call by the people of the state inspired his decision to contest in the forthcoming governorship elections.
According to him, the collective wish and yearnings of the people of the State remain the impetus for the bid to wrestle the governance of the state from a political demagogue.
Agboola said after critically analyzing the terrain, he found the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP as the dependable platform to rescue the state from a lacklustre, nepotistic and clannish leadership.
“Today, I formally join the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), to achieve the noble cause of giving Ondo State a new direction and purposeful leadership.”
However, the Deputy governor called on his supporters, friends and followers to show commitment by mobilizing and campaigning for the ZLP in their various wards across the state.
He was received by the State Chairman of the ZLP, Hon Joseph Akinlaja alongside other leaders drawn from across the State.
Akinlaja said masses oriented, pro-people agenda of the ZLP will be vigorously pursued under the Agboola dispensation as he also welcomed all those joining the party with the Deputy Governor.
