The former Ondo State Deputy Governor, Honourable Agboola Ajayi, has reportedly changed his stands on the government vehicles in his possession. Agboola agreed to return the official vehicles two months after leaving the office.
In a statement by Allen Sowore, his media aide, the former deputy Governor, explained that he has two official vehicles against the claim by the Ondo State government that he had four cars in his possession.
He explained that the two vehicles with him are his statutory benefits, noting that one of the vehicles was at a mechanic workshop in Okitipupa while the other was still with the dealer because the state government did not make full payment.
Agboola’s decision is coming on the heels of the 48 hours ultimatum given to him by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu-led administration.
A police source revealed that the police command had informed Ajayi that he risked a simultaneous raid of his houses in Akure, Kiribo, Abuja, Lagos and Okitipupa if he refused to return the vehicles to the government within 48 hours.
Meanwhile, Agboola advised the Ondo State Government to get her priorities right. He added that he had in a farewell message on 24th February 2021 wished Governor Akeredolu and his Deputy, Lucky Ayedatiwa, success in their administration.
You will recall that Governor Akeredolu, through Dr Doyin Odebowale, his Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties and Strategy, threatened to embarrass Ajayi if he failed to return the four officials vehicles in his possession.
