Agboola Ajayi, candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in the forthcoming Ondo State governorship election, has debunked reports that he has entered an alliance with Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The clarification was made on behalf of Ajayi, who is the state Deputy Governor, by Babatope Okeowo, his Chief Press Secretary, in an interview in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Thursday.
According to Okeowo, the report linking his principal to such an alliance was the handiwork of political rivals.
“Let it be known to the members of the public that there is no romance between the candidate of ZLP and that of PDP. There was no offer and rejection of running mate from the PDP leadership or Jegede to Ajayi,” the governor’s aide said.
