Ondo state Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi has described the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu as ‘temporary incapacitated’ and urged the governor to hand over to him.
Akeredolu who is in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 has insisted that he wouldn’t handover.
He said he would still be treating and attending to the state’s duties.
Ajayi, who gave his boss 21 days ultimatum, stated that Akeredolu’s COVID-19 status, which returned positive was an indication that he is incapacitated.
According to the deputy governor who spoke through his Media Adviser, Allen Sowore emphasized that “it should be noted, that Mr Governor is at liberty to handover or not within 21 days after which the constitution becomes operational.
“Ostensibly, the refusal and failure of Mr Governor to handover the running of government to his deputy while he is temporarily incapacitated in self-isolation underscore his absolute disregard for our nation’s supreme document, 1999 Constitution (as amended) as well as the tenets of rule of law. The Governor’s position is a spite on the Ondo State people and a direct assault on the provisions of the constitution which he swore to uphold.”
