I made a wrong choice of deputy, says Akeredolu


Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, on Saturday, has said that he regretted making a wrong choice in his embattled deputy, Agboola Ajayi, who defected from the All Progressives Congress to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recently.

Akeredolu, who stated this in Igbekebo, the headquarters of Ese-Odo local government area during his “meet the delegates” tour ahead of the next Monday primary election of the APC, said he adopted Ajayi as his deputy despite criticism from various quarters.

The governor who said he believed then that he had made a good choice in Ajayi, who is his cousin, noted that he was greatly let down by his deputy who made him realised he had made a wrong choice.
