The Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ese-Odo Local Government Area (LGA) of Ondo State, Samuel Ajayi, has resigned from the party. Ajayi announced his resignation from the office of the APC chairman in the LGA and from the party in a letter dated July 10, 2020.
The Publicity Secretary of the APC in Ondo, Alex Kalejaye, confirmed the resignation on Friday. He explained that the former APC LGA chairman had been suspended from the party last week over allegations of anti-party activities.
The decision of Ajayi to leave the party is presumed to be connected to the defection of the Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Ajayi is said to be related to the deputy governor who also hails from Ese-Odo LGA.
The deputy governor had left the APC for the PDP as a result of reported disagreement with the State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
