Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has terminated the appointments of the aides attached to his deputy, Agboola Ajayi.

The governor’s chief press secretary, Segun Ajiboye, announced this in a statement on Tuesday, shortly after the governor sacked Mr Ajayi’s spokesman, Allen Sowore.

The affected aides are Special Assistant, Special Duties, Olomu Bayo; Special Assistant, Photography, Olawale Mukaila; Deputy Chief Press Secretary, Babatope Okeowo; Personal Assistant, (Deputy Governor), Samuel Ogunmusi; Special Assistant to the Wife of the Deputy Governor, Omotunmise Tokunbo; and Special Assistant, Photography to Wife of the Deputy Governor, Erifeyiwa Akinnugba.

Mr Ajiboye, in the statement, directed the affected aides to submit all government’s property in their possession to the chief of staff to the governor.

Akeredolu and his deputy have been at loggerheads which has led to the latter’s departure from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
