Ondo 2020: I’m not cash-strapped, says Deputy Gov

By Osagie Otabor, Akure

Candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) and Ondo Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi, has denied comments by some party chieftains that he is cash- strapped.

Agboola said it was untrue that he could not source fund to launch his governorship campaigns.

Some chieftains of the ZLP, who pleaded anonymity, had said those that pledged to sponsor Agboola’s campaign have not released funds, which was why the party was yet to launch its campaigns.

The chieftains said political activities in the ZLP were in limbo due to lack of proper funding, which was why the party couldn’t erect billboards and place posters across the 18 local governments.

One of them said: “As at now, we are stranded in ZLP. Before he joined the party, he told us that he has N10 billion to finance his election but I doubt if he has spent up to N10million since he defected from PDP to ZLP.

“Go to all local governments, you will hardly see his billboards and posters. Even in his own local government, Ese-Odo, Agboola Ajayi billboards and posters are scanty.

“Our prayer is that he returns to Akure with huge money so that we can kick start our campaigns because this is very disappointing.

“It is disheartening that 30 days to the election, ZLP is yet to appoint Director-General, set up committees and draw up plans for the campaign.”

But Agboola, who spoke through his Media Adviser, Allen Sowore, said the fake report was sponsored by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.

Agboola said the report was aimed at discouraging his huge supporters.
