Former Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi, has insisted that what he has in his custody as official cars of government are two and not four as claimed by the Governor Rotimi Akeredolu led-government.
Ajayi, made this known in a statement by his media aide, Allen Sowore, yesterday. He maintained that the ex-deputy governor returned all vehicles in his control on 23rd February 2021, the day he completed his tenure excluding the two vehicles, a Land Cruiser and a Hilux Jeep.
He stated that the embattled former deputy governor is entitled to those two vehicles just like other former deputy governors in the state.
According to him, one of the vehicles being demanded was at a mechanic workshop in Okitipupa while the other was still with the dealer because full payment has not been made.
The former Deputy Governor said Governor Akeredolu should be, “prepared not to take any government vehicle at the end of his tenure if he (Agboola) is made to return the two vehicles.
“The former Deputy Governor has joined senior citizens in this state. He should be accorded such respect. On February 23rd when his tenure ended, civil servants came and collected all government vehicles except a Land Cruiser and Hilux jeep which are part of his statutory benefit.
“He is to go home with those two vehicles. He is not holding onto any government vehicles. All other former Deputy Governors in this state are using government vehicles. Nobody should because of politics use indecent language on the former Deputy Governor.
“Let the police invite him. He will explain himself. He is not afraid. One of the other two vehicles had an accident. It is at Okitipupa while the dealer is yet to deliver the second one,” Ajayi added.
For finding them worthy of the noble assignment while promising to discharge their duty with justice and equity.
Other members of the 18-man committee are former acting national chairman Hon. Victor Giadom who will serve as the secretary and Emperor Chris Baywood as member.
