Re-elected Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has asked his deputy, Agboola Ajayi to as a matter of honour resign from office.
Both men fell out months before Ajayi indicated interest to contest the just concluded state governorship election.
Ajayi initially defected from the All Progressive Congress, APC to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP before picking the ticket of the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP.
He came third in the election behind Akeredolu and the PDP candidate, Eyitayo Jegede.
During his visit to President General Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday, he called on Ajayi to resign if he still has any honour in him.
He said, “God has given us victory, who am I to harbour enmity against anybody? it is not necessary. So, if he (Ajayi) comes back, if he has honour anyway, he should resign and leave as Deputy Governor if he has honour.
“But if he decides not to, if opportunities are there, I am sure the party will take a decision on him because he is no longer in our party, he has gone to another party.
“He has been in three parties within a month, wonderful man. From APC to PDP, from PDP to ZLP, he is a wonderful man.”
