Deputy Ondo governor’s son threatens to sue gov Rotimi Akeredolu

Babajide, the son of Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has threatened to sue the Deputy Governor of the State, Mr Agboola Ajayi, for accusing him of making the sum of 433 million nairas from the N4.3bn stashed in a secret government account in the State. 

Babajide who described the allegations by the Deputy Governor as malicious and an attempt to strip him of his integrity and character said that he did it to gain a cheap political point, knowing that his father is the incumbent Governor.

In his own words, “This deliberate, malicious and mendacious statement has been making the rounds online and on social media platforms.”

”The unsubstantiated claim and accusation, designed to mislead the general public and calculated to malign my person for clear political gain, is not only wicked, treacherous and false but clearly most defamatory.”

“The allegation, which has been making the round without a face to it has been refuted by the state government when it first surfaced. While I find it imperative to state unambiguously that I do not hold any political office, it is evil and most wicked to make such an allegation that exists mainly in the minds of Hon. Agboola, the ZLP candidate, and his ilk against me.”

“I state with emphasis that it is the greatest disrespect and intentional distortion of facts for the said Gubernatorial candidate of the ZLP to state inter alia that I siphoned Four hundred and thirty-three million nairas of Ondo State’s funds under the disguise of consultancy fees.”

“The statement by Hon. Agboola Ajayi was calculated to disparage my person and credibility and it has caused severe damage to my reputation and professional interests.”

”In light of the above, I have instructed my lawyers to institute legal action against Hon. Agboola Ajayi to claim full damages for the harm the false and malicious statement he made has done to my reputation. He must prove this allegation in the court of law.”

It could be recalled that the Deputy Governor had on Saturday alleged that the Governor’s son, Babajide made the huge sum, which was discovered during auditing of the state’s accounts despite never rendering consultancy services to the state in any capacity.
