Plot to stop Ondo Dep Gov Agboola from PDP Guber primary thickens

A vocal chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Barrister Konstante Timi Olopele has dragged the Deputy Governor of Ondo State and a gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of PDP, Hon. Agboola Alfred Ajayi to an Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure seeking his disqualification from the July 22, 2020 primary election of the party.

The suit was filed on behalf of Olopele Konstante and other concerned members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) by Barrister Akpofiwei Anthony Macleans of AMAC Solicitors.

He averred that Hon. Agboola Ajayi has breached the code of conduct for public officers and he should therefore be banned from holding any public office for a maximum period of ten years going forward.

The experte motion brought before the court was instituted with originating summon that was dated July 17, 2020 with suit no: AK/45M/2020.

The claimant further averred that the Deputy Governor of Ondo State has consistently acted in breach of Section 1, 5th Schedule, Part 1 of the Code of Conduct for Public Officers
and Section 9 of the constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended.

The legal practitioner also hinges the prayer for the disqualification of Hon. Agboola Ajayi on the Deputy Governor’s breach of the provisions of the regulations of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Act, Cap W4 Law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 2004.

It was also contained in the suit that Agboola Ajayi had breached the extant laws that are regulating WAEC and Nigerian Law School attendance while he was serving as elected Local Government Chairman and member of the Federal House of Representatives respectively.
