The Ondo State governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has debunked rumour claiming that the Commissioner of Police in the state restrained his deputy, Agboola Ajayi, from leaving the Government House based on his directive.
This was stated in a release made available to newsmen on Sunday in Akure, by the chief press seceretary to the governor, Mr Olusegun Ajiboye.
The governor, however, described the reports as absolute falsehood intended to play victim by the principal actors involved.
“It should, however, be placed on record that it is a time-tested code in government’s business for officials to take inventory of offices and quarters before and after an official moves in or out of offices or quarters.
It becomes particularly worrisome and suspicious when aides of the deputy governor insisted on leaving the premises with items wrapped in unclear ownership as late as 11 pm.
“Governor Akeredolu reiterates his commitment to the rights of all, including the deputy governor.
“But he has a duty to be firm and dispassionate in exercising the roles assigned to him,” Ajiboye said. (NAN)
