This is coming less than a month after Agboola was defeated by Eyitayo Jegede, a former commissioner for justice and attorney-general of the state, at the party’s primary election for the October 10 governorship election.

Jegede polled 888 votes to defeat Ajayi who had 657 votes.

In June, the deputy governor defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP.

“I appreciate the National Leadership and members of the party for their warm reception and acceptance in the short period i rejoined the party.”
