Ajibola, in his letter of resignation, said he quit Fayose’s administration “on basic developmental issues and the economic situation in the state which he can no longer pretend over.”
In his May 28 letter, Ajibola said: “I humbly write this to formally notify you that I am resigning from my position as your S.A on Parliamentary Affairs.
“Sir, within my personal conviction, I am satisfied that I have in honesty and utmost loyalty served the PDP, the people of Ekiti and government in general.
“Therefore, I premise my resignation on some basic developmental issues and the economic situation in the state which I cannot continue to pretend over. My resignation takes off immediately.”
Ajibola was the only Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member of the House of Assembly before Fayose came to power on October 16, 2014.
He was later joined by six All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers who defected on the day Fayose was sworn in.
Fayose, has, however, approved the appointment of Mr. Alexander Adeojo to replace Ajibola.
The governor thanked Ajibola for his meaningful contributions to the administration and development of the state while he was Special Assistant, Parliamentary Matters to the Governor. [myad]
