Babajide Akeredolu, son of Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has threatened to institute legal action against the Deputy Governor of the state, Mr Agboola Ajayi, for alleging that he was involved in a N4.3 billion kept in a secret account by the previous administration.
Ajayi allegedly said, during his campaign rally on Saturday in Ore, Odigbo Local Government Area of the state, that Babajide received the sum of N433 million from the lump figure.
Babajide on his twitter handle said, “My attention has been drawn to the spurious allegations made against me by Hon. Agboola Ajayi, the governorship candidate of the Zenith Labour Party during his campaign rally on the 19th of September, 2020 at Ore in Odigbo local government area.
“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.”
