The special assistant on parliamentary matters to the outspoken governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has resigned.
In a letter of resignation, Samuel Ajibola, the Special Assistant on Parliamentary Matters to Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has officially quit Fayose’s administration ‘on basic developmental issues and the economic situation in the state which he can no longer pretend over.’
In his letter dated May 28, 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.
The governor who thanked Ajibola for his meaningful contributions to the administration and development of the state while he was Special Assistant, has however approved the appointment of Alexander Adeojo to replace Ajibola.
