Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, is fast gaining the reputation of “journey man” of Nigerian politics.
Ajayi, less than two months after decamping from the ruling All Progressives Congress to join the People’s Democratic Party, is set to dump the main opposition party for Zenith Labour Party.
Ajayi had joined the PDP with high hopes of picking the party’s ticket to the forthcoming Governorship Elections but lost to out Eyitayo Jegede in the primaries.
Efforts by the party heirachy to persuade Jegede to pick him as his deputy proved abortive as the former was said not to have the much needed trust in him.
Ajayi has now been cleared by the National Executive Committee of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) to contest the October governorship election under its platform.
He was said to have met with former Governor Olusegun Mimiko to discuss the choice of running mate ahead of formal joining of the ZLP on Monday.
