The youths of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ijare zone of Ifedore local government area of Ondo state have pleaded with the Governor of the state not to impose one Temitope Ajayi on them, as the Chairman of the newly created Ijare Local Council Development Area.
According to the youths, Ajayi is not a member of the party because he has no membership card of the party and has not in anyway contributed to the success of the party in the zone.
Deji Akintayo spoke on behalf of the youths who gathered at the secretariat of the party in Ijare.
According to, “We have been informed, although we regard it as a rumour that Temitope Ajayi, also known as Engineer Favour has been selected to be the next Chairman of Ijare LCDA. As much as we don’t want to believe this rumour, we will love to set the record straight.
“Temitope Ajayi is not a member of our party. He is neither a registered member nor a financial member. He has not taken part in any of the activities of the party at any point in time. Even during the last General election, he did not contribute to the victory of our party’s candidates.
“Sadly, he does not even have a voters card in Ifedore local government. We don’t know if he has a voters card at all.
“We plead with our talk and do Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to help us ensure this type of evil does not befall our party in Ijare zone. We have qualified party members who have always worked for the progress of the party in the zone.
“These party members should be considered instead of non party members.” He concluded.
Other youth leaders of the party present include: Wale Makinde from Ijare ward 1; Tope Akeju from Ijare ward 2; Mr. Ogundowole Odunayo from Ekamefa Ward among others.
