Cabinet members of the Ondo State Government have refuted allegations of defection rumour, describing it as the handiwork of political enemies.

It is reported that there was alleged rumour of planned defection of some top cabinet members in the state from APC to other parties on social media.

The executive members, who unanimously echoed their staunch support to their political party, the All Progressives Congress, (APC), made their stand known during the weekly State Executive Council, (SEC) meeting in Akure on Tuesday.

The meeting was presided over by the state Deputy Governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi, who said that all is well with SEC and APC in the State.

“Everything is peaceful in APC of Ondo State, we are very much intact. The party and all of us, we are one and I do not know and I am not aware of that anybody else among us is leaving or planning to leave the party for another.

“Yes, it is a normal thing for people to contest for election which is a beauty of democracy and APC will not dictate for you, but allow grassroots to choose who will represent them at various levels of elective positions come 2019 elections,”he said.

According to him, if anybody wants to resign and contest, it is a different thing.

He added that APC family in the state is doing everything possible to move the state forward.

“I can assure you that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu will leave Ondo State better than he met it after spending 8 years,”he said.
