Yesterday in Ondo state there was signing of the peace accord where the candidates were present including Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The event was organized in other to shun election violence .
There was a light-weight drama at the end of the peace accord. Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu refused to shake hands with Mr.Agboola Ajayi, the deputy governor of the state.
Mr. Agboola Ajayi decamped to the People Democratic Party where he lost his primaries. He immediately move to Zenith Labour Party (ZLP)
The peace pact was organised by the National Peace Committee (NPC) led by a former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar.
The MC had requested the three main candidates to hug, shake hands or bump elbows with each other as an indication that they’d embraced peace.
Akeredolu exchanged pleasantry with Jegede, PDP’s candidate by bumping elbow with him as requested by MC however when it was the flip of his deputy, the governor refused to shake hands with or embrace him.
Akeredolu merely waved at Ajayi.
Ajayi has been battling with the governor before he left the APC
