The deputy governor of Ondo state, Agboola Ajayi, is reportedly about to record another political loss after his defeat in the just concluded governorship election.

Ajayi who contested the election on the platform of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) lost woefully as he failed to win in any local government.

He had resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the buildup to the governorship election and eventually ended up contesting against his boss, Rotimi Akeredolu.

However, The Nation reports that the deputy governor is now under pressure to tender his resignation or face impeachment after losing the election.

The newspaper reported that even some close allies of the deputy governor in the state House of Assembly who stood against his impeachment before the election are now asking him to resign.

The deputy governor's allies reportedly said they were urging him to resign to avoid "unnecessary impeachment brouhaha".

Some of the sources said Ajayi might turn in his letter of resignation to the Speaker of the Assembly before the end of this week.

It was gathered some key friends of Ajayi, including a northern governor, was reached to advise him accordingly to resign.

A top Ondo government official reportedly said that aggressive steps will be taken to ensure Ajayi is impeached if he fails to tender his resignation letter.
