The political crisis rocking Ondo state ahead of the October 10 governorship election took another dimension as the Secretary to Ondo State Government, Ifedayo Abegunde, resigned his appointment with immediate effect, on Monday.
Abegunde made this known in a telephone interview with The Punch.
When asked, the former SSG said, “Yes, I did, this week; effective today (Monday). As a matter of fact, I’m about to speak to the Press.”
On the reason for his decision, Abegunde said, “When I speak, I will speak very clear and loud.”
The PUNCH sighted a letter Abegunde wrote and directed to the state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
The letter titled ‘Letter of Resignation Effective 6th July 2020’ read, “I, Hon. Ifedayo Sunday Abegunde, the Secretary to the State Government of Ondo State hereby tender my letter of resignation.
“I want to thank Mr Governor for giving me the opportunity to serve the Government and people of Ondo State
“Again, my family and I wish Mr Governor quick recovery.”
