Incumbent Governor of Ondo State , Rotimi Akeredolu of All Progressives Congress (APC) had snubbed his deputy Agboola Ajayi of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) candidate during the signing of the Peace Accord for Violent free election in Ondo State.
Those present were the Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu of All Progressives Congress (APC), Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) candidate and deputy governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi, along with the candidates of other parties.
However, there was mild drama at the end of the event, as Akeredolu refused to shake hands with his deputy, Ajayi.
The three major candidates were asked to embrace, shake hands or bump elbows with one another as a sign that they had embraced peace.
Akeredolu greeted Jegede by bumping elbows, but when it was the turn of his deputy, the governor refused to shake hands with or embrace him. Instead, he just waved at Ajayi.
