Ondo CP replies Dep Gov; I am not a politician

The Ondo State Police Commissioner, Salami Bolaji, has responded to the claims of the Deputy Governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi, that he has no affiliation with politics and that his main duty is to ensure the safety of residents of the state as well as their properties.

The disclosure was made in a statement that was signed by the Police spokesman, ASP Tee-Leo Ikoro, where the CP cleared air on his visit to the Ondo State Government House on Saturday night.

The CP explained that his visit was based on the information he received from Policemen who could not settle dispute between aides of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and the Deputy Governor.

It would be recalled that the dispute broke out between the aides of the Governor and the Deputy Governor on Saturday night, over the number of cars that could be moved out of the place by the Deputy Governor that night.


However, after having been called upon by the Policemen who were present in the Government House, the CP said that he visited the place in order to settle the dispute and to allow peace to reign.

Contrary to the claims of the Deputy Governor of being a politician, the CP thereby deemed it fit to respond to him of being a neutral person that has interest in securing the lives of people and their property, instead of being a politician.

CP Salami said he viewed the viral video as an attempt to foment sentiment and misunderstanding in the state.

He disclosed that he would not tolerate lawlessness in the state as soon as he remains the CP in the state.

According to him, “It is only necessary that his presence at the scene as the Command’s Commissioner of Police could calm frayed nerves.

“Having listened to the reason for the misunderstanding, he advised both sides to come to terms, a condition they both agreed.

“CP Salami has never been a politician all through his life and would not want to be dragged into politics.

“He advised the good people of Ondo that as the race to Ondo government house draws very close, politicians with interest in the race should learn to play their game with the dictate of its laws; and also advise their followers to shun any act capable of causing chaos or lawlessness in the State as he concluded”.

“He vowed to police Ondo State and its people with humility. He will not allow the ego and sentiment of any individual dictate what form of policing style he should use”.
