“Handing over the governance of the state to Agboola is a non-issue and we are not even considering that.

“I know as a matter of fact nobody would want to do that and if we advise the governor it should be on what basis?

“He (deputy governor) has created an unusual scenario upon which he wanted to climb into the next step in his political ambition and we have seen this as a misadventure.

“We cannot toil with what we have built over the years. We cannot risk and attempt to hand over to someone who has exhibited the widest scenario of betrayal.

He however, denied that all government activities in the state had been grounded as a result of the governor’s COVID-19 status.
