The special assistant to the Ogun State Governor on social media, Damilola Ogunpola, has resigned his appointment.
Mr. Ogunpola confirmed the development on Thursday.
Although there have been rumours that he had a secret meeting with a political rival of his principal, he denied speculations that he had been forced out of his job.
“My next line of action is to go into my private business and later into politics”, he said on his future plans.
However, sources claimed Mr. Ogunpola was asked to resign over suspicion he held a nocturnal meeting with Solomon Adeola, who is believed to nurse the ambition of succeeding Mr. Amosun as governor in 2019.
Mr. Adeola, popularly called Yayi, is currently an All Progressives Congress senator from Lagos State but an indigene of Ogun State.
Mr. Ogunpola, popularly known as ‘Damoche’, reportedly told friends that he was on a private mission to a hotel and had no foreknowledge Mr. Adeola was lodging there.
