ONE hundred and fourteen delegates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have pledged to vote for Mr. Eyitayo Jegede at the primary of the party tomorrow.
The delegates are from Akure South Local Government. The endorsement coincided with a statement by another aspirant, Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi, urging unity for the party to defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A former deputy governor of the state, Otunba Omolade Oluwateru, said Jegede paraded the best qualities and deserved to win the party’s primary.
Oluwateru, a member of the PDP Board of Trustees and former Nigerian Ambassador to Uganda, said Jegede could be trusted, having sustained his loyalty to the PDP despite losing the governorship election in 2016.
He says this is a golden opportunity for you, to tell the entire people of Ondo State that Akure has an exceptional son who can fulfill the yearnings and aspirations of the masses of the state.
