In a statement issued by the spokesman of Jegede Campaign Organisation, Mr Gbenga Akinmoyo, Jegede said he has not collapsed his structure for another party.


In the statement titled ’Eyitayo Jegede remains the candidate to beat’, the PDP candidate said he was still in the race  to win the forthcoming election.


The statement read, “In a desperate move to deceive the general public some dubious individuals are circulating falsehood that the PDP candidate Eyitayo Jegede SAN has collapsed structure. This is a lie from the pit of hell.


“In the last few hours, Eyitayo Jegede has received support from 11 out of the 16 other governorship candidates who collapsed their structures for him and the PDP. He has signed the peace accord confirming commitment to a violence-free election.


“Jegede has meticulously worked to complete his campaign tour across the length and breadth of Ondo State and just yesterday (Wednesday) held the closing rally in an elaborate and colourful ceremony at Ondo West Local Government where thousands of supporters joined Jegede to receive the PDP national officers from Abuja led by the National Chairman Uche Secondus, several PDP governors and former governors led by the Chairman of PDP Governor’s Forum, His Excellency Aminu Tambuwal in the presence of a long list of party chieftains and stalwarts from all over Nigeria.”

    1. The incumbent governor of the state has never had it this tough before in political career thus far, with fear of him loosing the echelon seat to his subordinate who has grown wings like an eagle to challenge his boss/ Master who they both worked together in the first administration,but to him was filled with some unprofessionalism in the ethics of true governance been administered to its populace,this however gave the former 2nd Citizen of Ondo state to step down and challenge for the top most position in the Most Active Nigerian state in the past days,with tensions high on who will finally emerge the Victor.both PDP and APC are paranoid at this juncture of what is going on underground from the other quarter…We wait and see what will eventually unfold with our mouths open and hands crossed.

  1. All this are not important, that important thing is the election should be free and fair,the candidate that emerge as the winner should serve the people with all his mights
