Ondo 2016: Why I am next Ondo gov —Jimoh Ibrahim

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo state, Mr,  Jimoh Ibrahim, on Monday, ruled out embarking on aggressive or intensive campaign to win the poll, saying he was on a familiar terrain

Ibrahim, who stated this in Akure, Ondo State capital, during a parley with journalists, said he needed little or introduction to the electorate in the state, saying he had paid his dues.

He said: “This is not my first time of running for the governorship of the state. In 2003, I ran for the governorship of the state under ANPP. So, politics is not new and I’m not like those people who are running for the first time, I need  not to do all the work by moving to all the nooks and corners of Ondo State.

“I am not new to the people of Ondo State. I ran before and I have a very impressive result at the last engagement when I ran for the governorship of this state. It’s my ambition to become the governor of this state and I’m back to realise that ambition.”

Speaking on the choice of Mr Eyitayo Jegede, by the Markafi’ faction of the PDP as the party’s candidate in the state, he said “Jegede is brand new in the system and let him take his time,

“It took me 2008 to the present date to join this political legitimacy. You cannot come just in one day and begin to think you can win election like that in Ondo State. Nobody just comes and enter like that. Take your time and queue behind.”
