Ahead of the November governorship election in Ondo State, two former commissioners, who recently resigned from the state cabinet, on Tuesday picked the nomination forms and expression of interest of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
They picked their forms from the Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of the party in the state.
The two aspirants are former Environment Commissioner, Sola Ebiseni and his counterpart from Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Bamiduro Dada.
They said they decided to pitch their tent with Sherif-led faction because he remains the authentic chairman of the party in the face of the law.
Dada said the need to liberate the state and the freedom of choice which he described as beauty of democracy were responsible for his obtaining the form from Sheriff-led faction.
Ebiseni also said he opted for the faction to deliver the party from dictators in the state.
Dada said “I love being in the right camp and I believe in equity and fairness and this is one of the reasons I opted for an authentic faction.
“The step I am taking today will yield positive development for the people of the state. I don’t believe in sectional agenda because I am a detribalised person who believes in the development of the state.”
