The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo North senatorial district, on Monday, adopted one of the party’s governorship aspirants, Eyitayo Jegede, ahead of the primaries.
The leaders, who said that all the aggrieved aspirants from the zone would soon align with the decision of the people of the area, assured that the primaries of the party will be rancour free.
Subsequently, a five-man committee was set up by the leaders and members of the party from the zone to resolve crisis among governorship aspirants of the party from the zone.
The aggrieved aspirants included Mr Bamiduro Dada, Alhaji Yekini Olanipekun, Mr Dayo Fadahunsi, Prince Nekan Olateru-Olagbegi, Honourable Bakitta Bello, Senator Remi Okunrinboye and Mr Gbenga Elegbeleye.
The aggrieved aspirants had vowed not to participate in the party’s primaries involving anybody from Ondo Central senatorial district because of an alleged endorsement of Mr Eyitayo Jegede by the governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko.
