PDP, party to beat —Jegede

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo State, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, at the weekend, said the PDP will win the November 26 governorship election with wide margin.

Jegede stated this in Akure during a road show organised by the leadership of the party after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced his name as the authentic candidate of the PDP for the governorship election.

Addressing the people, he assured them that he would not disappoint if elected  as the governor of the state, saying “Happening today is a confirmation of what we all know that I am the only candidate of the PDP.

“I wonder why everybody is interested in PDP’s candidate. There was a transparent primaries here in Akure and a winner emerged and that was my self.

“Look at the level of support demonstrated by the people both young and old and I am excited by this affirmation and confirmation of friendship by the people who represent voters in Ondo State.

“I believe that this demonstration of support is also a call to duty in its own way.

“Despite the harsh economic condition, our people are still supportive. They are still excited about the prospect that lies ahead.”

He, however, urged the people to come out in their large numbers to vote for him and PDP during the election.
