Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have expressed confidence of their candidate’s victory in the October governorship election in Ondp state.
While flagging off the party’s campaign on Saturday in Akure, PDP national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to demonstrate good leadership by ensuring the upcoming Edo and Ondo governorship elections are credible and violence free.
The PDP chairman said failure to conduct free and fair elections was greatly affecting the country’s democracy and urged Ondo State citizens to vote for the party’s flag-bearer, Eyitayo Jedege, saying that “the PDP remains the only party that can eradicate the suffering that has been ravaging the state since the inception of APC administration”.
The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde who doubles as Chairman of the National PDP Campaign Council for Ondo State election, said people should not be scared to vote the party as Oyo people did in 2019.
“Last week, they came and told you to vote for them because of 2023, this election is not about presidency for Yoruba, it is all about delivery of good governance.
“Don’t be scared, in 2019 in Oyo State, we were not at the Federal Government level, not even at the local level, but we have God and human beings and we won. It can happen here, too,” he said.
The National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said the massive crowd of people of Ondo State at the rally showed that they wanted power to return to the PDP in the state.
He declared that the party’s candidate, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), “will defeat Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of APC on October 10.”
