Ondo: Jegede’s candidacy remains unchanged – PDP



PDP candidate thumps up conduct of Ondo poll

The People Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, said on Thursday it has no plans to change its governorship candidate in the Nov. 26 election.

A press statement issued in Akure by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Banji Okunomo, said nothing will happen to the candidacy of Eyitayo Jegede (SAN).

Okunomo urged party supporters to disregard what he called “rampaging distortion of facts and misrepresentations” on the matter by a section of the party.

“We are also in the know of the syndicated report/newsflash which aim to misinform the public as regards the status of the true PDP candidate in the fast approaching gubernatorial election in the State.”

The publicity secretary assured that the party at state and national level, is working to ensure that Jegede’s candidacy remain.

“We are therefore enjoined to remain calm, steadfast and resolute pending when the list would be officially released to the public,” Okunomo said.
