Aspirants vying for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket have accused the Ondo state deputy governor Agboola Ajayi of doctoring delegates' list to be used for the party's primary election.
Agboola faces tough hurdles to secure the PDP ticket after pulling out of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in what climaxed the feud between him and his estranged principal, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
With just seven days to the shadow poll of the main opposition party, some aspirants accused Ajayi of injecting the delegates' list with 101 fake names.
The list, which is being monitored by Kinsley Chinda committee, was said to have been tampered with by Ajayi who they said is showing desperation to win the party ticket.
The aspirants, numbering seven, have now tabled their grievances to Hassan Dakwanmbo-led appeal committee, warning against conducting the primary election with the allegedly doctored list.
The seven aspirants were Ayorinde Bode, Ebiseni Sola, Eyitayo Jegede, Kunlere Boluwaji, Okunomo Banji Ben, Eddy Olafeso and Gooday Erewa.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that there is an ongoing battle of ego and wits in Ondo state as aspirants running on the platform of PDP rejected the idea to step down for the state deputy governor.
Aspirants including Banji Okunomo, Elder Eddy Olafeso, Eyitayo Jegede have picked the party’s nomination forms.
Agboola has also been reaching out to top hierarchies of PDP in the state in a deal that will see other frontline aspirants peacefully bow out after buying the nomination form.
Permutations are similarly ongoing to pair Ajayi with Eyitayo Jegede, another political strongman in Ondo state who contested in the state last guber poll.
