Senator Ike Ekweremadu has opened up on why the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) will emerge victorious at the Ondo state governorship election.
In a report by The Nation, the former deputy Senate president explained that one of the reasons PDP will defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) is because they have resolved their differences especially over the protest that followed the alleged three-man adhoc delegates list.
“The issue of the three-man delegates' election has even resolved. There were some complaints and I am happy those complaints have been resolved. The July 22nd date for the PDP primaries in Ondo is still sacrosanct," he said.
The Enugu West representative speaking in Akure after monitoring the election of national delegates from 18 local government areas of the state.
He went on to note that the delegation election was free and fair as it was well conducted
Ekweremadu while giving the assurance that the primary would hold as scheduled, noted that another reason PDP will win is that they have made progress.
The party chieftain explained that after losing four years ago, PDP is ready to get the power back in the state. He added that part of PDP's problem was disunity, but they can see the difference and have learned their lesson.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that aspirants vying for the 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 APC in what climaxed the feud between him and his estranged principal, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
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.
Also, there is an ongoing battle of ego and wits in Ondo state as aspirants running on the platform of the PDP rejected the idea to step down for the state deputy governor.
PDP 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.
