The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede, appears to be leaving no stone unturned as he aims to unseat Governor Rotimi Akeredeolu in the forthcoming governorship election in Edo state.
Ahead of the poll, Jegede has visited Nigeria's former president Olusegun Obasanjo to seek support.
The PDP governorship candidate shared a picture of himself with the former president on Twitter on Saturday, August 8, with the caption:
"Seeking support of the elders, the next 63 days will no doubt be decisive, we will succeed. God our help!"
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported that ahead of Ondo governorship election, the Vanguard for Justice and Fairness in PDP (VJP) has urged the national working committee of the PDP to stay united.
VJP encouraged members of the committee to throw their weight behind Eyitayo Jegede, the party's choice of governorship candidate for the Ondo election.
The political group reminded the committee that doing anything other than supporting the party's choice for the election may ruin the chances of winning at the October 10 poll.
Meanwhile, members of the Unity Forum of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state and Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu have finally reached a truce.
They agreed to work together for the success of the party in the October 10 election. Chief Olusola Oke led the forum members to visit Governor Akeredolu where the truce was reached. However, no statement was issued after the meeting.
However, an aide to Oke, Rotimi Ogunleye, said the discussion was successful. He said the governor accepted the forum’s proposal on the need for stakeholders to work for the party’s victory.
“Our group insists that because of the experience in the past where promises were made and not kept, where people were given assurances, but were denied. It is important that the reconciliation should be comprehensive, involving all the strata of our party. That is the only reconciliation that will instil confidence in our people,” he said.
