- Agboola Ajayi is qualified to contest the governorship election, according to ZLP
- The party said some people are trying to create doubts in the minds of the electorates
- Going further, its spokesman said the ultimatum given to INEC over Ajayi's certificate is meaningless
As electorates in Ondo state continue to gear up for the forthcoming governorship election, Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) has spoken on the campaign against its flagbearer who is also the deputy governor of the state
According to the party, Agboola Ajayi is eminently qualified to contest the October 10, governorship election in the state.
This was disclosed by Felix Olatunde, publicity secretary of the party. According to him, there are attempts to create doubts in the minds of members and voters because of the popularity of Ajayi, Vanguard reports.
Going further, he said the ultimatum given to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), by a lawyer, to publish the credentials of its candidate is funny.
“We just read a funny ultimatum to the Independent National Electoral Commission by someone who claims to be a lawyer, obviously acting on the prodding of some political adventurers.
“We are aware of the cloud-chasing effort of those behind the lawyer in this attempt to tout an ultimatum that is futile in its entirety," the statement read in part.
Recall that the Ondo state deputy governor officially declared for the ZLP following his failure to clinch the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship ticket.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the bid by the PDP to take over from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state is getting more difficult as the ruling party keeps gaining more followers from other parties.

The former ZLP and ADP members joined the APC in Ondo West local government area.
Legit.ng had also reported that the APC members in the state have settled their differences ahead of the coming governorship election.
With this, members of the Unity Forum arm of the party have officially dissolved the body and blended into the campaign team of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
