- The PDP and ZLP have denied the much talked about the alliance between the two parties for the Ondo governorship election
- The parties described the alleged plan to form an alliance as mere rumour
- Recall that the PDP and the ZLP were reportedly planning to form an alliance to face Akeredolu at the governorship poll
Ahead of the Ondo state governorship election, political actors in the sunshine state continue to renew their strategies to be victorious on Saturday, October 10.
In a report by TVC News, the alleged plan to form an alliance between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) has been ruled out.
According to both political parties, the much talked about alliance has been described as mere rumour.
It was gathered that the rumoured alliance may not work between the two opposition parties for the highly anticipated governorship election.
Babatope Okeowo, the media aide of the ZLP candidate, said the Ondo state deputy governor does not need to enter into an alliance with any political party before winning the election.
The media coordinator of the Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation, Benson Enikuomehin, on his part described the rumoured alliance as a typical tale by the moonlight.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that in a grand plan to wrestle power from the incumbent governor of the state, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, the candidate of PDP and his ZLP counterpart were said to be planning to form a working alliance to win the election.
But two days after the reported alliance between PDP and ZLP, the state deputy governor denied the alleged plan.
Ajayi said the alleged alliance with the PDP candidate is a figment of the imagination of those making the claim.
He said those who reported the claim in the media are paid disinformation agents of the state government.
In a statement issued by the chief press secretary to the deputy governor, Babatope Okeowo, he said the publication was planted by Governor Akeredolu.
