- SDP candidate in Ondo state has abandoned his ambition
- The candidate has now declared his support for Governor Akeredolu
- Meanwhile, his deputy has declared support for PDP's candidate Jegede
In Ondo state, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) seems to have fallen apart as its governorship candidate, Peter Fasua, stepped down for All Progressives Congress candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu.
This comes a few hours after its state chairman, Dele Ogunbameru, led the chairmen of 10 other political parties to announce their support for the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede.
With this, the SDP has partly supported the candidates of the two major political parties in the state and the party no longer has a candidate for the governorship election, TVC news reports.
“I decided to step down and support Governor Akeredolu as I am convinced that my own desires and plans for Ondo State will be achieved totally by Governor Akeredolu.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that ahead of the Saturday, October 10, governorship election in Ondo state, a former deputy governor of Osun state, Iyiola Omisore, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state and other chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have stormed the state in solidarity for Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
Akeredolu appealed to the people of the state not to lower the credibility and reputation of the state before the general public, urging them to vote wisely.
Legit.ng gathered that Akeredolu spoke in his Owo country home when his campaign train visited the town, adding that if the calibre of people struggling to take over his position is factored into consideration, the Saturday’s election is a battle between the intellectuals and the incompetent league.
Legit.ng had also reported that Governor Akeredolu's re-election bid got a boost after he was endorsed on Tuesday, October 6, by the Deji of Akure Kingdom, Oba Ogunlade Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi.
It was reported that during his hosting of the governor at the palace, Oba Aladelusi described Akeredolu as a governor who surprised him by fulfilling his campaign promises to the people of the kingdom.
