- The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has ended its campaign for the governorship seat in the Ondo state election
- Governor Makinde of Oyo state was on hand to lead the event in Ondo town, on Wednesday
- Makinde was joined by the national chairman, Uche Secondus, and other PDP governors and party leaders
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday, October 7, brought its governorship campaign rally in Ondo state to an end, with the assurance that its candidate, Eyitayo Jegede will coast home to victory in Saturday’s election.
Jegede defeated seven other aspirants to win the PDP ticket back in August. The Senior Advocate of Nigeria returns as the opposition party's candidate in 2020 after losing to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2016.
The opposition party shared pictures of members at the event on Twitter wearing PDP-printed regalia.
Those present at the rally include the PDP national chairman, UcheSecondus, chairman of the Ondo guber campaign, Governor Seyi Makinde, Governor Nyesom Wike, former Kano state governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
Before heading to the PDP Ondo governorship finale in Ondo town the governors and leaders of PDP stopped at the palace of HRM, Oba Aladetoyinbo Ogunlade Aladelusi, Odundun II, and the Deji of Akure.
Jegede, the former attorney-general of the state will have to face the incumbent governor of the state, and his embattled deputy governor, Agboola Alfred Ajayi.
It would be recalled that Governor Makinde on Saturday, September 12, stormed Akure, the Ondo state capital for the flag-off of PDP's campaign for the governorship election.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that in Ondo state, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) seems to have fallen apart as its governorship candidate, Peter Fasua, stepped down for APC candidate, 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.
