Why I Withdrew From Ondo Guber Race — Eyitayo Jegede

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Lifestyle Nigeria gathered that the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state in 2020, Chief Eyitayo Jegede, on Thursday, said he withdrew from the 2024 governorship race to give room for unity and ensure victory for the party in the forthcoming governorship election.

Jegede who noted that disunity has not allowed any candidate from that party to win the governorship race in the state, said he chose to sacrifice his ambition for the development of the party.

This is just as a group within the party, PDP Crusader, hailed the decision of Jegede to step aside in the forthcoming governorship election in the state in order to build a strong and united party that can send the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) packing in the state.

The Coordinator of the PDP Crusader, Hon Mayokun Akinmoladun, said the group was ready to follow and support Jegede in any decision he took on the party’s primary and the November 16 governorship election.

Akinmoladun said the most important thing to the party is to come together and rescue the state, noting that the party was not being run the way it was supposed to be.

He said the party may go into extinction if care is not taken, and commended Jegede for financing the party since it lost the governorship seat some eight years ago.
