The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum has said that Eyitayo Jegede will emerge winner of Saturday’s Ondo governorship election.
Jegede is up against Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Chairman of the Forum and Sokoto Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, spoke on Sunday through the body’s Director-General, C.I.D. Maduabum.
Maduabum quoted Tambuwal as saying PDP governors were united in ensuring that Jegede becomes the next Ondo helmsman.
He also mention that that the Senior Advocate of Nigeria’s experience, dynamism and programmes will return the State to glory days.
Tambuwal criticize those suggesting that PDP governors were not supporting Jegede.
He called them fifth columnists afraid of the popularity of the party’s candidate and triumph.
“Nothing can stop the march of progress in Ondo. Jegede’s victory is one whose time has come. The Forum speaks with one voice and this naked attempt to sow division and discord within its ranks has failed miserably.
