PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC PARTY (PDP)
ONDO STATE CHAPTER Press Release
September 22, 2016.

Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) remains PDP flagbearer for Ondo 2016 governorship election.It has become necessary to debunk the rumour being peddled by some unscrupulous elements that Jimoh Ibrahim has emerged the compromise governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State in line with the reconciliatory effort at the national level of the Party.This piece of information is not only untrue, it is patently ridiculous and atrociously offensive.
It will be a political malady of the century for Jimoh Ibrahim,who is not a bonafide  member of our party,  by whatever means, to emerge the candidate of our esteemed party, the PDP  in Ondo State.

The PDP is a serious minded party that gives thorough consideration to all the essential parameters that must be considered in choosing its flagbearers, particularly a gubernatorial candidate.

There can never be any extreme circumstance that can compel the PDP in Ondo State to settle for Jimoh Ibrahim.

The people of Ondo State are hereby informed that the rumour emanated from the pit of hell. It should therefore be discountenanced or discarded.

For the umpteenth time, the PDP in Ondo State is very proud with the candidacy of Mr Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), a man that carries much honour and integrity.

Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) has proved that he could be entrusted with the mandate of continuity of good governance in Ondo State on the platform of the PDP.

The PDP in Ondo State would rather settle for nothing than to accept such eventuality of the candidacy of Jimoh Ibrahim if it ever existed.

We therefore wish to urge all our teeming members, supporters and sympathisers to continue to blossom in the prime choice of Mr Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) as the one and only authentic candidate of the PDP in Ondo State in the November 26, 2016 governorship election.

Hon Banji Okunomo
