It has become clear that the gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede would not pick the incumbent Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi as his running-mate.
Jegede on Monday submitted names of two members of the party to the leadership of the party in Akure, the state capital, for it to pick one of them as his running-mate.
The persons on the list submitted by the PDP’s standard bearer for the October 10, 2020 gubernatorial election in the state are Hon. Gboluga Ikengboju and Mrs. Banke Sutton.
This development, however, put to rest the rumour that the PDP’s candidate was considering picking the incumbent deputy governor as his running-mate.
Jegede emerged victorious with 888 votes at the Wednesday party’s primary which held at the DOME, while the incumbent Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, came second with 657 votes.
