Addressing Jegede and his entourage, the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, assured them of credible and transparent primary election come July 22.

Secondus , who was represented by the Deputy National Chairman, South, Hon. Yemi Akinwonmi,said “It is our responsibility to conduct integrity base primaries. It is not our duty here to preach any zoning . We want to assure you that we will not do anything that is not normal.

“The party is known for conducting free, fair and credible primary elections and that of Ondo state will also be free and fair because we have history of doing it right.

” We know you. You have done before and we assuring that every process will be transparent.

But observation is that since the Ondo people have been coming here for the form, I noticed they are all young men.The era of “Old school” is gradually fading away.”

Responding, the PDP aspirant, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), said his coming to Wadata House for the collection of the form, signified the end to the APC government in the state.

Jegede said, “the forthcoming governorship election is the project of all the residents of the state, not an individual project. By the special grace of God, come October 10, 2020, PDP will be declared winner of the election .

“Also, come February 2021, we will be sworn- in as the elected governor of the state on the platform of the PDP by the Grace of God . PDP is back and we are back for good. I am happy that you have assured that the party is known for transparency. We are ready to go into this and God willing, we are going to win the primary and go ahead to win the governorship election.

But he was not sure of flying the party’s flag until 48 hours to the election when the Appeal and Supreme courts dispensed with the suit brought before them by Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim and Senator Alimodu Sheriff.

Jegede came second in the poll despite his inability to campaign for vote in the said election, to the present governor of the state, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
