Eyitayo Jegede promises to exploit Natural resources for development in Ondo South. The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Candidate for Ondo 2020 governorship election, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, said the development of the southern senatorial district and her deposits is a matter of priority for him and not a theme to play politics with.
Jegede, who spoke to journalists in Akure on Saturday, was reacting to the campaign against his candidacy by the opposition with the claim that voting him from the central senatorial district of the state would take power away for too long from the southern senatorial district.
He said, “Those who are sponsorship that impression are deliberate mischief makers. And I ask, if they do not spread such unfortunate lies and tricks, what else in terms of achievements to the people of the region would they point to? This is not the first time I am saying this, and this is something that I hold close to my heart. I have travelled the south repeatedly and seen the need to make things better for the zone.
“The south produced the former governor Olusegun Agagu who was in fact a governor for all. Agagu was given the ticket of the PDP from the south three times because the party and the people believed in his to spread development across board. I am a citizen of Ondo State and I have the entire state to man and develop comparatively, but then, the natural deposits we must work with are in this region preponderantly. Those who inhabit the region deserves better.”
Jegede served as State Attorney General under Olusegun Mimiko for eight years. He will face Governor Akeredolu and other party’s candidates during Ondo 2020 election slated for October 10.
