All Progressives Congress gubernatorial candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu has remained undaunted despite the return of Eyitayo Jegede of the People’s Democratic Party to the governorship contest of Ondo.
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu in his reaction to Eyitayo Jegede’s victory at the appeal court said he can defeat both PDP factional candidates.
After a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Akeredolu told Channels Television, ”The election is already settled. I don’t see any problem. I have always said that even if both of them [Jegede and Ibrahim] run, i’ll defeat them.”
”Jegede is no longer a factor in this election. There is nothing anybody can do, the election is this Saturday, and there is nothing they can do any longer. There is no problem at all. Just that they are throwing spanner in the works of the PDP. I don’t think PDP has a part in this election’‘.
Meanwhile, the election is expected to be a stiff contest between Olusola Oke of the Alliance for Democracy and Akeredolu of the APC, according to political analysts.
