The PDP Governors’ has debunk rumour of division among members with respect to Ondo state Governorship election.
The Forum in a statement issued by the Director General PDP Governors’ forum Hon. C.I.D. Maduabum, LL.M described the news as tendentious, malicious, prejudicial, biased, conjured, procured, inciting, false and fake story planted by retrogressive and reactionary forces.
Maduabum further said; “For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP Governors’ Forum is united, strong and primed to do its utmost to elect our candidate in the Ondo Governorship election, EYITAYO JEGEDE, SAN, who has the experience, dynamism and programme of action to return Ondo State to her glory days.
We think that the story is the handwork of 5th columnists, who are afraid of the popularity of the PDP candidate and his likely victory, and has devised this means of creating doubts in the minds of Nigerians as a strategy for stopping the march of victory by PDP in Ondo. Nothing can stop the march of progress in Ondo. Indeed, Jegede’s victory is one whose time has come.”
As a matter of fact, the PDP Governors just rose from a virtual meeting few days ago with a firm resolve and commitment to make sure that all hands are on deck to support and deliver the PDP candidate, the statement said.
The PDP Governors are fully aware of the importance of the Ondo elections to the image, solidarity and fortunes of the PDP as a political party. The Governors are in no doubt that any division in its ranks will be counter productive to PDP, her candidate and its quest to restore democracy, good governance, and accountability not only in Ondo State but Nigeria at large.
He further said; “The PDP Governors will in fact storm Akure on 7th October for the grand Finale of the PDP Governorship campaign to conclude a memorable grassroots based campaign mounted by the PDP and her candidate in the last few weeks that has seemingly turned the tide in Ondo.”
