Mr Eyitayo Jegede, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has finally settled for Hon. Ikengboju Gboluga as his running mate, even as he submitted his name to the national chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus in Abuja on Monday.
It was gathered today that the name of Gboluga has been forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to replace the name of Olumide Ogunje early submitted by Jegede ahead of tomorrow’s deadline for substitution of candidates’ names.
I ACCEPT MY NOMINATION AS JEGEDE’S RUNNING MATE
With a mind full of gratitude and immense responsibility, I wish to inform the public that I humbly accept my nomination as the running mate of our great party’s governorship candidate, Eyitayo Jegede SAN as we head into the October 10 Guber Poll in full fledge.
Before I go further, it’s pertinent to acknowledge the impressive support of our party leaders both at the national and state levels, members of the PDP within and beyond the state, my teeming supporters as well as different political, economic and socio-cultural groups. I sincerely thank you for believing in me. By God’s grace, I promise not to let you down.
To the incoming Governor of Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede SAN, as much as I’m grateful for this call to serve my people at a different level, I equally covet your decision making skill. You have shown that Ondo State is in for the best come 2021 when you would be sworn in as Governor of the State. God’s work “Iseoluwa”, a journey we are embarking upon will be beautifully prosecuted.
To the good people of Ondo State, I urge you all not to be swayed by Greek gifts, propaganda or threat by any party, group or candidate. PDP is a peaceful home for all and with your support we’re all set to make the sun shine again.
I love to urge all members and leaders of the PDP across the state to join hands with the party and her candidate in utmost good faith. Hence, be rest assured that we shall all play our role in taking our state to where it ought to be.
Permit me to quickly reassure everyone that when elected, governance will be prosecuted in a pragmatic and progressive manner. Your prayers, unflinching support and guarded votes would tentatively see us through to Alagbaka come October 10.
God bless PDP,
God bless Ondo State,
God bless Nigeria.
Hon. Gboluga Dele, IKENGBOJU
Deputy Governorship Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
