According to report reaching oyogist.com, the Ondo state Governor, Rotors Akeredolu has reportedly lambasted the People’s Democratic Party’s candidate, Eyitayo Jegede for claiming that his life was being threatened as a result of him challenging the gubernatorial results.
Mr.Jegede had earlier alleged that his life and that of his family was being threatened by those who felt threatened of his legal step against the Ondo State guber election.
In a quick reply the Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor said that Eyitayo Jegede should concentrate on his legal petition against the election and stop seeking face from the people.
“lt is clear that while the resounding victory of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN against Jegede’s expectation is no longer news, the PDP candidate perhaps still lives in an unfortunate illusion.”
“Without prejudice to the tribunal, we make bold to say that the alarm raised by Jegede over what he termed “threat to life” is an evasive strategy to further hoodwink his unsuspecting followers into believing in his legal voyage which has held them spellbound.”
“If anything, Jegede should look within his party, the PDP and beam searchlight into its leadership crisis, particularly the internal wrangling which has led to the brickbats as seen in the media lately,” the Governor said.
