According to report reaching oyogist.com, the All Progressive Congress (APC), has reportedly said that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate of the last Ondo state gubernatorial election, Eyitayo Jegede, would loose at the ongoing election tribunal.
Mr. Jegede had earlier filed a petition at the tribunal, challenging the outcome of the October 10th, 2020 poll which brought in the current Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
Reacting to the petition filed by the People’s Democratic Party candidate, the All Progressive Congress state Director Media and Publicity, Mr. Steve Otaloro, stated that the move was a laughable act of ignorance on the part of the PDP.
“The recent insinuation by Mr Eyitayo Jegede that he will reclaim the Ondo State governorship election mandate given to Governor Akeredolu at the election petition tribunal is laughable as it reflects the embodiment of ignorance on his part.
“In simple terms, the people of Ondo State have, freely, chosen between APC and other political parties in the state. Therefore, for Mr Jegede who was strongly rejected at the election to be hopeful of reclaiming the said mandate at a court of law is subject to wishful thinking.
“Mr Jegede and the PDP should continue to tell their fairy tales about how they wish the outcome of the tribunal verdict would be, but the good news is that they can not be the judge in their own case.”
