The Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee of the Peoples Democratic Party has said that Mr Eyitayo Jegede remains the party’s flag-bearer in the Ondo governorship election.
In a statement by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the party said that Friday’s ruling of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja, did not in any way affect the matter of the PDP candidacy in Ondo state’s election, fixed for Nov. 26.
He said that the issue of Ondo governorship was not the matter before Justice Abang in the suit.
“The matter before his Lordship was in relation to the 2019 general elections. For the avoidance of doubt, Eyitayo Jegede remains the flag bearer of the PDP in the Saturday, Nov. 26, Ondo State Governorship Election,” he said.
Adeyeye called on all members and supporters of PDP as well as the electorate in Ondo state not to allow the ruling to distract them.
He said that they should rather continue with the campaigns to ensure the victory of Jegede in the election.
The Abuja court had on Friday ruled that Jimoh Ibrahim be recognised as the PDP gubernatorial candidate in Ondo State.
