The Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff-led faction of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has discribed the emergence of Mr Jimoh Ibrahim as Ondo state’s governorship candidate for the party  as victory for the rule of law.

The faction of the PDP made the observation in a statement signed by its acting National Publicity Secretary,Mr Bernard Mikko, on Thursday in Abuja.

Mikko also described the recognition of the candidature of Ibrahim by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as victory for Ondo people.
“The INEC recognition of Jimoh Ibrahim is not only victory for the people of Ondo state, but also a victory for the rule of law and diminishing impunity in our electoral system.
“The PDP NWC under the leadership of Sen Ali Modu Sheriff is pleased with this development.
“The party hereby congratulates the people of Ondo state as they go to polls on Nov. 26 to vote PDP and elect Mr Jimoh Ibrahim as their next governor,” Mikko said.
INEC had earlier published the name of Ibrahim as candidate cleared for the PDP and 27 other candidates of political parties contesting the election.
Blackface News recalls that while Ibrahim name was submitted by Sheriff-led faction, Sen. Ahmed Makarfi-led faction also submitted to INEC the name of Mr Eyitayo Jegede as the party’s candidate.
