The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State has urged the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Eyitayo Jegede to join the progressives for rehabilitation.
According to the party in a statement issued to the media on Friday, the call became pertinent so as to ease the trauma Jegede is allegedly going through ahead of Saturday’s governorship poll.
Publicity Secretary of the APC in the state, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, in the statement issued in Akure it will be better for Jegede to cross over to avoid the embarrassing defeat on Saturday that could compound to his already traumatized political situation.
Adesanya stated that Jegede’s case became worse because of his attachment to his boss -Governor Mimiko.
“It could have been better for him (Jegede) if he had disengaged himself from Mimiko’s tutelage long time ago. The deadly political virus Mimiko is induced with, was responsible for the infections affecting Mr. Eyitayo Jegede.” Adesanya wrote.
The Party said, the emergence of Jegede as the PDP candidate at this ‘injury time’ is an eye opener that, PDP is in disarray and has already lost the governorship election in the State.
APC therefore advised Mr. Eyitayo Jegede to take things easy and join hands with APC, as the governorship election is a lost battle for him, and that he stands a very good chance another time.
