Okitipupa – A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state, Mr Larry Ogunmusire, has said that the party would win the Nov. 26 governorship election in the state.
Ogunmusire, who is the Chairman of Okitipupa Local Government Area, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Okitipupa.
He said that PDP was the most popular and masses-oriented party in the state.
He added that the emergence of former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in the state, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, as PDP’s governorship candidate for the election was a testimony that the party would win.
NAN recalls that Jegede polled 760 votes to defeat his opponent, Mr Saka Lawal, who got 22 votes at the primary election, held on Monday in Akure.
Ogunmusire said that the PDP was also banking on Gov. Olusegun Mimiko’s good performance to ride to victory.
“The current administration has performed beyond expectation with masses-oriented programmes, which will pave way for the party’s victory at the forthcoming governorship election.
“We also have the best candidate in person of Jegede, who has worked for the state and indeed accepted by the masses; so, I am bold to tell you that continuity is the game,” Ogunmusire said.
He urged the electorate to vote for Jegede at elections “for more dividends of democracy’’. (NAN)
