PDP ‘ll give Jegede freehand to pick running mate – Secondus
The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has said that the governorship candidate of the party in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede would be given a free hand to pick his running mate.
He said the PDP would not impose any candidate on him expect his choice.
He however said running with the state Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi could be an advantage because of the support he has.
“We will actually look at the possibility (of Jegede running with Ajayi).
“However, you know the two camps must agree to work together. That is the most important thing. Also, members of the party in the state will also decide as well.”, he added.
Jegede had 888 votes while Ajayi, who defected to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress a few weeks ago, polled 657. The result of others who participated were: Eddy Olafeso (175), Banji Okunomo (90), Olabode Ayorinde (95) and Boluwaji Kunlere (33).
