Ondo 2020: Group trains 400 volunteers to campaign for Jegede


A  group supporting the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, the Aiye Dera Independent Support Group says  it will adopt the Jehovah Witness’s preaching style to campaign Eyitayo Jegede.


The group has trained over 400 volunteers that would help in the door to door campaign.


Coordinator of the group, Ayokanmi Edu, told journalists in Ondo town that the volunteers would take PDP message of hope to people in their houses.


He expressed optimism that the people would appreciate the new campaign approach.


Edu said the project would be experimented in Ondo West local government before expanding it to other towns.


His words, “We believe in the aspiration of Eyitayo Jegede. We organise a structure of campaign with 466 volunteers from across the local government. They will move from house to house telling the people why they should vote for the PDP.


“We have trained them on how to meet peoole and talk to them convincingly. We believe the people will appreciate this method.”


A member of the team, Bode Obanla, said it was a scientific approach to political campaign. 


“It is a concept of the Jehova Witness. We want to bring a new approach to campaigns. We will give them kits. Those trained will move from house to house.
