The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, has picked Gboye Adegbenro, as his running mate for the Ondo Governorship election.
It was gathered that Adegbenro will be officially unveiled on Monday as the party’s deputy governorship candidate.
Confirming Adegbenro as the ZLP’s choice, the state Chairman of the party, Mr. Joseph Akinlaja, said he will be announced on Monday.
Meanwhile, a former Commissioner for Youths and Sports Yekini Olanipekun has, however, denied eyeing the ZLP governorship ticket.
He said he was not a member of ZLP and never sought to run on the party’s platform.
Olanipekun said: “I’m not part of ZLP. I didn’t lobby and never discussed with anybody that I wanted to be running mate on ZLP’s platform.”
