The governorship candidate of the Zenith Labour Party in Ondo State, Agbooa Ajayi, had vowed that he would defeat the sitting Governor of the state, Rotimi Akeredolu and the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede.
The state Deputy Governor revealed the reasons he would emerge the next Governor of Ondo State.
Ajayi noted that the ruling party in the state and the Governor has failed the people.
He accused the ruling party and the Governor of lacklustre performance, adding that the “PDP had no structure to win election in Ondo State.”
He stated this when he received former PDP members in Okitipupa Local Government, led by a former governorship aspirant, Mr. Banji Okunomo and an ex-chairman of the local government, Mr. Solomon Bitire, on Wednesday.
The Deputy Governor accused the PDP, a party he joined and was defeated at the primaries of having “breached the zoning arrangement and would, therefore, be punished by voters.”
According to Ajayi, the “achievements of Akeredolu in the last three and a half years fell short of people’s expectations.”
He further stated that the people of Ondo State would punish the incumbent Governor with their votes.
