Eyitayo Jegede has said that he will appeal the emergence of Jimoh Ibrahim as the official Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the November 26 elections in Ondo.

Ibrahim, the governorship candidate of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction, was announced as the official candidate by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday, October 27.

Jegede, who represents the Ahmed Makarfi faction, made his comments via a statement released by his spokesman, Fasua Kayode. The statement reads:

“Eyitayo Jegede, your son and brother, has not in any way abdicated the general consent given to him by the law-abiding members of the PDP to seek election into the office of the Governor.

“Like I have always said, I am guided by the Almighty and the shared vision to transform this state to a land of wealth and prosperity. You remain my priority as we, in faith, match on to the Promised Land.”
