On Thursday, October 28, 2016, INEC named Ibrahim as the PDP’s flag-bearer for the November 26 poll.
The Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose has described the Ondo Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) guber candidate, Jimoh Ibrahim as an agent of destabilisation.
According to Punch, Fayose said Ibrahim can never become the Governor of Ondo state, adding that he is on a mission to cause confusion.
The Governor also said “I want my people in Ondo State to stand by Jegede, they should not be distracted. I believe justice will prevail. This is a fight against democracy.
“I don’t know Jimoh Ibrahim, he is not a member of the PDP, and he is a spoiler. I don’t know how Jimoh Ibrahim will rule Ondo State. Justice will prevail for Jegede, there will definitely be light at the end of the tunnel. I know it is going to be praises for Jegede and the people of the state at the end of the day.”
Fayose also alleged that some people are using the crisis in the PDP to pave way for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu to win.
The Senator Ahmed Makarfi faction of the PDP has rejected the clearance of the businessman turned politician as the party’s candidate for the Ondo governorship election.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday, October 28, 2016, named Ibrahim as the PDP’s flag-bearer for the November 26 poll.
