Following the ruling of the appellate court that Peoples Democratic Party’s Eyitayo Jegede be reinstated as the party’s candidate at the ongoing Ondo poll, Jimoh Ibrahim has declared support for opposition party, All Progressives Congress. Ibrahim, who had hitherto been the PDP’s candidate at the poll, took to Twitter to declare support for APC’s Rotimi Akeredolu.
“ONLY Akeredolu possess the right mentality, competence, readiness and moral amplitude to lead Ondo State,” Jimoh tweeted on his Twitter handle, @JimohIbrahimOFR.
“Having considered all the candidates asking for the job of Governor of Ondo state, I have come to the conclusion that only Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN of the APC possess the right mentality, competence, readiness and moral amplitude to lead Ondo State.
“I am therefore directing all our PDP party leaders, ward evangelists and unit canvassers, supporters as well as all the non politician society leaders who are working with us, including Kabiyesi’s, civil servants, workers union, religious leaders to work hard for and mobilise votes for our brother and friend Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN of APC.”
