ONDO 2020: Uneasy calm pervades Ondo PDP over deputy governor's slot

By Dayo Johnson

THERE is confusion in the camp of the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede over the rejection of his choice for deputy by leaders of the party in the state.

Vanguard was informed that aside the name of Jegede’s favourite lkengbonu Gboluga, two additional names have been submitted to him by the leaders of the party in the state for consideration.

They include one of the aspirants whose campaign was adjudged the best during the primary and who is from ilaje, Hon Banji Okunomo and the first female Speaker in the history of the state House of Assembly, Rt Hon Jumoke Akindele.

Jegede had favoured his friend and close ally who is presently a member of the House of Representatives Ikengboju

Gboluga as his deputy in defiance to other stakeholders including party leaders across the state and his co-contestants in the primary.
