Eleven of the 17 registered political parties in Ondo State have collapsed their structures and now pitch their tent with the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede.
Interestingly this is happening exactly five days to the governorship election in the state.
The parties include: Accord party, Social Democratic Party SDP, African Democratic Congress, ADC, All People’s Party (APP), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Allied Peoples Movement (APM), New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP), National Resistance Movement (NRM), Labour Party (LP), Young Progressive Party YPP, and African Action Congress (AAC) Party.
Spokesperson of the political parties and the state chairman of the Social Democratic Party, Dele Ogunbameru, said at the PDP state secretariat in Akure that the coalition was necessary to galvanise victory for PDP come Saturday, while sinking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Said Ogunbaneru: “Political parties participating in Ondo 2020 governorship election in Ondo state have resolved to back the PDP candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, for the poll.
“We are committed to good governance in Ondo state, which we believe can only be offered by the PDP at this present austere period.
“There is no gainsaying that the present political leadership in Ondo state can best be described as nothing but an antenna in the face of things.
“This collaboration is an organised effort to save Ondo state from the political quagmire and undesirable socioeconomic predicament of our people
“The ten political party leaders, therefore, resolved to work as a team in tandem with the PDP well-captured manifesto for the welfare, well being and life more abundant for the good people of Ondo state ”
