Ondo 2020: How PDP will defeat APC in Guber Poll – Ekweremadu

Senator Ike Ekweremadu has boasted that the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) will defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress in the October governorship election.

Former Deputy Senate President made this known while speaking to reporters in Akure on Thursday. He said the PDP will win the election due to the fact that residents of the state are fed up with the Rotimi Akeredolu administration.

Ekweremadu added that the party has settled the dispute concerning the alleged three-man adhoc delegates list. He explained that the list has been updated in order to allow delegates to participate in the PDP primary scheduled for next Wednesday.

He, however, commended the PDP for organising an election of national delegates and one disabled person from 18 local government areas of the state.

He said: “The issue of the three-man delegates’ election has even resolved. There were some complaints and I am happy those complaints have been resolved. The July 22nd date for the PDP primaries in Ondo is still sacrosanct.

“You can see the delegate election was free and fair. It was well conducted and we are happy with the outcome. There was no violence. Nobody spotted any cheating.

“Part of our earlier problem was disunity in the party and there were some people who were disrupting the party issues and programme. I believed our people in the PDP in Ondo have learned their lessons.

“They are now ready to get power back in the state. I am happy efforts have been made to keep our party in shape. We made our progress as a party in the state after losing power four years ago. You can see the difference.

“In the last general election, we had two Senators out of three, which means we have two-third of the state under our control. That means the remaining part will come on board after the governorship election.”
