The factional candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the election, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), has reassured his supporters across the state that he will contest and win the election after getting justice from the appellate court.

Jegede who is challenging the judgment of the High Court which ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to replace his name with that of Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the PDP for the November 26 governorship poll, told his  his supporters in Akure not to despair but continue with their house-to-house campaign effort aimed at ensuring that the PDP emerges victorious in the forthcoming governorship election.

He said, “ Mark my words, we will contest and win this election. Let me tell you, this is not about Eyitayo Jegede alone, it is about the people of Ondo State, this is about good governance in our state, this is about continuation and improvement on the good things we have been  enjoying in our state.

“I’m in this business to reclaim my mandate and I’m serious about it.”

The legal luminary however refuted the insinuation that most of his supporters had moved to the opposition parties because they doubted his chances of getting justice from the appeal court.

Meanwhile, Jegede’s appeal is still pending at the Abuja Court of Appeal which has adjourned its sitting on the case indefinitely.
