The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council for Ondo Governorship Election, has condemned the attack on its candidate, Eyitayo Jegede in Oba- Akoko on Wednesday.
Addressing a press Conference in Abuja,the Chairman, Publicity Sub-Committee of the Council, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said the attack was because the opposition was agitated by Eyitayo Jegede’s soaring rating as well as the warm reception he had been receiving from leaders and groups across the state.
“Our campaign appreciates the courage displayed by the people of Ondo state in resisting the assailants and defending our candidate.”
“Indeed, but for the intervention of the good people of Ondo state, who immediately came out to defend our candidate, the situation would have been worse.”
We also appreciate well-meaning All Progressives Party (APC) members who had called our candidate and our campaign to condemn the attack and show solidarity to our candidate,” Ologbodiyan said.
He advised the opposition to play by the rules.
“On our own part, our candidate, who is the people’s candidate, will remain undeterred in our focus to provide good governance for the people of Ondo state.
