The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) has said that he would soon make his next line of action known on the election results which produced APC’s candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu as governor-elect.
Jegede, who lost the election to a former President of the Nigeria Bar Association, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu spoke with journalists in Akure, the state capital on Sunday after a thanksgiving service for the peaceful conduct of the poll.
He said, “I should thank our people for their steadfast. We are studying the situation and very soon you will know my position and that of my party.
“You all know the event that led to the election; we were in court, I got judgment 48 hours to the election, our request for postponement was turned down for the reason not known to us,” he said.
The immediate former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in the state neither commended nor condemned the conduct of the poll but insisted that his reaction on the election will soon be made public.
Corroborating Jegede, the state Chairman of the PDP, Mr. Clement Faboyede disclosed that the party would meet on Monday (today) to decide its position over the outcome of the election.
