Ondo guber: 74 de-registered parties collapse structures for Aiyedatiwa

Ahead of the November 2024 governorship election in Ondo State, 74 political parties, under the aegis of Conference of De-Registered Political Parties in Nigeria (CDPPN), have collapsed their organizational structures for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The CDPPN is a composition of political parties that were de-registered by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

At a meeting with the governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, in Akure , the group, led by an APC stalwart, Prof. William Olu-Aderounmu, said the governor exhibits the necessary administrative and political qualities required to take the state to the next level of development.

Aderounmu cited the ongoing projects across the state as the reason the CDPPN came to declare support for the governor, whom he described as “cerebral, amiable and focused”
