PDP not divided over Jegede- Campaign Organisation

The Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation (EJCO), has put a lie to insinuations in a section of the media, that the emergence of Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) as the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the recently conducted governorship primary election is unpopular with some party leaders.
In a statement by the media research for the organisation, EJCO particularly described as ‘false, misleading’ and unsubstantiated, a statement credited to a group-Vanguard for Justice and Fairness in PDP, that the party is divided over the victory of Jegede at the primary election.
“While we value individuals’ right to their opinions, we feel compelled to raise the flag regarding an allegation by this group that “Jegede is seen by these unhappy (PDP) leaders as a follower of the ideology championed by former Vice President and PDP presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
“Though this group applauded the election of Jegede, describing him as the choice of the people of Ondo State, it neither identified the leaders that were unhappy with Jegede’s emergence nor stated the nature of Atiku’s ideology that Jegede would pursue.
“The group, as such, relied on these assumptions to declare that there is crisis in Ondo PDP, over Jegede’s emergence.
“But the truth of the matter is that, Jegede emerged as the party’s candidate, having won the highest number of votes cast in the primary.
“Even, all his fellow contestants congratulated him, describing the poll as free and fair; and immediately after his victory, Jegede went to the homes of these aspirants to assure them that it was a shared victory,” the EJCO explained.
