Naija News reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had fixed October 10 for the Ondo Guber election.
Agboola Ajayi, a PDP governorship aspirant lost to Eyitayo Jegede who has been declared the PDP flagbearer for the election.
Speaking to newsmen at the National Secretariat of the APC, in Abuja, on Monday, Akeredolu described the exit of his deputy as good “riddance to bad rubbish”.
He said, “For me, the deputy leaving the APC to return to the PDP is good radiance to bad rubbish.
“We thought we could accommodate him at the APC but since he returned to where he truly belongs, it is all well and good. I always wish people the best I can.
“From what I have been told, he has lost the ticket and I pray he won’t jump to another place but if he does, all well and good.
“However, for his own sake and as a big brother, I will advise him to stay with Jegede, support him very well.
“He has made a case that he helped me to win, let him help him to win and we will confirm that he is popular. What I know is that he is of no importance, he has no hold on any local government. I can assure you that come during the election, I will defeat him in his local government and he will never recover from it.”
