Eleven out of the 17 political parties running for the governorship election in Ondo State have resolved to support the candidate of People’s Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede in the election.

The Chairman of Social Democratic Party(SDP), Ondo State Chapter, Prince Oladele Ogunbameru said this while addressing a press conference on behalf of the 11 parties in Akure, the state capital.

Ogunbameru announced that the decision of the parties to collapse their structures for the PDP was made at a meeting held on October 4 with the party leaders and the PDP leaders as well.

He said the parties believe the good governance the people are looking for can only be offered by the PDP.

The SDP Chairman said the collaboration is an organized effort to save the state from what he described as the political quagmire and undesirable socioeconomic predicament of the masses.

Ondo State PDP Chairman, Honourable Fatai Adams said the support from the 11 political parties indicates the acceptability of Eyitayo Jegede, which shows that the party is winning the election.

The 11 political parties that adopted the PDP candidate include Accord, AA, ADP, AAC, APGA, and APM. Others are: APP, NNPP, NRM, SDP and the YPP.
