Ondo governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Eyitayo Jegede will name his running mate tomorrow.
Those tipped to likely emerge are: Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi; Gboluga Ikengboju Dele; Hon. Benson Amuwa; Mrs. Banke Solton and Banji Okunomo, all from Ondo South senatorial district.
Jegede hails from Ondo Central and Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu hails from Ondo North.
The choice of a running mate from Ondo South, supposed stronghold of the PDP, is to strengthen his chances of winning the election.
The pressure on Jegede over Ajayi was due to the ability of Ajayi to garner 657 votes despite defecting to the party one month to the primary.
But Jegede was said to have subtly rejected the choice of Ajayi.
Jegede, who spoke in a radio programme in Akure, said the choice of his running mate would be determined by all the stakeholders, including PDP leaders after due consultations.
Ajayi is yet to make official statement on his next political move but has congratulated Jegede after stating he would remain with the PDP.
