The newly-elected Ondo
State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Hon. Fatai Adams has served the incumbent governor of the state, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, and his party, All Progressive Congress, (APC) a quit notice ahead of the October 10, governorship election in the state.
In his acceptance speech after defeating his only rival Hon. Dennis Alonge–Niyi during the party’s congress in Akure, the chairman said that the days of the Akeredolu led administration in the state are numbered.
Adams won the Tuesday election polling 1,343 votes to defeat the former state youth leader of the party Dennis Alonge-Niyi who scored 369 votes.
Akeredolu days as governor numbered, the New PDP state Chairman said while appreciating the delegates, Adams said the unification of the party will be pursued vigorously by the new executive. He promised that when the party wins the October 10 governorship election better and brightest days would return to the state and the people would enjoy the dividend of democracy to the fullest.
According to Adams “my vision and that of the new executives is to lead the Party’s governorship candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, to victory in October election. He expressed confidence in the ability of Jegede to deliver to the people of the dividend of democracy if elected.
“No doubt the task and focus of the new excos will be on the October 10 Ondo governorship election that is around the corner. We are going to win and send packing the Akeredolu led administration for non-performance.”
Adams appealed to the people of the state to be wise and vote rightly in the coming election so as to free themselves of political slavery.
