Member representing Okitipupa/Irele federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Mike Omogbehin has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has developed a strategy to humiliate the ruling All ProgressivesCongress (APC) in Ondo gubernatorial election slated for Saturday.
In an exclusive interview with DAILY POST in Abuja, the lawmaker noted that the APC at a point saw defeat staring at them decided to use those he described as ‘disgruntled elements’ within PDP to hijack the resolution of Ondo electorates in the elections.
“There is no doubt that our strategy to win Ondo electionhas been impeded. There is no doubt that our time and strategy has been wasted by some disgruntled elements in PDP who have been supplanted by the APC”, Omogbehin stated.
He was optimistic that the appeal court would restore the name of Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, emphasizing that at any given time, PDP will win the election.
The lawmaker pointed that Mr Jegede passed through a process that legitimised him as the flag bearer of the party primary, while describing Jimoh Ibrahim as a product of black market judgement.
“What is required of INEC is to restore the name of Eyitayo Jegede as the true candidate of PDP in Ondo election, because he was the one whose primary was monitored by INEC, before Jimoh Ibrahim made Justice Abang to give a black market judgement rejecting our candidate”, he said.
He added that those extraneous forces creating confusion in Ondo gubernatorial election, have serious internal rancour that would disintegrate them moments from now.
