The Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation has raised the alarm over movement of suspected hoodlums to Ondo state from neighbouring Ekiti state .
In a press statement released in Akure on Thursday and signed by the team’s Spokesperson, Gbenga Akinmoyo, vehicles are currently being loaded into commercial vehicles from Ado Ekiti motor parks to convey the hoodlums to Ondo state.
The campaign team appealed to Security agencies to be vigilant and monitor vehicular movements into Ondo State.
”This same activity had been happening with influxes from Kogi State and our organization has given incessant notices on this.
”Let the security agencies be on top of their game please. Whilst drawing this nefarious act to the attention of INEC and law enforcement agents, we advise and insist that all vehicles coming into the state should be stopped and thoroughly searched to confirm their occupants are not being brought here to disrupt the elections”.
In another development, the campaign team says in a desperate move to deceive the general public some dubious individuals are circulating falsehood that the PDP candidate Eyitayo Jegede SAN has collapsed structure.
This this team described as a lie from the pit of hell, created and existing in the imagination of day dreamers and enemies of Ondo State.
”In the last 72 hours, Eyitayo Jegede has received support from 11 out of the 16 other governorship candidates who collapsed their structures for him and the PDP. He has signed the Peace Accord confirming commitment to a violence-free election.
”Jegede has meticulously worked to complete his campaign tour across the length and breadth of Ondo State and just yesterday held the Closing Rally in an elaborate and colourful ceremony at Ondo West local government where thousands of supporters joined him to receive the PDP national officers from Abuja led by the National Chairman Uche Secondus, several PDP governors and former governors led by the Chairman of PDP Governor’s Forum, His Excellency Aminu Tambuwal in the presence of a long list of party chieftains and stalwarts from all over Nigeria.
The team said further that, despite the extremely tight campaign schedule, Jegede has also honoured the invitations of the organisers of the two Live Governorship Debates which he attended in person to answer questions and address the electorate on his Manifesto and a plea to the relevant authorities for the need to enjoy a free, fair, transparent and credible election, adding that some candidates were conspicuously absent from both debates even though they had already completed their mish-mash campaigns.
According to the campaign team, Eyitayo Jegede is not only in the race, he remains the candidate to beat.
