Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum has shown its support towards the party’s candidate for Ondo State governorship election, Eyitayo Jegede.
The governors say the “time” of Jegede, who lost to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress in 2016, “has come”.
The Forum Chairman made the declaration in a statement issued by the Director-General of the forum, C.I.D. Maduabum in Abuja on Sunday.
Tambuwal, while refuting reports that there was a division in the party, stressed that the PDP governors were united to ensure the election of Jegede.
He said, “We think that the story is the handwork of fifth columnists, who are afraid of the popularity of the PDP candidate and his likely victory, and have devised this means of creating doubts in the minds of Nigerians as a strategy for stopping the march of victory by PDP in Ondo.
“Nothing can stop the march of progress in Ondo. Indeed, Jegede’s victory is one whose time has come.
“The Forum speaks with one voice and this naked attempt to sow division and discord within its ranks has failed miserably.”
