Deputy Governor of Ondo state, Agboola Ajayi has expressed appreciation to his supporters, urging them to remain loyal to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ajayi, who polled 657 votes to come second behind Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) with 888 votes, said he has proved that “he is a grassroots politician by polling 657 votes, coming second in a contest amongst seven other Aspirants, barely thirty days after rejoining the PDP.”
He made this known in a statement issued on Friday, by Dr Kola Ademujimi,director general of Agboola Alfred Ajayi Campaign Organisation ( 3ACO).
“On behalf of His Excellency, Hon Alfred Agboola Ajayi, Deputy Governor of Ondo State, we wish to thank all our supporters across the eighteen Local Government Areas of the State for an uncommon doggedness, commitment and excellent outing at the PDP Governorship Primaries on Wednesday, 22nd July, 2020.
“We also wish to appreciate and Commend our Principal, His Excellency, Agboola Ajayi for displaying maturity level headedness on the face of provocation and campaign of calumny. He proved that he is a grassroots politician by polling 657 votes, coming second in a contest amongst seven other Aspirants, barely thirty days after rejoining the PDP. This is why commendations kept pouring in from the State and even from outside the State. It was a great performance, a great day for him and democracy.
“We are equally using this medium to state unequivocally that, PDP remains our party and we therefore want all our supporters to remain loyal to the Party as we work towards the way forward.
“Once again, we thank all of you for your high sense of commitment and loyalty,” the statement read.
