Ondo 2020: PDP slogan fueling crisis – APC


The All Progressives Congress in Ondo State has said the campaign slogan of the People’s Democratic Party candidate, Eyitayo Jegede is fueling violence across the state.

According to the party “The PDP campaign slogan for Ondo 2020 is “Eyitayo must not fail” and it’s the source of pockets of violence experienced in the state.

APC State Publicity Secretary, Alex Kalejaye, in a statement said: “its a new version of the old “do-or-die” approach to election matters. “The APC has it on good authority that the PDP youths are easily moved to action once they hear the slogan.

I”t is an indication that the PDP candidate and leaders are very desperate for power.

“This seeming desperation in the camp of the PDP flag bearer induces the party thugs to go wild, and destroy anything in sight.

“So many innocent people have fallen victims, in the last one week, and vehicles destroyed because they display Akeredolu stickers.”

The party urged the leaders of PDP to further educate their followers to exhibit better conducts ahead of Saturday’s election.


Kalejaye was optimistic that the APC would emerge victorious in the gubernatorial election, “because all the active political actors in the State, from Prof. Ajayi Borroffice, Senator Tayo Alasoadura, to Chief Olusola Oke, are all committed to the reelection bid of Akeredolu.”

“Our concern is to ensure we record a credible process that will be a source of pride to the Sunshine State “, he added.
