Victory will lead to restructuring, say Secondus, others

However, speaking at the campaign flag-off yesterday, Secondus urged voters in Ondo State to support the PDP, saying their votes would lead to change and restructuring of the country.

He said Jegede, if elected, would bring about the desired change, and called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that he bequeathed a legacy of free and fair election to the nation.

He said: “The only thing left for Nigeria is for Buhari to conduct free and fair election, because the economy has collapsed, security has collapsed and they are swimming in corruption.

“Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gun powder, waiting to explode. The only way out is for Buhari to conduct free and fair elections in Edo and Ondo states so that Nigeria can remember him.”

Also addressing the rally, Governor Makinde faulted the APC for asking the people to vote for the party to ensure that the Southwest gets the Presidency in 2023.

Makinde said: “They are saying you should vote for them because they want Presidency to come to Yoruba land. This election is not about presidency to Yoruba land. This election is about delivering Eyitayo Jegede and putting Ondo State among the states that will lead the charge to restructure Nigeria.

“This election is about you choosing between continuous servitude and freedom. We want freedom for the entire Southwest. It has started from Oyo State, it will continue in Ondo State on 10/10/2020. Will you rather stay with a candle when you have the sun? Ondo State is the sunshine state.

“They have been lighting candle for you, so it is time to let the sun shine again. So, you will come out, cast your votes and stay with your votes. Your votes will not only count, it will be counted and it will liberate Ondo State”.

Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, who also addressed the party faithful, said that the Ondo election was the commencement of work in progress by the PDP, for the restructuring of Nigeria.

The governor knocked the APC administration for bringing untold hardship to the people with increased fuel and electricity charges at a time Nigerians were still struggling with the crippling effects of the COVID-19 lockdown.

He said: “Now the other party, the APC is in disarray, not only in Ondo State where they are busy fighting but also at the national level where they unlawfully, against their own constitution, dissolved their own national working committee.

“Are they not a party of confusion? Are they capable of governing Nigeria? As at now, they do not have a board of trustees for their party. Since the inception of APC till today, they have not been able to get a board of trustees for their party. Is that not enough confusion? That is why I confirm to you that APC is not the choice for Ondo State.

“They said that they are going to fight corruption, you all know the situation in Nigeria today. They said they are going to ensure the security of Nigerians, are we secured now? Are we secured at all?

“What about the economy? At this time of COVID-19, they have increased the suffering of Nigerians. Instead of giving us palliatives, they are adding to the suffering by increasing fuel prices, by increasing electricity tariff. The timing is very wrong”.

Addressing the people, Jegede promised to change what he described as the pathetic situation in the state by providing employment opportunities for the youth and addressing infrastructural decay.
