ONDO: Akeredolu hails Jegede, knocks Ajayi


Ondo State Governor , Rotimi Akeredolu , has described the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede ( SAN) , as a worthy opponent in the October 10 governorship election .

He , however , dismissed the deputy governor and candidate of the Zenith Labour Party, Agboola Ajayi , as inconsequential .

Akeredolu said this during a programme on Arise TV, in Akure , the state capital, on Monday .

Akeredolu said , “ Eyitayo Jegede is my colleague ; he is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria ; he is worthy of the office ; I cannot see anything wrong with him . He is somebody I have a lot of respect for . He is eminently qualified to be a governor , unlike some people , who are not qualified to be a governor of this state.

“ But Agboola Ajayi of the ZLP , what has he got to offer this state? Nothing! But when it comes to Jegede , not because he is a SAN, but because he is learned ; this state is not for a neophyte and a nincompoop . For me, Tayo ( Jegede ) is a gentleman and is good. I have nothing against him whatever happens at the end of the day , we will remain friends . ”

In response, the media aide to the deputy governor , Allen Sowore, said , “ Again, Akeredolu ’ s macabre dance of shame on a national television on Monday , where he called his deputy a neophyte and nincompoop , and other unprintable names vindicates the deputy governor ’ s assessment of the governor as a man without character. ”
