Reacting to not making Agboola AjayI his running mate, Eyitayo Jegede said, “ The choice of a running mate was done by all the stakeholders in the party and as I told you, I met him and we had a private discussion in his house as I did with all other aspirants because we need everybody on board. It is going to require a lot of hands to remove this (APC) government. That is what we intend to do. Even, as we speak, we try to get the support of every person. I have even in one occasion asked Arakunrin Akeredolu to support my candidature, though he is in the APC, because he has some fine words for me as he calls me a gentleman, and that I’m a good person. I say he should demonstrate it by supporting us and the same thing I say to the deputy governor. We need a change; we need a fresh change –innovations in the Government House in respect of growing the economy of Ondo State and providing for the welfare of our people. And that is why I will continue to seek hands of the fellowship of stakeholders so that we can put into practice the great idea that we have for our state “.
