Posted by

No decision has been made on the zoning of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) governorship ticket in Ondo State ahead of the November election, according to a statement yesterday.
This was said by the PDP national leadership in light of Tuesday’s outcomes from a stakeholders meeting in Abuja between the National Working Committee and aspirants.

Several candidates informed the media after the meeting that they had agreed to allocate the party’s gubernatorial ticket to the southern division of the state.
In response, though, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, the PDP’s national press secretary, stated that the party has not allocated its ticket for the Ondo State governorship election on November 16, 2024, to any particular region inside the state.

In his statement, he made it clear that the National Working Committee (NWC) would ensure that all candidates for governor and party members in Ondo State would be treated fairly during the nomination process and all other events leading up to the 2024 election. This will be done in compliance with the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017), the Electoral Act of 2022, and the Party Guideline for the Election.

According to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) and the Party Guideline for the Election, the NWC further guarantees that the nomination process and all events leading up to the governorship election will be open, free, fair, and transparent.

To further promote unity and reconciliation among Party stakeholders in the state, the NWC approved the holding of a special meeting of party leaders. This meeting would be attended by top party leaders from Ondo State, Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde, Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke, and the NWC itself.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP has issued a statement urging all stakeholders to remain faithful to the party and collaborate for the benefit of the PDP, the people of Ondo State, and the state’s electorate, who are hoping the PDP will save them from the failed All Progressives Congress (APC) government. The NWC also reaffirms its charge to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to guarantee a free, fair, and credible governorship election in Ondo State on November 16, 2024.

He praised the state party leaders for being transparent and working hard to ensure the party’s stability and victory in the upcoming governorship race.
