Eyitayo Jegede, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo State, has met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in the state made this known on Saturday on Twitter.
Jegede stated that he met with the former Nigeria president to seek his support ahead of the Ondo governorship election.
“Seeking support of the elders, the next 63 days will no doubt be decisive, we will succeed. God our help!” Jegede captioned a photo of himself with the Hilltop man and one other person.
Naija News reports that Eiytayo Jegede had polled 888 votes, while the deputy governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi, polled 657 votes; and the PDP National Vice Chairman, Eddy Olafeso, came third with 175 votes.
The election was keenly contested among the eight aspirants, and no fewer than 2,122, delegates from the 18 local government areas of the state participated in the election.
Jegede would face Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in the October 10 gubernatorial election.
