Speaking on the alleged division in the party, Tambuwal dismissed that the PDP governors were united to ensure the election of Jegede.
He said, “We think that the story is the handwork of fifth columnists, who are afraid of the popularity of the PDP candidate and his likely victory, and have devised this means of creating doubts in the minds of Nigerians as a strategy for stopping the march of victory by PDP in Ondo.
“Nothing can stop the march of progress in Ondo. Indeed, Jegede’s victory is one whose time has come.
