The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the forthcoming November 16, 2024 governorship election, Hon. Agboola Ajayi has said that there is no question about his qualification and eligibility to serve as the next governor of Ondo state.

The former deputy governor who was reacting to a statement credited to a group known as Committee for Good Governance described the question raised on his eligibility by the group as baseless.

According to Agboola Ajayi in a statement issued by the Spokesperson of his Campaign Organization, Sam Ogunmusi,
the allegation by the “unknown” group is a mere distraction by some clowns.

The statement reads in parts: “The Agboola Campaign Group’s attention has just been drawn to a reckless and uninformed attempt by an obscure group to create unnecessary drama where there is no basis for one. Agboola Ajayi, irrespective of who may have been sulking, is the PDP candidate for the coming election and the next governor of our dear state by the grace of God.

“Those who decided to embark on the fruitless image bashing voyage should have realised before now that the PDP which maintains its standard as the most democratic institution in the country has a perfect screening apparatus that does not allow for the fielding of unqualified candidates for election.

“The self acclaimed good governance crusader should have taken proper briefing from its sponsors to know that someone who has been contesting elections at various levels successfully cannot at this point be distracted by a fake and unfounded allegation of certificate irregularity

“Agboola Ajayi registered that at this point, he is more focused on running a successful campaign ahead of the November election. He would not be distracted by the activities of some clowns”

Meanwhile, the PDP candidate reassured of a robust campaign even as he maintained that the PDP government will inject good and robust development into the state as it is ready to return the state to its glorious past.

He said: “We have done our home work, we have the experience and we can’t wait to deliver. We are sure of the people’s vote and with their cooperation, we shall all rescue the sinking ship of the state”
