Barely three weeks after the Ondo State governorship election, the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the election, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, has approached the election petition tribunal to challenge the results of the poll.
The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, as the winner of the election, having scored the highest number of total valid votes cast in the election.
According to INEC, Akeredolu defeated Jegede and the candidates of other political parties in the election.
Having studied the results of the election and not satisfied, the PDP candidate headed to the tribunal to challenge the results on Friday .
The state Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Kennedy Peretei, confirmed the development to journalists in Akure.
