Ondo State deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, has congratulated the winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primary election in the state, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN).
In a statement issued in Akure on Thursday by his media officer, Allen Sowore, Ajayi, who scored 657 votes in the primary to come second, said he fought many forces in the PDP which he said was responsible for his loss.
In the statement titled, ‘We fought a good fight,’ the deputy governor, who recently defected from the All Progressives Congress, said he had accepted the defeat and moved on, noting that the members of the party had spoken and he had accepted the result in good faith.
He said: “The people have spoken, and we accept the outcome in good faith, knowing fully well that it was a race against different forces.
“We remain undaunted and resolute about our commitment to a people-oriented government against personalised democracy.
“We wish the good people of Ondo State and the winner the best as we march on. For us, life goes on.”
