The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has named Governor Seyi Makinde as the Chairman of a 145-man national campaign team for the Ondo guber election, coming up later this year.
The party in a press statement said the campaign council will be inaugurated on Friday, August 28, at the party’s national secretariat (Wadata Plaza) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja via zoom due to the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Notabe members of the council are Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state, Governor Benedict Ayade of Cross River, and Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa state. The council will commence work with immediate effect.
Other members of the council are Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo, Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba, Govenor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state and a host of top chieftains/functionaries of the party.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has scheduled October 10, 2020 for the gubernatorial election in the state.
PDP’s candidate Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) will hopefully gives All Progressives Congress (APC) a tough run this time.
