The race for the Ondo state governorship election is hitting as the third biggest party in the state the African Democratic Congress announced Dapo Adelegan as the party flagbearer.
The Party’s Chairman on Electoral Matters, Anayo Arinze, described the party’s primary as peaceful while appreciating the four aspirants who all stepped down for Adelegan to carry the party’s flag at the forthcoming October 10 governorship election in the State.
This was contained in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Yemi Kolapo.
Arinze said, “Today, history is being made in Ondo State with the victory of Prince Dapo Adelegan. It is clear that from all we have seen here, ADC is going to emerge victorious in the forthcoming poll. The people are tired of the ruling party; they are also clearly tired of the Peoples Democratic Party.
“We are a credible alternative. And we are presenting one of their very best sons to lead the state out of its present state of socio-economic neglect. Surely, we shall come out victorious.”
The governorship candidate, who is from Owo, Ondo North Senatorial District, thanked party members and leaders for their support and assured the party of victory in the forthcoming poll, stressing that ADC would defeat the ruling party. Photo Credit: Getty
