Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Ondo State, Jimoh Ibrahim, yesterday spoke on his chances of winning the election.
He told newsmen in Akure that he would take away injustice, “because we cannot afford to have a senatorial district producing governors for 16 years at a-go.”
Asked why he is not going round to campaign ahead of the election, he said: “This is not my first time of running for the governorship of the state. In 2003, I ran for the governorship of the state under ANPP.
“So, politics is not new and I’m not like those people who are running for the first time, only to do all the work by moving to all the nooks and crannies of Ondo state. I am not new to the people of Ondo State.
“I ran before and I have very impressive result at the last engagement when I ran for the governorship of this state. It’s my ambition to become the governor of this state and I’m back to realise that ambition.’’
On the ambition of Eyitayo Jegede, who is in court over the party’s ticket, Ibrahim responded: “Jegede is brand new in the system, he’s new and let him take his time, it took me from 2008 to the present date to enjoy this political legitimacy.”
“You cannot come just in one day and begin to think you can win election like that in Ondo State. Nobody comes and enters like that. Take your time and queue behind.”
