Daily Post reports that Senator Nicholas Tofowomo representing Ondo South senatorial district has advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to pick its governorship candidate from the district.
The lawmaker says this will ensure that the PDP defeats the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was contained in a statement on Tuesday by his spokesman, Olumide Akinrinlola.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had fixed October 10, 2020, for the election.
Tofowomo noted that currently, only two of all the party’s aspirants were from Ondo South.
He pointed out that the PDP had huge votes during the 2019 elections compared to other senatorial districts.
“To wrestle power from the incumbent is not an easy task, the more reason the PDP leaders need to be careful in deciding who becomes its candidate and from which zone to have the desired result.
”Right now, we have two formidable aspirants in Ondo South who are also viable, credible and experienced from Okitipupa and Ilaje LGA, respectively, and already equipped and have what it takes to dislodge power from APC”, Tofowomo said.
The local government areas in Ondo South are Odigbo, Okitipupa, Ilaje, Irele, Ese-Odo and Ile-Oluji/Oke-Igbo.
