Ondo 2020: Why I Didn't Pick Agboola Ajayi As Running Mate - Eyitayo Jegede by GIdiata(m): 3:20pm On Sep 23, 2020
Ajayi who defected from the ruling All Progressive Congress to the People Democratic Party contested the party’s primary but lost to Jegede.

Chieftains of the party within and outside the state
had impressed it on Jegede to consider Ajayi who came second in the primary after joining the party less than a month as his running mate.

But Jegede insisted he wanted a neutral person as
running mate and thereafter picked a member of the
House of Representatives, representing Okitipupa/Irele Federal Constituency, Hon Gboluga Ikengboju as his running mate.

Ajayi later defected to the Zenith Labour Party and picked the party’s ticket to contest for the October 10 governorship election.

Speaking for the first time openly on why he jettisoned all pleas to pick Ajayi as his running mate, Jegede while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, Jegede said Ajayi could not have been his running mate because the deputy governor’s ambition was to become a Governor.

Jegede also explained that Ajayi was part of the “failure” of the Akeredolu’s administration that PDP is campaigning against.

When asked why he didn’t team up with Ajayi for a sole ticket, Jegede replied, “Ajayi chose not to be my deputy. His ambition is to be a governor under a political party. He left the APC, came to PDP, defeated in our primary, and went to ZLP.

“I took opinions from virtually everybody. People chose who became my running mate. When a choice is made we must respect it. One should not allow his ambition to override the choice of the people.

“All the policies that we are fighting, the pains we want to end are the product of Akeredolu and his deputy.

“He was in our party (as a member) for just six weeks. He is a very powerful person and humble, you cannot do away with that.”

Speaking on the South West security outfit, codenamed Amotekun, Jegede promised to strengthen the operations of Amotekun in the State if elected.

According to him ” Amotekun will stay without political influence. We must protect our people. He also assured the people of the state that he would reduce the tuition of state-owned tertiary institutions.

Jegede however noted that “funding of the institutions won’t be an issue if am elected.”

That one who left a political party that begins with 'A', and joined the one that begins with 'P', before migrating all the way to a political party that begins with 'Z'. Nobody knows if his brain will suggest another party with Arabic letters to him if he doesn't get what he is looking for in ZLP. It's good u didn't pick someone who is a free agent and can sign for any political party at anytime. He is just power hungry.

Agboola Judas Ajayi Iscariot! "Speaking for the first time openly on why he jettisoned all pleas to pick Ajayi as his running mate, Jegede while featuring on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, Jegede said Ajayi could not have been his running mate because the deputy governor’s ambition was to become a Governor." Read Tayo Jegede's lips - he meant to say - "Agboola Judas Ajayi Iscariot is a serial betrayer who will betray me also because of his ambition to be Governor!" Until a snake deploys its powerful venom on its unsuspecting victim its sly ways signpost the self-effacing! Only the taken or one who pretends to be taken will not see that Agboola Judas Ajayi Iscariot parades false humility!
Agboola Judas Ajayi Iscariot signposts betrayal of the worst sought akin to the type Jesus suffered at the hands of Judas Iscariot!! In the final analysis his unrepentant stance earned him shame, disgrace, homelessness and suicidal tendencies to which he succumbed in a manner most despicable! Watch his end - Omoboriowo of yore who travelled the same route as Agboola Judas Ajayi Iscariot is a study in what a man wouldn't want to become in life!

“Ajayi chose not to be my deputy. His ambition is to be a governor under a political party. He left the APC, came to PDP, defeated in our primary, and went to ZLP.

PDP and ZLP are fighting over who will be the runner up.

The fight for 2nd position between the PDP and the ZLP is even more brutal than the second world war.

Anyway, congrats in advance to Governor Akeredolu.

Silver and Gold I have not. What I have, I have given.

This is wise decision. Because if Jegede wins, the guy will still be scheming to be Governor and it would be disunity in the government.

Eyitayo means Sufficient Joy
jedege is an oruko abiso. A title given to someone of great influence/character/personality. It is often synonymous with a big tree. Hence, d popular phrase among fuji musicians, "Igi Jegede"; used to describe a person you can always lean/depend on.

Of course bro...

If na you, will you accept him?

More over... Choosing a deputy goes beyond that... There is a lot of stakes, so as to ensure the needed votes are gotten from the people.
