Recall that the choice of the deputy governor picked by the party’s governorship candidate, Eyitayo Jegede had continued to polarise the party and deepened its crisis.
National and state leaders of the party have pleaded with Jegede to pick one of the aspirants that contested the primary with him but he ignored them.
He later picked a National Assembly member, Hon lkengboju Gboluga.
Many of the aspirants have since withdrawn their support and went to their shell after Jegede picked Gboluga as his running mate.
Several meetings called by the candidate were shunned by the aspirants to show their displeasure to happenings within the party. We can’t win October governorship election – PDP chieftain
