Peoples Democratic Party, on Monday, extended the deadline for the sale of its Expression of Interest and Nomination forms for the Ondo State governorship election.
The party had earlier fixed June 22 as the deadline for the purchase of the forms. But with the extension, aspirants now have up to June 24 to obtain their forms.
PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, did not give any reason for the extension.
It was, however, gathered that the extension was to give room for the Ondo State Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, who defected from the APC to the PDP to also obtain his forms for the race.
Ajayi defected to the PDP on Sunday, following the perennial disagreement between him and his boss, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, over his ambition to contest the October 10, 2020 governorship election in the state.
But the PDP in the statement said, “All other time frames related the nomination processes for the Ondo state governorship election remain as earlier announced
“All leaders, governorship aspirants, critical stakeholders and members of our great party in Ondo State should be guided accordingly.”
