Gov. Ugwuanyi, who conducted the election with his colleague from Adamawa State, Rt. Hon. Adamu Umaru Fintiri and other members of the Electoral Committee, appreciated the aspirants and delegates for their comportment and commitment to the success of the exercise.

He therefore urged all the aspirants to close ranks and work for the victory of the PDP, in the forthcoming Governorship Election in Ondo State.

“By the powers conferred on me as the Chairman of the Electoral Committee and Returning Officer for this exercise, I announce that Jegede Eyitayo Olayinka, having scored the highest votes cast and met all the requirements of our Party’s guidelines for the conduct of this election, is hereby declared winner of the PDP Governorship Primary Election in Ondo State, and is returned elected”, he said.
