The Independent National Electoral Commission has named JIMOH IBRAHIM as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State.
The commission also named ALABI EBENEZER OMOTAYO as his running mate.
The action of the commission sent the camp of the factional National Chairman of the party, Senator MODU SHERIFF, into wild jubilation.
With this announcement, EYITAYO JEGEDE has ceased from being the official candidate of the PDP.
JEGEDE is the choice of another faction of the party under the leadership of Senator AHMED MAKARFI.
Until the commission released the final list of all the candidates that would contest the election, on Thursday evening, the name of JEGEDE was put on its website as the candidate of the PDP.
In a letter sent to the Ondo state Resident Electoral Commissioner, SEGUN AGBAJE, the commission described the list as final.
