Babajide made a Stunning Revelation about the Forthcoming Governorship Election in Ondo State
Babajide Kolade otitoju a veteran journalist, while speaking on the popular program “Journalist Hangout” on TVC news Friday September 25, made a stunning revelation about the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo state, says it is now even difficult to predict the election considering what happened in the last Edo Governorship election.
Babajide while speaking said ” I feel it is now becoming difficult to even predict an election in Nigeria, considering how the APC governors are working against their own party. I don’t know why it is so easy for people to label me APC journalist, despite the fact that I predicted many elections in favour of PDP, states like sokoto, Adamawa, Bauchi etc.
Governor Akeredolu will enjoy the incumbency power, so he still has a better chance, and for Eyitayo Jegede he has been doing very well to party members even outside government. So it will be a serious fight between them, again in APC it is dangerous to stick your neck out for them. Then another factor is how people are being treated because many things are going wrong right now in the country. It is easy for the people to vote against the present government considering the economic hardship.
The Ondo election is in a matter of days now, and I can’t say which direction the pendulum will swing, because of so many backdoors meeting that will happen 48hours to election. It will shock people to know that so many APC governors worked against their own party in Edo election just because of Adams Oshiomole.
According to report from Ekiti government House, they said members of the APC were seeing jubilating in respect of Obaseki’s victory. So for me I can say the PDP right now is now becoming stronger, because of the disunity in the APC. How do you expect a party to win when most of party chieftain are working in favour of the opposition party.
For me Ondo election will be a tight race, and we should expect surprises just like the way it turned out in Edo state election.
What do you make of Babajide’s opinion as regards Ondo election ?
