Jegede, who is trying to challenge the Ondo State governorship political decision on the PDP stage, portrayed the APC as a sinking ship.
Talking through a previous Commissioner for Environment, Chief Lebi Adepiti, in an announcement on Sunday, Jegede pledged to unseat Governor Rotimi Akeredolu through the poll.
“The APC’s days are numbered not only in Ondo State but also all over the country. The crises that have engulfed the APC are ominous signs that things have fallen apart within it. Everyone can see that they are no longer at ease.
A fish rots from its head. The APC is crisis-ridden from the very top. They no longer know where their ship is sailing. A party that cannot govern itself cannot govern anyone else,” he said.
Jegede said the PDP’s entryways were available to turncoats, including Akeredolu’s delegate, Mr Agboola Ajayi, who simply left the APC.
He stated, “We are democrats in the PDP and the sky is wide enough for us all. No burden and no fascism. A government official’s prevalence must be his advantage.”
