Akoko bye-election: PDP announces Olalekan Bada as consensus Candidate

By: Adeboye Ado

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has endorsed a former Local Government Chairman of Akoko North East Local Government Area of Ondo State, Hon. Olalekan Bada, as the consensus Candidate of the party.

Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, the State Publicity Secretary of PDP, in a statement on Sunday, said the “party unanimously approved a 20-man committee set up at Akoko North East/ Akoko North West Federal Constituency to nominate a consensus candidate for the purposes of the forthcoming bye-election.”

“At a joint meeting of the SWC and six of the aspirants who earlier indicated interest to participate in the bye-election, it was resolved that the 20-man committee report which rated Olalekan Bada as number one should be sponsored by the party for the bye-election that comes up in February, 2023.”

“Our party believes that, we should profit from our own experience in which the nomination process to replace Hon Omolafe Adedayo (aka Expensive) ended in a rancorous primary election that badly fragmented our party in Akure North/ Akure South.”

“Party leaders in Akoko North East/Akoko North West Federal Constituency should rally support for the party candidate and ensure that our party becomes victorious in the bye-election.”
