He spoke at the Ondo South Senatorial District PDP campaign held in Okitipupa town, in the Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.
Ajayi, who is the senatorial candidate of the PDP in the district, said the APC government had failed the nation, hence, the need to vote them out in next month’s general elections.
While addressing a crowd of party supporters at the rally, Ajayi expressed;
Our people are tired of the APC government, and we are not worried about the issue of vote buying because it won’t work at all in Ondo South Senatorial District. Our people are resolute and ready to vote out APC.
We all know that Ondo South is for PDP, our people are not going to compromise their integrity and rights and they are ready to vote for all PDP candidates in all elections.
We know the problem of our senatorial district; the major problem is electricity and God will use us to settle the issue. If we vote for the PDP, just give us six months, and we can assure you that electricity will be restored in all the affected areas.
The 132 KVA substation in Okitipupa, I was the one that brought it when I was the deputy governor but things have not been going on well since we left the government. But I want to assure you, the entire Ondo South Senatorial District people, that we will complete the work and make sure that there is electricity. We are going to Abuja to represent you well.
Also, speaking at the rally, a former national vice chairman (South-West) of the party, Dr Eddy Olafeso, said,
We are one single family, indivisible, united, we are moving ahead to win this election because the last seven and half years of of the APC government has been a very tragic experience for the people of Nigeria.
The Ondo South Senatorial District is known for PDP and we are going to prove it this time round. This is the beginning of victory for PDP in Ondo South, Ondo State, and Nigeria as a whole.
On his part, the PDP Ondo South Senatorial District Chairman, Mr John Mafo, said the mission of the party was to oust the APC government and rescue Nigerians from poverty.
He urged people of the senatorial district to vote massively for the party in the election.
However, the state chairman of the APC, Mr Ade Adetimehin, reiterated that all the party’s candidates would come out victorious in the elections. We are ready for the election.
We don’t have a crisis; we are not divided and we are beating all other candidates in the elections.
