The die is cast and the Ondo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party is set to conduct its primary to elect a standard bearer for the October 10 governorship election.
Already, the Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has emerged as the All Progressives Congress candidate.
About “2,111 delegates” from the 18 local government areas of the state would converge on the International Event Centre, Akure, to choose one out of the eight aspirants to contest against Akeredolu.
