‘’In Imo, I am saying it again that only a strong coalition can defeat Governor Hope Uzodinma. PDP isn’t in this governorship race, they can’t make any impact. The opposition parties should come together if they want to defeat the incumbent governor.’’
For the Edo election which will is billed for 2024, Primate Ayodele advised the PDP to nominate the deputy governor, Philip Shaibu as its candidate.
‘’I advise the PDP to nominate the deputy governor, Phillip Shaibu as its candidate for the Edo governorship election in 2024. The election will not be an easy one for them, the party needs a formidable candidate.’’
Speaking on the recently concluded governorship elections in Kaduna and Enugu, Primate Ayodele advised the winners not to celebrate yet because he foresees the court ruling out their victory.
‘’In Kaduna and Enugu, the candidates of the APC and PDP that were declared as winners shouldn’t celebrate yet. The battle isn’t over as I foresee the court ruling out their victory. I still see the victory in Kaduna going back to the PDP candidate, Ashiru Kudan while Labour Party candidate, Chijioke Edeoga will reclaim victory in Enugu,’’ he stated.
Furthermore, Primate Ayodele urged the candidate of the NNPP in Taraba, Sani Yahaya not to drag the election outcome in the state to court because God has sealed the victory of PDP’s Agbu Kefas.
‘’The candidate of the NNPP in Taraba, Sani Yahaya should not bother going to court. God has sealed the victory of PDP’s Agbu Kefas. It will be a mere waste of money and time for him. He should work together with the winner in order to move the state forward.’’
