AKURE — LEADERS of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Idanre and Ifedore local government areas of Ondo State, yesterday, adopted a former Commissioner for Information in the state, Mr. Kayode Akinmade, as the House of Representatives candidate for the February 2019 election in the constituency.
Speaking with newsmen after a meeting, the leader of the party in Ifedore and former Accountant General of the State, Mr. Lawrence Ibukun, said Akinmade has all it takes to give quality representation to the people of the federal constituency.
Leaders in Idanre, where Akinmade hails from, had earlier adopted him as their candidate for the election.
Ibukun noted the aspirant’s experience as a former Special Adviser on Media to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and two-time Commissioner for Information in Ondo State would assist him to bring quality development to the area.
He said that the party decided to toe the line of bringing forth a sole candidate in the federal constituency in order to checkmate people who did not have good intentions for the constituency.
Earlier, Akinmade promised to provide quality representation and ensure equity and fairness in the distribution of federal projects in the constituency.
Akinmade said the era of marginalizing Idanre/Ifedore in the National Assembly is gone for good.
