Agboola Ajayi, the winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial primary poll in Ondo,  has described his election as a ”victory for democracy”.

Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, the deputy governor of Bayelsa, who chaired the electoral committee that supervised the poll, announced Ajayi as the winner of the election in Akure, the state capital, on Thursday.

Ewhrudjakpo said Ajayi scored 264 votes to defeat other aspirants.

In his acceptance speech after winning the party’s ticket, Ajayi said the election was transparent, free, fair and devoid of rancour.

The former deputy governor of Ondo commended the electoral committee for being objective in the process.

He commended other aspirants in the election and urged them to join hands with him to rescue the state from the misgovernance of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“There is no victor, no vanquished in the election and I solicit your support to ensure that our party returns to power in the November governorship election. Let’s join hands together, speak with one voice and work towards reclaiming Ondo for PDP.

“I thank you for the process and let me also commend the national leaders of our party for putting in place a transparent process to get to this level, that is the difference between the PDP and other political parties in Nigeria and Africa.

“But let me say this to all our party leaders No victor, no vanquished, all of us are winners and it’s a victory for democracy.

“I’ll try my best, I’ll do everything to see that every aggrieved member is reconciled so that we can push for the victory together,” Ajayi said.
