This announcement comes after the PDP candidate had earlier submitted the name of one of his aides, Sam Ogunmusi, as a placeholder to meet the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) deadline. However, Ogunmusi’s name will now be replaced with Akingbaso before the June 18th deadline.


Akingbaso is a former member of the Ondo State House of Assembly and hails from Idanre, in the state’s Central Senatorial District.


The PDP candidate, Agboola Ajayi, is looking to unseat the incumbent governor, Aiyedatiwa of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming election. The choice of Akingbaso as his running mate is seen as a strategic move to bolster the party’s chances in the election.


With the addition of the experienced lawmaker to the ticket, the PDP is hoping to gain more traction and support from the people of Ondo state as they make their final preparations for the governorship poll.
