The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar has congratulated Chief Agboola Ajayi for his victory in the hotly contested primaries for the ticket of the party for the November 16, 2024 governorship election in Ondo State.

This is as the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has announced that it will present a Certificate of Return to Ajayi on Tuesday.
Atiku in a press statement signed by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, said the decision of the stakeholders of the PDP to elect Ajayi to fly the flag of the party was a wise decision for the PDP to win the election in Ondo State.

Atiku noted that Ajayi possesses the requisite experience and political exposure to take the PDP to victory in the November election.
“I have the utmost confidence in the candidature of Chief Agboola Ajayi to deliver Ondo State to the PDP,” the statement said.
The former vice president lauded the party stakeholders both at the national level and the leadership in Ondo State for having midwifed a non-controversial primary election.

“I must also express my appreciation to the national leadership of our party and the stakeholders in Ondo State for ensuring that the PDP stays and remains united during and after the process of the primary election.

“The unity will be much-needed when the party goes into the moment of full-scale electioneering.
“The unity in the PDP is our winning spirit. It is for this reason that I will urge every member of the PDP across the country to give undiluted loyalty and support to Agboola Ajayi in this all-important and historic election,” Atiku said.

Meanwhile, the NWC of the party has announced the date for the presentation of the Certificate of Return to Ajayi.
This was contained in a statement issued by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba.
He said the certificate presentation ceremony is scheduled to be held Tuesday, April 30, 2024, at PDP’s National Secretariat in Abuja.

Ologunagba said the national leadership of the PDP commended all leaders, critical stakeholders and members of the party in Ondo State for the successful conduct of the governorship primary election and charged them to continue to work together to ensure victory for the PDP candidate in the forthcoming election.
