A former publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party ,PDP in southwest, Ayo Fadaka has revealed how the governorship candidate of the party in Ondo state ,Eyitayo Jegede refused to pick his calls in the build up to the 2020 governorship election.
Fadaka was reacting to allegations of anti–party activities levelled against him and four others after the Ondo governorship election which APC candidate ,Oluwarotimi Akeredolu won.
The PDP in Ondo State later suspended five of its members for alleged anti-party activities.
The action of the party was also linked with the agitations for offices in the forthcoming South-west zonal congress of the party.
