8 Aspirants Battle For Ondo PDP 2024 Governorship Ticket (Full List)


A host of party stalwarts have expressed interest in running as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate for the 2024 governorship election in Ondo State.

Before a candidate can emerge, he or she has to overcome the hurdle of the PDP primaries fixed for April 15, in which a standard flagbearer would emerge.

Once the issue of a candidate is settled, the PDP can focus on strategies to unseat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 16 governorship election in Ondo State.
