The former Commissioner for Justice in Ondo State, during Ex-Governor Olusegun Mimiko's administration, Jegede Eyitayo Olayinka, has won the Governorship Primary Election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state. 

Announcing the result after the keenly contested primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, who was the Chairman of the Electoral Committee and Returning Officer, said that "the exercise was peaceful, free and fair, and was conducted in accordance with the guidelines of our Party, the PDP".

Gov. Ugwuanyi disclosed that Jegede scored 888 votes to defeat his closest rival, Ajayi Alfred Agboola, who scored 657 votes.

Gov. Ugwuanyi, who conducted the election with his colleague from Adamawa State, Rt. Hon. Adamu Umaru Fintiri and other members of the Electoral Committee, appreciated the aspirants and delegates for their comportment and commitment to the success of the exercise.

He therefore urged all the aspirants to close ranks and work for the victory of the PDP, in the forthcoming Governorship Election in Ondo State.

"By the powers conferred on me as the Chairman of the Electoral Committee and Returning Officer for this exercise, I announce that  Jegede Eyitayo Olayinka, having scored the highest votes cast and met all the requirements of our Party’s guidelines for the conduct of this election, is hereby declared winner of the PDP Governorship Primary Election in Ondo State, and is returned elected".
