The main governorship election will take place on October 10, according to the timetable released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

If he wins the APC’s ticket, Akeredolu’s potential opponent could be his current deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, who recently dumped the APC for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to enable him contest for the governor’s seat.

Attempts by the Ondo House of Assembly to impeach Ajayi for alleged gross misconduct, following his defection, recently hit a brick wall when the state’s chief judge, Oluwatoyin Akeredolu (SAN), rejected a request to set up an investigative panel to investigate the allegations.
