Ahead of the governorship election in Ondo State today, NigerianEye will be making some predictions based on the perceived strongholds of the main contestants today, (PDP, APC, SDP and AD)
The APC is adjudged to be strong in some local government areas like Owo, where Akeredolu hails from; Odigbo; Akoko South-East; Akoko South-West; Akoko North-East; and Akoko North-West.
Owing to the agitation that the governorship position should be shifted to the Ondo South Senatorial District of the state, which has six local government areas (Ile-Oluji/Oke-Igbo, Odigbo, Okitipupa, Irele, Ilaje and Ese-Odo), the people of the senatorial district are expected to give massive votes to the candidate of the AD, Oke, who is from Ilaje Local Government Area.
It is also believed in some quarters that the SDP candidate, Agunloye, might gain the upper hand in the four local governments in Akokoland, where he hails from.
In some quarters, there has been growing clamour that someone from Akoko should be the next governor of the state.
Jegede, an indigene of Akure in Akure South Local Government Area of the state, could sweep the votes in the six local government areas of the Central Senatorial District of the state, which include, Akure South, Akure North, Ifedore, Ondo South and Ondo West.
The six local governments in the Central Senatorial District are believed to be the stronghold of the PDP candidate through the influence of the governor and the party chairman in the state, Clement Faboyede, coupled with the fact that none of the other prominent parties picked any candidate and deputy candidate from the area.
