Other leaders at the meeting include Mr Oladipupo Ajani, Elder Dele Olatunji, Eni Akinsola, Prof Francis Igbasan and Alhaji Ismaila Olurimisi.

The leaders said: “It is unfortunate that the APC picked Akeredolu and the PDP chose Jegede, leaving the south with a third force.

“Since the major parties have decided against the South, we are left to take destiny in our hands. We are aware of the marginalisation of Ondo South senatorial district

“The district produces the bulk of the revenue for the state yet, it remains underdeveloped. The North has produced Adefarati for four years, Akeredolu for another four years.

“Mimiko has spent eight years of the central bringing development to Akure, the state capital and other parts of the district.

“However, Agagu spent only 4 years leaving a balance of four years for the zone.

“The South must produce the next governor and we have unanimously endorsed Agboola Ajayi as the candidate of the South for the October 10, 2020 election.

“The south has the economic power, competence and demographic to produce the next governor of the state and we will use it for Ajayi.

“We chose Ajayi because he is bold and did not chicken out when being faced with impeachment. We need somebody who will not sell the zone and that is why we zeroed on him.”

Meanwhile, the defection of Mr Ajayi has been shifted till next week.

Vanguard gathered that it was agreed that the movement should be done elaborately to register the party in the minds of the people of the state.
