The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo has dismissed the planned emergence of a third force in the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) ahead of the October 10 governorship election.
It said recent political history in the state showed that third force political parties always came third during elections.
This was contained in a statement issued by its Directorate of Media and Publicity, Leye Igbabo.
It begged its members not to follow Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi, to the ZLP.
The statement described the Third Force as” third spot” and urged its members not to follow Ajayi to the party.
It said Third Force always leads to third position in Ondo State.
The statement said third force has never worked and would never work in Ondo State politics.
“The contest has always been a straight fight between two leading parties at any particular time.
” In 2003, it was a straight fight between Chief Adebayo Adefarati of AD and Dr. Olusegun Agagu of PDP.
