News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ajipe ran for the Ondo Norte senatorial seat and came second in the primary, while Pastor Jide Ipinsagba came first in the election.
Meanwhile, Ajipe challenged the election all the way to the Supreme Court, adding that although his question in court was not answered, that would not make him leave the party.
According to him, after the Supreme Court decision on our case, “there are many hints on social media that Ajipe wanted to go to the PDP next week.
“To make things clear, on the line when we were in court, they appointed me the Southwest Zonal Director of the Social and Humanitarian Directorate of the PCC.
“So, I think it is a position of recognition and responsibility for the party. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinunu is someone I love personally because we have something in common which is the development of human capital.
“So, for the moment, I want to say that I am still in my party, I am still director of the humanitarian social directorate of the PCC of APC.
“I am going to campaign for all those who are today candidates of the party recognized by the INEC. In terms of the Northern Senate District where Pastor Jide Ipinsagba is a candidate, I will campaign for him to win.
“In fact, we have started to rename some of our campaign vehicles to reflect the images of Asiwaju, Ipinsagba and others.
“We have already renamed and donated six vehicles and three more to be donated soon with full photo of our APC presidential candidate, senatorial candidate among others,” he said.
Ajipe, who said he did not hold a grudge against Ipinsagba or anyone else for not supporting him in the primaries or in court, called on his many supporters to work for APC’s victory in Ondo and the southwest in general.
According to him, I want to tell all my supporters both outside and inside Ondo State that I am still in APC and will work for all APC candidates.
“I will campaign for Tinubu/Shetima to win the entire South West in the next general election and I will work for Jide Ipinsagba and others to win as well.
“I will work for our party and I will stay in the party. Because no matter what, a landlord won’t leave his house for a tenant, so I believe in the majority and I believe in time and Almighty God.
“I beg my supporters and people in the party who are aggrieved by the conduct of the primary or the way the case was handled, to know that there is no place like home and that APC is our home.” he said.
