There was mild drama as all the candidates for the 2020 Ondo governorship election, on Tuesday, signed a peace accord to ensure a violence-free poll.

The Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu of All Progressives Congress (APC), Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) candidate and deputy governor of the state, Agboola Ajayi, along with the candidates of other parties were present at the event.

However, the drama started at the end of the event, as Akeredolu refused to shake hands with his deputy, Ajayi.

The three major candidates were asked to embrace, shake hands or bump elbows with one another as a sign that they had embraced peace.
