Senator Ajayi Boroffice (APC-Ondo North) has revealed that the division in the state’s structure of the APC led to its defeat by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the elections.
PDP led the election over the ruling APC in National Assembly election according to the result released by INEC in the state.
PDP won 11 out of the 18 local governments in the state
Speaking to newsmen, Boroffice stated that the ruling party has a dysfunctional structure.
“APC lost Saturday election in Ondo State to PDP because APC has dysfunctional party structure in the state which is not effective,” he said.
“Then, we have a bipolar party which is one side AA and another is authentic APC.
“It is like the house divided against itself and that really affected the party in the election.“I have mixed feelings in the sense that we lost to PDP and it is unfortunate.
“However, the good side is that I won the election and three members of House of Representatives in my district and our presidential candidate also won.
“But the fact that we lost two senatorial seats to PDP is bad.”
Borofice also said that his victory in the poll was caused by people-oriented projects he executed in the senatorial district.
“I won because people are behind me and if you go there, you will see projects I did and brought there.
“People know that I am committed to their welfare and they decided to give their votes to me despite all odds,” he added.
