Jegede spoke at a reception organised for him by PDP supporters in Akure, the state capital, after returning from Abuja.
The former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice had been in Abuja with his legal team battling to resolve the replacement of his name by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with Jimoh Ibrahim.
Jegede’s appeal is still pending at the Abuja Court of Appeal, which has adjourned its sitting on the case indefinitely.
Jegede belongs to the Ahmed Markarfi faction. Ibrahim is of the Ali Modu Sheriff camp.
