Latest Ondo Decides 2020 Politics

Akeredolu reacts to rumour of his disqualification from Ondo APC governorship primaries

Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, said on Sunday he was still in the race for the state governorship seat.

Akeredolu, who disclosed this in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Ojo Oyewamide, said the rumour of his disqualification from the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primaries slated for July 20, was a ploy to distract his supporters.

The APC screening panel in Ondo State had on Friday cleared 11 of the 12 aspirants for the primaries.

The state’s governorship election holds on October 10.

The statement read: “It was another distraction unleashed with the aim of deceiving the unsuspecting public and diverting attention from the self-imposed pains on the part of those behind the story.

“They are scavengers and will stop at nothing to sustain their trade of deceit. Ignore them, remain firm, be dedicated and prayerful.

Akeredolu is not just participating at the party primary. He shall be re-elected by the Grace of God come October 10, 2020.

“The governor, therefore, appeals to all his supporters to ignore the rumour and dedicate this period to God for His continuous grace, favour and protection.”
