I’m still in Ondo governorship race says Akeredolu


Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has urged his followers to disregard the rumours of his disqualification from participating in the July 20 governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC),

Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Media and Publicity, Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu   in a statement in Akure, said the rumour was a ploy to distract supporters of Akeredolu stating that the governor was still in the governorship race scheduled for Oct. 10.

He explained that 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, and 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,” he said.
