More than 10 applicants who have bought selection and articulation of intrigue structures in the APC and the PDP are from Owo, old neighborhood of Governor Akeredolu.
These wannabes have supposedly promised to stop his re-appointment offer.
Talking during a visit to the Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye III and other conventional rulers in Ose and Owo Local Government Areas to inform them of his re-appointment offer, he said the individuals of Owo would not take risks at the surveys with obscure characters.
He expressed that his family who are out to challenge against him were on a narrow minded strategic having the enthusiasm of Owo individuals and the town on a basic level.
As per him;
“After submitting the nomination form in Abuja, we are duty-bound to come here (Owo) first to get your blessing for the next journey.
By the grace of God, we will be successful. That is why we have to come here first. This is my root. I’m a bonafide and authentic son of Owo. So, I cannot forget my source.
“For me, it is not much of a problem that some Owo sons are also willing to contest the election because we already know what will be the outcome. I’m not scared.
I can’t be scared. I have passed that stage. As long as I have the support of the royal fathers and the people, that is enough for me because you are the one that will decide where Owo is going.
The Olowo of Owo, Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye said the people of Owo and Ose have gained dividends of good governance under the Akeredolu’s administration and would continue to reap it for another four years.
“We are solidly behind Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to run for second term in office. As you have all seen, he has ensured development across the state in all facets of life.
We have never had it good in Ondo State. I’m using this opportunity to appeal to all and sundry to support Akeredolu for a second term in office.”
