Ondo 2020: Oke hands over structure, vows South’s support for Akeredolu

By Maria Ifafesobi
A former gubernatorial aspirant and a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Mr. Olusola Oke, SAN, has handed over his structures across the eighteen local government areas of the state to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN.
This was made known in a Statement signed by the Spokesperson, Akeredolu/Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organisation, Mr. Olabode Olatunde in Akure, the state capital.
Mr. Oke said his decision to support Governor Akeredolu’s reelection was a result of the developmental strides of Governor Akeredolu’s in the Southern Senatorial district of the state. He described the reelection of Governor Akeredolu into government as very important for the future of the Southern Senatorial District.
He however reiterated that the Southern Senatorial District will support Governor Akeredolu’s. Adding that the Southern District will be the one to choose a governor by itself when it is time to produce one.
He said, “If we want a governor in the south, we will choose by ourselves. Not the one that will be picked from the central. We have not chosen anyone to be our governor in the south. No person will choose our Governor for us.
“We have agreed that Aketi will do second term. After him, it will come to the south. We will look for a renowned son like Agagu to be our governor. But for October 10 poll, Akeredolu is our candidate and we will vote for him overwhelmingly.
“The renaming of Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH) after Agagu is enough for me to follow Aketi. We have used our money to train him. He has the experience of governance. We don’t want to experiment.
“That University for eight years after Agagu was like a goat house. It was abandoned. We know those who abandoned it. Now, they want to choose a governor for us in the south.
“Ondo south will deliver great for you. We want to use our votes to secure our future. We don’t want anyone to contest with us next time. We want to deliver a vote that can’t be challenged in court.
