Ahead of the incoming governorship election in Ondo state, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has revealed what the All Progressives Congress would do to win the poll.
The Nation reports that Sanwo-Olu, who is the chairman of the APC national campaign council for Ondo state governorship election, Babajide Sanwoolu, said the ruling party’s victory in the October 10, poll would be a landslide and that the party’s standard-bearer, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
Legit.ng gathered that he said Akeredolu enjoys the endorsement of the party’s national leader, Asiwaju BolaTinubu and the blessings of the entire party structure from the national to the state level.
Sanwo-Olu spoke with newsmen on Saturday, August 15, at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, after the inauguration of the 104-member national campaign council for the Ondo state governorship election by Governor Mai Mala Buni, the chairman caretaker/extra-ordinary national convention planning committee.
He said: "The endorsement was not only his (Asiwaju Tinubu) endorsement but a collective endorsement. In this endorsement you saw Senator Borofice, you have seen our brother, Olusola Oke, you see meetings where Kekemeke was in attendance, you see meetings where Dr. Abraham was in attendance.
The campaign council chairman then said the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, are on a wild goose chase, advising them not to waste their time and energy as the people of the state have resolved to go for a progressive government.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it might suspend the governorship elections in Edo and Ondo state if the violence recorded in the course of the polls become unbearable.
It was reported that Festus Okoye, INEC’s national commissioner and chairman of information and voter education committee made the disclosure when he appeared on a programme on Channels TV on Sunday, August 9.
In a related development, the report noted that PDP was in a dilemma over who becomes the running mate of its governorship candidate, Eyitayo Jegede.
Jegede clinched the PDP ticket by polling 888 to defeat his closest rival, Agboola Ajayi, who got 657 votes.
Aspirants that contested at the primary of the PDP were jostling to be named as running mate to Eyitayo Jegede for the October 10 governorship election.
