Ahead of the October 10 governorship election in Ondo, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos has urged the people of the state to support Governor Akeredolu on his re-election bid.
Sanwo-Olu said that the performance of Akeredolu in the state was evident.
He said this in Okitipupa, Okitipupa Local Government Area (LGA) of the state during the campaign tour of Akeredolu to seek the blessings of traditional rulers of the area ahead of the poll.
Sanwo-Olu also said that the Ikale people were good people as the Ikale indigenes in Lagos state supported Akeredolu governorship bid, and urged them to repeat the same feat for the governor.
“I witnessed all the developments in the state because Akeredolu has been working day and night to ensure things get better; if you don’t believe him, you should believe in his works.
“His sterling performance is not negotiable and deserves re-election; go and tell the people that you have seen a deliverer who will take Ondo state to higher height,” Samwo-Olu said.
Bajowa said that the construction of the Ore flyover which was the first in the state and the Ondo State Industrial hub in Ore brought employment opportunities for the teeming youths.
“You will succeed in your second term bid because you have made us happy and all traditional rulers are behind you; we support and endorse you,” Oba Bajowa said.
Also, Oba Babatunde Faduyile, the Abodi of Ikale land, urged Akeredolu to continue with his good works if re-elected.
Faduyile said he had no doubt that his good works would speak for him at the poll and prayed that God would support him to win the election.
Responding, Akeredolu said that he would not be commending himself for all he had done, but that his works were there to speak for him.
He appealed to Ondo residents to vote for APC en masse, saying that the economy of the state would boom as there were several plans to turn it around.
“We have sealed the agreement to reconnect the southern part to the national grid from the Omotosho power plant and soon the darkness witnessed here will be over.
“The seaport project in Ilaje LGA, exploration of bitumen, rejuvenation of the Okitipupa Palm Oil Company and other plans that will boom the state economy are in the pipeline,” he said.
Legit.ng had also reported that ahead of the forthcoming election, APC issued a stern warning to the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike.
The party said it will continue to appeal to the people of the state to renew the mandate given Governor Rotimi Akeredolu four years ago, considering its efforts to reposition the state.
Legit.ng gathered that the APC stressed that it would not resort to rigging as alleged by Governor Wike.
Legit.ng had also reported that the Ondo state government sent a warning message to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state ahead of the October 10 gubernatorial election.
It was reported that Governor Akeredolu vowed that the state would do everything to stop Wike from asserting his influence in the election.
Wike had alleged that the APC working with the state government is mounting pressure on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) so as to manipulate the poll.
