The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the coming Ondo State governorship election, Rotimi Akeredolu, has said his reconciliation is continuing among aggrieved members of the party who are opposed to his candidature.
In a statement on Sunday, the candidate urged his supporters not to lose hope in the reconciliation, as truce could be reached even a day before the election.
According to him, only those who have dumped the party would be left out of the reconciliation efforts.
Despite efforts to reconcile some of the aggrieved aspirants and their supporters, there are doubts that the frontline aspirants who opposed his candidacy would back his campaigns.
Although there was a cessation of hostilities, the aspirants preferred to stay at the background than to deploy their political structure for the campaigns.
Mr. Akeredolu said if elected, he would implement a five point agenda of job creation, through agriculture, entrepreneurship and industrialisation; massive infrastructural development and maintenance; promotion of functional education and technological growth; provision of accessible and qualitative healthcare/social services delivery; and rural development and community extension.
Mr. Akeredolu also said that the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, represents the interest of his principal, Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
He alleged that Mr. Jegede was nothing but a surrogate and a third term agenda of the present administration which, he said, has not done well for the people of the state in almost eight years.
Mr. Akeredolu, who kicked off his campaign, said he would hold mega rallies in all the 18 local governments of the state in his effort to reach the people.
“As an oil-producing State, the people are not feeling the impact of the revenue accrued to the state in terms of infrastructure development and programmes targeted to human empowerment,” he said.
He said nothing was too much as sacrifice to ensure a change in the government, adding that a lot of things had gone wrong in the state.
