The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday in Akure officially flagged off the campaign of its candidate, Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, for the October 10 gubernatorial election in Ondo State.
Speaking at the rally, the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the party, Mai Buni, urged people of the state not to allow anyone to truncate the developmental strides of the Akeredolu administration.
Mr Buni, who is also the governor of Yobe State, stated that APC was known for progress and development across all human endeavours.
Also, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, who is also the Chairman of the National Campaign Committee for Ondo State, said that Mr Akeredolu had brought about real development across the state.
Mr Sanwo-Olu described Mr Akeredolu as progressive-minded, and who must be allowed to spend a second term in office for the betterment of the state.
Also, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State said that Mr Akeredolu had done a lot, adding that there was no place in the state that had not felt the impact of the developmental strides of the Akeredolu-led government.
Mr Fayemi described Mr Akeredolu as evidence of commitment, compassion and development in the state.
While affirming that all the promises of Mr Akeredolu have been fulfilled, Mr Fayemi gave an assurance that all APC members were solidly behind Mr Akeredolu’s re-election.
He urged all APC supporters to continue to campaign for the party’s victory on October 10.
Appreciating APC supporters, Mr Akeredolu said he was prepared to do much more than his administration had recorded in the last three and a half years in office.
The governor warned the people not to vote for “those who would come to ruin the gains that had been entrenched in the last three and a half years across the state.”
He urged APC members and supporters to reach out to all nooks and crannies of the state for the party to have overwhelming votes.
