An All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain in Ondo State, Mr Morayo Lebi, has said that the choice of Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa as the running mate to Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu will contribute immensely to the party’s victory at the poll.
Lebi stated this at a news conference on Friday in Akure, ahead of the Oct. 10 governorship election in the state.
He described Aiyedatiwa, from Ilaje Local Government area of the state, as a man loved and admired for his generosity and impactful contributions to the party’s growth and development.
According to him, with the selection of Aiyedatiwa as his running mate, the governor had the best choice, even as he urged the people of the state to vote en masse for Akeredolu for a second term.
“Aiyedatiwa is a man well-loved and he is definitely an added factor for engendering more votes for Akeredolu, especially in the southern senatorial district of the state,” he said.
Lebi congratulated the governor for winning the party’s primary, adding that the landslide victory, which he recorded, connoted unflinching confidence in his candidature by party members.
According to him, Akeredolu believes in equity and fairness, hence the ongoing massive infrastructure and other development projects across the state.
Lebi, who was APC flag bearer in the Ondo South Senatorial District in the 2015 election, noted that if Akeredolu could achieve so much within three years, he would develop the state more if he was allowed to spend eight years in office.
He added that Akeredolu was a man who would not renege on his promises, adding that in spite of the economic crunch, the governor was still able to meet up with the basic needs in all sectors of the state’s economy.
