Rotimi Akeredolu, Solomon Lalong and President Muhammadu Buhari
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), has boasted that if the two factional candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Jimoh Ibrahim and Eyitayo Jegede, combine forces and contest against him, he would emerge victorious at the poll.
Akeredolu said this on Monday when the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Governorship Campaign in Ondo State, Mr. Solomon Lalong, led him to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, according to the Punch.
Lalong is the governor of Plateau State. Lalong and Akeredolu told State House correspondents after the meeting, which was held inside the President’s office at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, that they were confident of the party’s victory in the forthcoming election.
Akeredolu who is fondly referred to as Aketi in Ondo has continued to soar high in popularity following the crisis of supremacy rocking the main opposition party in Nigeria – PDP.
The despondent people of Ondo have deciced to settle for the former President of the Nigerian Bar Association following his track record of integrity and campaign for good governance since his days as the Attorney General of the State during the military rule in the 90s.
