There are reports that Ondo guber aspirant, Abraham Olusegun who is the anointed candidate of APC National Party leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has pledged allegiance to Rotimi Akeredolu.
The runner-up in the September 3 primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Dr Olusegun Abraham, yesterday denied the report that he is backing the APC governorship candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
He urged his supporters and the people to distance themselves from any information or attempt to confuse them and sway their conviction, by wrongfully claiming “that I am considering a move to work with or support Rotimi Akeredolu”.
“I, Olusegun Abraham, have not thrown my weight behind Akeredolu or any other person(s). I remain solidly behind the people of Ondo State and vice versa and I strongly believe that justice will be secured soon enough.
“Any rumour stating such is a product of deliberate deceit and a selfish attempt to confuse the people.
“The matter seeking the reclamation of my mandate, which is the mandate of the people, is in court, with another hearing slated for November 10. I’m standing firm on getting justice, not only for myself or the members of the APC, but also for the people of Ondo State, who have earnestly shown their desire for good governance by embracing my candidature.”
