The Minister, a native of Iju/Itaogbolu in Akure North Local Government Area(LGAs) of the state recently revealed that the candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, SAN, is merely wasting his time.
According to him, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is the candidate to beat in Akure North and South LGAs and the Northern Senatorial District where Akeredolu hails from must be allowed to complete its two terms of eight years.
He added that the people in the Northern Senatorial District believes in justice and equity, so Akeredolu is the man for the position.
His words, “I am an Akure man and I can say very confidently the position of Akure people. Our candidate in Akure Kingdom is Akeredolu because we love justice and equity.”
“Akeredolu is from the North. Akure is from the Central. The Central just completed eight years, the North should be allowed to complete their eight years. When next the position comes back to the Central, Akure will take the spot because Mimiko has used the slot of Ondo Kingdom.”
“Besides, my brother, Jegede is merely wasting his time. We shall defeat him in the two Local Government in a level playing ground. Akeredolu is the man to beat in the two Local Governments in Akure kingdom.”
