Ondo Will Be At Lost If Akeredolu Is Not Elected, Says Okorocha
The Governor of Imo State, Chief Rochas Okorocha has appealed to the people from South East Geo political zone living in Ondo State to cast their votes en mass for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for November 26th election in Ondo State, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN.
Speaking on Tuesday when the campaign train of Akeredolu visited Igbo Traders at motor spare parts market at the Popular Ilesa Garage, Akure, the state capital, Okorocha said only Akeredolu possesses the intellectual capacity and erudition that can move Ondo state forward among the egghead of aspirants slogging out for the governorship seat.
Okorocha who is the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum said Ondo State will be at lost if Akeredolu is rejected for any of his opponents, stressing that the only aim of the former President of the Nigeria Bar Association is to serve and develop the state.
In his words, Okorocha said "I am here today to tell you where to go and as your leader and grand patron, I am sure you will take to my order. Come next Saturday , your vote should go for APC and Akeredolu.
"Don't vote to bring PDP back to power. Also, this new party making noise, please jettison it, it has nothing to offer, its mission is to loot, steal and under-develop you. The only man that can make you laugh is Akeredolu, a senior advocate of Nigeria.
"Let me tell you, Ondo People will be the one to lose if Akeredolu is not elected Governor. I am saying this because only him has the integrity and credibility to deliver. If you don't want to cry for the next four years, Akeredolu is the solution. If you want good roads, and you what your market to be renovated, Akeredolu is the way.
"Today's visit is preliminary, I will be around this Saturday with President Muhammadu Buhari. Please troop out to welcome Mr President. Join the change train, don't be an enemy of change." He said.
In his speech, Akeredolu promised to construct a motor spare part village for the Igbo dealers if elected.
He urged them to live in peace and harmony with their hosts, stating that if he win, his government will not discriminate against the non-indigenes in the state.
He also promised to appoint non-indigenes into positions to serve as Liason officers between them and the government.
