GOVERNORSHIP candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State in the November 26 governorship election, Barr. Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), has reassured party members in the state that no hope has been lost in reconciling with aggrieved members of the party who fell out with the party after the primary election. Akeredolu, said reconciliation can take place even a day before the election with an exception of those who have given up on the party and have joined other political parties to contest for the governorship position. Akeredolu emphasised that his target for the people of Ondo State if elected the governor will be job creation through; agriculture, entrepreneurship and industrialisation, massive infrastructural development and maintenance, promotion of functional education and technological growth, provision of accessible and qualitative healthcare/social services delivery and rural development and community extension. The governorship candidate also carpeted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, as representing the interest of his principal, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko alleging that Jegede is nothing but a surrogate and a third term agenda of the present administration which has not done well for the people of the State in almost eight years. He therefore said APC is determine to make sure that the present administration and whoever is a stooge for it has no basis to return to power. Akeredolu also confirmed the kick off of his governorship campaign in his plan to emerge as the next governor of Ondo State revealing that a mega rally will commence soon in all the eighteen Local Government Areas in the state. He also noted that there is no other thing driving him but service to the people of the State. “As an oil-producing State, the people are not feeling the impact of the revenue accrued to the state in terms of infrastructural development and programmes targeted to human empowerment”. He concluded that a lot of things have gone wrong that needed to be fixed.
