Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN has denied ever supporting any other candidate in Ondo Central Senatorial District rather than the incumbent, Senator Tayo Alasoadura.
The Governor said it was enough if a man has been Commissioner, Secretary to the State Government, Minister and most importantly governor for eight years.
“They have moved from People’s Democratic Party to Labour Party. From Labour Party to Zenith Labour Party and they’re moving to “Extinct Labour Party “, he said.
The Governor said Senator Tayo Alasoadura has been a steadfast and staunch supporter of his administration in the State, hence it’s time to reward his steadfastness.
The governor had earlier held a rally in his home town, Owo for the Northern Senatorial district where he urged the massive crowd to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates.
At the Central Senatorial district mega rally which was held at Akure City Town Hall, Akeredolu urged the people of Akure South, Akure North, Idanre, Ifedore, Ondo East and Ondo West to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The governor also enjoined the people of the senatorial district to cast their votes for Senator Tayo Alasoadura and Afe Olowokere for the Akure South/North Federal constituency.
One after the other, the candidates took turn to address the people.
The Chairman of the party in the state, Engr. Ade Adetimehin said the party has only spent two years in office but with massive developmental strides across the state.
He said :” We have only spent two years in Office, we have constructed more roads than the previous government who spent eight years. We have delivered on our electoral promises. We inherited seven months salary arrears, we have offset six. Akeredolu has employed doctors and nurses . We are putting smiles on the faces of our people
“These are part of the reasons you must go out on Saturday and vote for President Muhammadu Buhari. We must continue to enjoy the goddies in the state.”
