President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday formerly endorsed Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu as the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for Ondo State November 26 election.
Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State who made this known as he formerly unveiled the candidate before the President in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, boasted that party will take Ondo State and it did in Kogi and Edo states governorship elections.
Governor Lalong, who is the Chairman, APC campaign committee for Ondo election, had told State House Correspondents, “A few weeks ago, I was given the responsibility of leading the campaign on behalf of the National Executive for the Ondo election.
“We have only one candidate and that candidate is Chief Akeredolu Rotimi (SAN). Well, that is not a problem to APC, since inception. You knew what happened in Kogi, you knew what happened in Edo, we won the elections. It was as if it was going to be very difficult for us but we won the election.
“Today again, we are going into Ondo. The entire mistake we made in other states we have corrected them. We are seeing a very smooth election, not only a smooth election but the credibility of the candidate itself is something worth selling. We know definitely we are going to win the election.”
