The United Kingdom chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Ondo State electorate to re-elect Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu because he has been tested and trusted to deliver good governance.
The chapter made the call in statement signed by Mr Jacob Ogunseye, its Publicity Secretary on Thursday in Abuja.
It described Akeredolu who is the APC candidate for the Ondo State governorship election slated for Oct. 10 as the best candidate among others, saying he deserves to be re-elected.
This, according to the APC UK would ensure that Akeredolu who is also the Ondo State incumbent governor continued his good works in the state.
It said Akeredolu was a rare gem whose achievements in the last three and half years should be a crucial factor in deciding the outcome of the Ondo State governorship elections.
It expressed optimism that with Akeredolu’s re-election, the state would have a better chance to compete at the national level.
The statement quoted Mr Ade Omole, the chapter’s leader as saying that Akeredolu is a man with great and enviable credentials and love for the state.
“His giant strides in areas of industrialisation, infrastructural development, health, and education have shown his unalloyed love for his state.
“It will be ignoble to venture for any untested hands now when it is the time to consolidate”, Omole said
He, therefore.charged Ondo State electorate to work and ensure the success of the governor in the forthcoming election.
He noted that prior to the electioneering campaigns Akeredolu had commissioned several laudable projects across the state’s Local Government Area.
Omole said Akeredolu was a man of character who displayed commitment and loyalty to his people.
“He has shown leadership and governance in a positive dimension and has shown courage in the face of adversaries.
“Akeredolu has brought progress into the lives of many, I urge all voters in Ondo to vote for him.
“He deserves a second term and we can only expect more if he is given the opportunity to govern the state for another four years,” Omole said, adding that Akeredolu would do more in his second term
