President Muhammadu Buhari has given his blessings to Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the state forthcoming elections.
He also charged the party’s campaign committee for Ondo State governorship election to ensure that the party retains the state in the upcoming poll.
President Buhari gave the task on Friday when Akeredolu and the party’s campaign council for the Ondo governorship election approached him.
Disclosing the President’s charge while briefing State House correspondents, the Chairman of APC’s National Caretaker Committee and governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, said President Buhari expressed confidence in Akeredolu’s chances, even as he officially offered the candidate his blessings.
Buni said: “Like I have earlier said, Mr. President has endorsed him and he commended him for his efforts in the last four years, as he is aware of the transformation and the development he has made in the last four years.
“APC is the only party that can win election in Ondo, not only because APC as a party is the only party but because the governor there is performing and has performed. The people of Ondo state have seen it themselves and have agreed that he is the only man they can trust for the next four years.
“So, Mr. President has endorsed him. That is what we have been looking for: his blessing, his endorsement, his encouragement and his support, and we have got that already.
