Rotimi Akeredolu, Ondo state Governor, has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term. He said this at a rally in Akure to mark his first year as governor of the state.
“Here in Ondo State, we are supporting Buhari for a second term, and nothing can change that. We are with Buhari and Oyegun. I have to commend members of the state House of Assembly for tolerating me.
“I also thank Ade Adetimehin, who is the only chairman of the APC in Ondo State. Any other one is a counterfeit. Anybody who wants to fight should fight. This is not a hidden support; we are declaring it openly.
“I am one of the governors that will give everything it takes for him (Buhari) to secure a second term in 2019. I am open and frontal about my support for his second term,'' he said.
Present at the rally was John Odigie-Oyegun, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who received defectors from the Alliance for Democracy and the Peoples Democratic Congress, PDP. Others were Ibikunle AMosun, Ogun state Governor and Godwin Obaseki, Governor of Edo state.
