I Have Lost Confidence in Ondo APC Primary Process - Governorship Aspirant Kekemeke

The forthcoming Ondo state governorship poll has continued to generate one controversy or the other. In this latest one, Isaac Kekemeke, one of the aspirants billed to participate in the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary on Monday, July 20, says he had totally lost confidence in the process.

Kekemeke also questioned the indirect-primary-selection mode-adopted by the party to produce its candidate. The APC governorship aspirant disclosed this while featuring on a TVC television program on Monday, July 20, in Akure.

According to him, the primary committee led by the governor Yayaha Bello of Kogi State was not fair to many of the governorship aspirants.

Meanwhile, the re_election bid of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has been handed a boost after 4 of the aspirants vying for APC ticket stepped down for the Ondo governor.

The All Progressives Congress primary election is scheduled for Monday, July 20, and with hours to go, Ife Oyedele said he will step down for the incumbent governor.

Speaking with journalists on Sunday, July 19, Oyedele who is the executive director of the Niger-Delta-Power Holding Company of Nigeria, said he is now pitching his tents with the Governor.

Three more aspirants namely Dr Nathaniel Adojutelegan, Olusegun Abraham, and Jimi Odimayo have also stepped-down for the governor

The aspirants in the ruling party's ticket race are Olusola Oke (SAN), Olaide Adelami, Bukola Adetula, Segun Abraham, Jumoke Anifowose, Isaac Kekemeke, Awodeyi Akinsehinwa and Sola Iji.

Controversies have, however, trailed the mode of primary-adopted by the party with all aspirants except Gov Akeredolu rejecting the indirect-mode the-party wants to use for its shadow poll.
