Ondo Poll: Governor Akeredolu-#35 m Raised To Get Party's Nomination Form For Primaries

Several Ondo State support groups have raised over N35Million to purchase the nomination and expression of interest forms for Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, in advance of the October 10, 2020 state governorship election.

Help groups, which included: Ibi Giga Ambassadors, Aketi Mandate Party, Aketi One on One, Pentagon Movement Party, Ondo Youth for Aketi (OYA), Women in Politics and Members of the State Assembly, among many others, are organized by the Special Adviser to the Governor (Political and Strategy), Hon. It's Victor Olabitan.

At an event held in Akure, the state capital, Olabimtan, who spoke on behalf of the groups, said that they had come together to raise money for the governor to enable him to recontest and continue the good work that he had begun in the state. 

The Convenor of the Aketi Mandate Group, Hon. Saka Yusuf Ogunleye said the groups have been very proud of the achievements of the governor since the beginning of his administration.

Likewise, the convenor of Ibi Giga Ambassadors, Alex Ajipe, said that the people of the state had seen dividends from good governance in terms of industrialisation. 

Representatives of other groups who spoke one after the other praised the Governor for his vision and commitment to the service of the people. All the groups were unanimous in their determination to support and work on the bid for the second term

In his reply, Governor Akeredolu thanked all the organisations, noting that their participation is coming at a time when the cost of the nomination form is high. 

He said, "Two times I ran for this office. And I can assure you that, those two times, I've been paying with my money. But in those two days, the funds weren't as astronomical as they are now. I would like to thank you for this wonderful gesture. 

He encouraged all members of the groups to continue to spread the message of his performance over the last three years, maintaining that his administration's legacy projects are there for the world to see.
