Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will win the 2023 election with wide margin.
Akeredolu said the APC is lucky to have a personality like Tinubu as its Presidential candidate.
The Governor, who described Asiwaju Tinubu as reliable and competent, also added that the presidential candidate is the only candidate that can engender desired positive change and development in the country.
He spoke on Monday in Ondo town at the Central Senatorial District campaign rally of the APC in the State.
The rally was in continuation of the Senatorial Rally of the party which was flagged-off last week Monday in Okitipupa, Ondo South Senatorial District.
Addressing a large crowd of party leaders, members and supporters at the rally held at Our Saviours Primary School, Esso Area, Ondo, Governor Akeredolu canvassed votes for all candidates of the party.
”Tinubu will be elected as the President. Should we be looking for someone else in Sokoto or Adamawa when we have a reliable and competent person amongst us. We are lucky to have Asiwaju Tinubu in APC. He will win”, Akeredolu added.
The Governor also enjoined the people to vote for the Senatorial candidate of the party in Ondo Central, Mr Niyi Adegbonmire,SAN, popularly known as Omo-Ekun.
He said Adegbonmire has the capacity and competence to bring quality representation to the people of Ondo Central.

The Governor later presented the party’s flags to all the candidates of the party in the Central Senatorial District.
Earlier, Chairman of the party in the State, Ade Adetimehin expressed delight at the huge turn out of party faithful in the Senatorial district.
“Eight days ago, we were at the South to establish the fact that APC is the most popular in the south and we have confirmed it today that APC is the most popular in the Central. By the grace of God , next week Monday we will be at the North, because our leader is from the North. After that we will go from house to house to canvass votes.
“Keep your PVC, it is your weapon. From top to bottom, it must be APC. It is time for total loyalty. We have a Governor that we can be proud of.
He’s a committed leader. He’s loyal to his words. If you look at his achievements, he’s a role model. On security in the Southwest, he stood his ground and today we can sleep with our two eyes closed.
“We are campaigning on Governor Akeredolu’s achievement. In terms of performance, nobody has performed better than Akeredolu since the creation of this state in terms of road infrastructure, school, health and so on”, Adetimehin stressed.
The chairman further added that after campaigns across the three Senatorial Districts, the party leaders will begin Local Government to local government, Ward to ward, unit to unit, House to house and door to door, hamlet to hamlet campaigns to record landslide victory for the APC in the general elections.
Adetimehin also received over 350 members of the People Democratic Party (PDP) into the APC. They were led by Adedayo Ayodele Sabali from Ijare ward.
