Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has called on the people not to allow the struggle for Southern Presidency to be in vain.
Governor Akeredolu noted that it is the turn of the South to produce the next President of the country after the eight years of Northerner in the saddle.
The Governor spoke on Monday at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ondo North Senatorial Campaign Rally of the party held at Methodist Primary School, Owo.
Huge crowd of party faithful and supporters across the six Local Government Areas of the Ondo North Senatorial District attended the rally which was carnival like.

Femi Adekambi; State Representative on the board of Niger Delta Development Commission, Hon. Gbenga Edema, among others.
Governor Akeredolu assured that the country will flourish under Tinubu, if elected as the President of the Country.
“Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is tested and trusted. He has been Governor of Lagos State and we know how he transformed the State. I can assure you, Nigeria will move forward under Tinubu as President”, he said.
The Governor urged the people to go out enmass and vote for the APC from Tinubu to the House of Assembly candidates
Akeredolu called on the people of Owo, Ose and Akoko to vote massively for the Senatorial candidate of the party, Pastor Jide Ipinsagba, adding that his experience in the private sector will help him deliver on his mandate, if elected.
He also urged the people to drum support for the House of Representatives candidates of the party.
The Governor said Bunmi Tunji-Ojo; Timehin Adelegbe; and Asiwaju Adegboyega Adefarati will bring quality representation to the people of their Federal Constituencies.
Governor Akeredolu also campaigned for the candidates of House of Assembly in the Senatorial district.

The Minister of State for Transportation, Prince Ademola Adegoroye charged the people to vote for the APC. He stressed the need for party members to prioritise party loyalty for progress and development.
Chairman of the party in the State, Engr. Ade Adetimehin said Owo indigenes are known for their roles in standing for justice and equality in the country’s democracy.
”This is Owo. Akeredolu championed the struggle for Southern Presidency. Baba Ajasin championed the June 12 struggle. Another Owo man has championed Tinubu’s presidency. Let us go to our unit, ward and local government. It is time for Yoruba to be President.
“This election is for the Progressive. Our country will move forward under Tinubu. Vote Tinubu and all the Senate, Reps, House of Assembly candidates under the APC. Don’t sell your votes.
“Akeredolu’s performance will earn APC victory in Ondo state. This vote should be across board, top to bottom. The ideology of our party is Welfarism”, he added
Adetimehin later received over 500 PDP members in Akoko led by Bada Sunday and Sola Dauda into the APC.
At the rally, a student movement group, under the aegis of Coalition of Youth Group in Ondo North Senatorial District presented two Awards to the Governor for his courage and investment in youths.
