Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has reacted to the statement by Senator Ajayi Boroffice that the Unity Forum within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state would jointly present one candidate for the primary poll ahead of the October 10 governorship election.
The governor’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Segun Ajiboye said;
“The perception of the pernicious outburst of the senator was to ignore him because such was misguided.”
“At best, empathy was most desirable for a man whose lust for excessive mischief has severally spurred him to paths of perfidy against his Southwest kinsmen”.
“The public, especially all lovers of our dear party, the APC deserve to know that the vituperations of Senator Borofice are fallouts of deflated hopes.”
“This is more so that his huge investment to destroy the party and stem the pace of development in Ondo State appears to have yielded no positive results.”
“Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu believes in the right of all qualified persons to aspire to be governor, it is perhaps, untoward on the part of supposed leaders to be unrestrained in the pursuit of their ambitions.”
“Akeredolu is not a desperate politician. He is not threatened by any gang-up in respect of the 2020 governorship race. His belief in the sanctity of the people’s backing remains unshaken”
