Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has called on the people of the state not to allow the struggle for the southern presidency to fail.
Akeredolu said that since the North had produced the president for eight years, it was the turn of the South to occupy the presidency.
He added that the nation-wide acceptability enjoyed by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Bola Tinubu, was a signal of victory in the coming election.
Akeredolu made the call at the APC Ondo North Senatorial Campaign Rally held in Owo on Monday.
The governor assured that the country would flourish under Tinubu if elected as president.
He explained that no amount of gimmicks and conspiracy could scuttle the victory of the party’s presidential candidate.
He said Tinubu was a man whose time had come.
“Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is tested and trusted. He has been governor of Lagos 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.
