Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has called on people of the state not to allow the struggle for southern presidency to fail.
He added that the nation-wide acceptability enjoyed by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, 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.
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, adding that 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.
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 would help him deliver on his mandate, if elected.
He also urged the people to drum support for all the House of Representatives candidates of the party.
The governor said Mr Bunmi Tunji-Ojo, Timehin Adelegbe and Asiwaju Adegboyega Adefarati, as House of Representatives candidates, would bring quality representation to the people of their federal constituency.
Akeredolu also campaigned for the candidates of the state House of Assembly in the senatorial district.
