The national leadership of the All
Progressives Congress has forwarded the name of 
Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) to the Independent National Electoral
Commission in Abuja as its governorship candidate in the November 26 governorship
election in Ondo State.

It also forwarded the name of Mr.
Agboola Ajayi as Akeredolu’s running mate.

While Akeredolu hails from Owo, his
running mate is said to be from Ese-Odo Local Government Area of the state.

Authoritative sources, however,
said that Ajayi’s name was submitted in the interim and could still be removed.

The Director, Publicity and Voter
Education at the commission, Mr. Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, told Urban Express on
Thursday in Abuja, that the ruling party had actually submitted the names of
its candidate and the running mate to the commission.

Though he refused to mention the
names submitted by the party, he nevertheless said “it was true that the APC
has submitted the names of its candidates to us.”

Akeredolu, who confirmed that his
name had been sent to INEC as the governorship candidate of the APC, described
the decision as the work of God.

“What can I say than to thank God
who has done it again? God does not abandon His projects notwithstanding the
challenges that may arise,” Akeredolu said in a statement issued on Thursday
night by the Aketi Media Group.

He said, “I make bold to say to my
co-aspirants in the APC, that we are all winners. None is vanquished. We are
all victors. None is a loser. I hold the ticket of the party in trust for all
of you. I am not perfect. No one is. But I will make up for my imperfections by
drawing from your collective strength. Together we shall work in one accord to
achieve success in the November 26 governorship election.

“Now is the time to pool our energy
and resources together and rescue our state from misery and misrule of the
Peoples Democratic Party-led government. United we stand. United we shall be
victorious.”

Akeredolu also hailed members of
the NWC, especially the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun; the
party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; and President Muhammadu Buhari
for ensuring that justice was done to all parties in the dispute.
