Governor Akeredolu Picks A New Running Mate For The Upcoming Ondo Gubernatorial Elections
The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has picked Mr. Lucky Ayedatiwa as his running mate for the 2020 Ondo Gubernatorial elections.
Disclosing this at a swearing-in ceremony of a commissioner and Special Adviser in Akure, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu mentioned that Lucky Ayedatiwa has been with the party since the beginning of his political journey in 2012.
The Governor said, “The leaders of the party have made wide consultations to choose the most suitable candidate as running mate in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the State. We have concluded that Mr. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa is the appropriate choice given the prevailing circumstances in the political arena at present.
”A candidate with verifiable credentials and pedigree has been chosen to complete the last part of the gubernatorial race. We may not have chosen a saint and the best but let it not be said that we, either wittingly or otherwise, settle for an avowed hater of human beings and good things, an enemy of his own people and a serial forger. We owe our people the duty of care in this regard.”
This is after the Deputy-Governor of Ondo State, who was also Akeredolu’s running mate in the previous election, defected to the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party.
