Ondo 2024: Aiyedatiwa, other Aspirants should step down, back Olusola Oke –Akure Pastor declares

Ahead of the All Progressives Congress governorship primary election in Ondo state, the senior pastor of AWAITING THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST MINISTRY, Akure, Adewale Giwa, has appealed to other governorship aspirants including governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa to step down for a frontline aspirant, Chief Olusola Oke.

Giwa said in Akure, the Ondo state capital, that Oke is the most experienced to lead the people of Ondo state.

The cleric specifically said the development of Ondo state should come first before anybody’s political ambition.

Oke, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria who has contested for the governorship seat twice, has, again, thrown his hat into the ring to contest in the next month primary of the APC.

The national leadership of the APC had ruled out an automatic ticket for the governor of the state, Hon. Aiyedatiwa.

Over 20 aspirants in the ruling APC in the state are jostling for the governorship seat.

However, Giwa, while, said he never believed, until now that someone like Aiyedatiwa would contest against his kinsman, Chief Oke.

“Honestly, I never believed it until now that governor Aiyedatiwa is contesting against his brother, Chief Olusola Oke.

“I was a journalist in the state, and I should be able to tell you who has knowledge, capacity, and experience to lead the people of Ondo state.

“Oke has been on the ground since 1999 when he was elected as a federal lawmaker. A former NDDC Commissioner who represented Ondo state well in 2002.

“There was no local government area in Ondo state that his administration didn’t touch in terms of electricity and health centers.

“Going by the current situation in Ondo State in ters of poverty and misgovernanance, the people of the state need the most experienced, generous, and accommodating politician like Chief Oke.

“I have known Chief Oke way before 1999, and I can authoritavely tell you, the good people of Ondo state that he won’t disappoint you.

“Hon. Aiyedatiwa has a right under our constitution to contest. However, he must remember that the development of the state comes first before ambition.

“Let me appeal to him to step down for his brother, with whom they both come from the same area. Oke has suffered politically enough to be cheated and pushed over.

“In fact, I expect the APC to offer him the governorship ticket unopposed. Oke has paid his dues.

“I don’t think Ondo state deserves to suffer again in the hands of inexperienced politicians,” said Giwa.
