Senator Tayo Alasoadura, the minister of state for Niger/Delta Affairs, has backed the re-election bid of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
Naija News reports that the Ondo State Governorship election has been fixed for October 10, 2020.
Speaking to a crowd in Akure North LGA on Sunday, September 27, Senator Alasoadura described Akeredolu as the chosen candidate and king of the Akure kingdom.
According to him, the Ondo governor should be allowed to go for another term to complete eight years.
He also said that Eyitayo Jegede, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is only wasting his time.
Alasoadura said: “I am an Akure man and I can say very confidently the position of Akure people. Our candidate in Akure Kingdom is Akeredolu because we love justice and equity.
“Akeredolu is from the North. Akure is from the Central. The Central just completed eight years, the North should be allowed to complete their eight years. When next the position comes back to the Central, Akure will take the spot because Mimiko has used the slot of Ondo Kingdom.
“Besides, my brother, Jegede is merely wasting his time. We shall defeat him in the two Local Government in a level playing ground. Akeredolu is the man to beat in the two Local Governments in Akure kingdom.”
