Akeredolu, Abraham

Few hours to APC governorship primary election in Ondo State, another aspirant, Dr. Olusegun Abraham has stepped down for the incumbent governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN.

The Governor announced this via his twitter account gathered by VOICE AIR MEDIA.

Dr Olusegun Abraham is the second aspirant that will be stepping down for the Governor within the past 24hours. Engr. Ifeoluwa Oyedele had yesterday step down for the Governor and declare his support for him.

In his tweets, the Governor said “I just got off the phone with my brother Olusegun Abraham who informed me of his decision to support my second term ambition. Together, we will keep the sun shining in Ondo State.”

There are now seven aspirants ready to contest with the governor in today’s primary.

They are: Olusola Oke, Olaide Adelami, Bukola Adetula, Jumoke Anifowose, Sola Iji, Isaac Kekemeke, and Awodeyi Akinsehinwa.

One of them, Mr Kekemeke, who appeared on a TVC interview on Monday morning said he has lost confidence in the process that led to an indirect primary selection mode and also alleged that the committee, led by the Kogi State Governor, Yayaha Bello, is not being fair to many of the governorship aspirants.

“I said as much to Governor Yahaya Bello and his team. They were handing the delegates list to us at exactly 11: 20 pm. I received mine at 11:22 pm on the 19th of July, and I was seeing guidelines for the first time at about 11:22 pm”

“For me, this process is unfair. It is aimed at producing a predetermined result because all we have heard about this election has been heard through government officials, Sources that are friendly or campaigning for the governor to return.”

While some of the aspirants called for postponement, Mr Bello has insisted that the primary will hold today.
