Ondo: A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State, Isaac Kekemeke, has revealed that the ruling party will maximise the power of the federal government for the October 10 governorship election in Ondo state.

Recall Mr Kekemeke was one of the aspirants who contested in the APC primary against the incumbent governor of the state, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu who later won the party ticket for the October 10 election.

Kekemeke is also a former chairman of the party in Ondo.

VOICE AIR MEDIA gathered that Mr Akeredolu has resolved his differences with Mr Kekemeke, other APC aspirants and aggrieved members of the party recently aftee the primary election.

Mr Kekemeke spoke in a viral video published by Sahara Reporters while meeting with his supporters in the state. He said the party will ‘beat’ the opposition using all means.

He also criticised the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede, for alleging that his banners were destroyed by APC thugs.

“We will use all those loyal to us to win this election at all costs. Eyitayo (Jegede) is only crying foul that they tore his posters in town. He has not seen anything yet.

“Governor Akeredolu is the one currently battling with him. By the time the Federal Government comes to the state for the election, he will run away… He (Jegede) cannot even withstand Yahaya Bello. I’m a militant with Niger Delta blood and we will give in all that cost”.

“We all should come together and ensure that we beat them in all local government. So, there is no room for them,” he said in the video.


All efforts to reach Mr Kekemeke for clarification on what he specifically meant by his statement proved abortive.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released 17 candidates and deputies from different political parties for the election.
