Ondo state Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has said that All Progressive Congress (APC) will lose Ondo State, if the party eventually denied him second term ticket.
Akeredolu the bone behind formation of Operations Amotekun said this as he react to threat he received over his decision to stand firmly for the establishment of the southwest security outfit, Amotekun.
The Governor whose first term as Ondo state Governor will expire 2021, said
“I didn’t ask to become Governor of Ondo State; the people sought me out to be their leader. As far as I am concerned power belongs to God and not to any man or leader. It is God who gives power and not any human being. That was why I ran and won the primary of the last governorship election in Ondo State without paying people money as other contestants did."
“I can tell you that there is no threat or panic whatsoever to my second term election. What I do know for sure is that if APC goes ahead to pick another person as their governorship candidate for Ondo State the party would lose the state.
“But with me on the ballot, we will win a landslide for APC in Ondo State. That is certain because God’s hands are with me and I cannot fail in my second term bid. My trust is in God and not in any man with clay feet.”
When reminded that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was making stronger inroads into the state politics and could pose a threat to his re-election next year, Governor Akeredolu retorted:
“There’s no PDP in Ondo State.
