Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has vowed to defeat all his opponents at the governorship primaries election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) scheduled to hold on July 20,2020.
Akeredolu made this known at the distribution of 30 cars to constituency Coordinators of Ibi-Giga Ambassadors on Saturday.
The Ibi-Giga Ambassadors is one of the support group for the re-election of Akeredolu, led by an industrialist, Chief Alex Oluremi Ajipe.
The governor, who explained that he would win any form of primary the national leadership planned to organise in the state, said that he did not force any body to contribute to his campaign but that people contributed willingly.
He cautioned the Ibi-Giga Ambassadors Coordinators not to use the vehicles for commercial purposes but to mobilise voters to support his second term bid.
“This is an important event towards our second term. We will not only win, we will defeat all of them. None of them has this kind of support.
“Our party in Ondo state has said they want indirect but what they will decide in Abuja I don’t know but whether direct or indirect it is a win for me. We are not scared of direct primaries,” Akeredolu said.
Earlier, Convener of Ibi-Giga Ambassadors, Chief Alex Ajipe, said the vehicles were purchased and distributed to strategic places across the state to ensure the governor’s giant strides were properly propagated to the people.
Ajipe called on the constituency coordinators to see the project as their collective effort to support Akeredolu’s re-election.
“Majority of the governor’s projects especially Ondo-Linyi Industrial Hub in Ore were set up to secure future for generations yet unborn in the state.
“Second term agenda of Aketi is an agenda of everybody. It is everybody’s project, all of us must go out there as Ibi Giga Ambassadors to mobilise people wards by wards and constituency by constituency to make this re-election project a reality.
“This Governor has transformed Ondo State. He did what other governors could not do.
“We are going to the field and our target is to win in all the wards and that will be a confirmation to doubting thomases,” he said.
