Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has urged his supporters to disregard the widely circulated rumour that he has been disqualified by Election Screening Committee.
Mr. Akeredolu in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Ojo Oyewamide said the news that he has been disqualified is untrue.
He noted that he has not been disqualified from participating at the Party Primary scheduled for July 20.
The Governor described the news as another distraction unleashed with the aim of deceiving the unsuspecting public
The statement added, “This is yet another distraction unleashed with the aim of deceiving the unsuspecting public and diverting attention from the self-imposed pains on the part of those behind the story.
“It is clearly, coming from those who have chosen the perfidious political path.
“Governor Akeredolu is not just participating at the Party Primary. He shall be re-elected by the Grace of God come October10, 2020”.
The Governor therefore appealed to all his supporters to ignore the rumour and dedicate this period to God for His continuous grace, favour and protection.
“It’s a ploy to distract you. They are scavengers and will stop at nothing to sustain their trade of deceit. Ignore them. Remain firm. Be dedicated and be prayerful”, the Governor noted
