“In 2016, Ondo State struggled tooth and nail to oust the Labour Party and Arakunrin Akeredolu was made to replace Dr. Mimiko. Arakunrin has proved capable and able in all areas of governance.
“He is making us very proud in Ondo State, in our senatorial district and especially in Owo/Ose. Owo has become the envy of contemporary cities, larger and smaller communities, courtesy of Arakunrin.
“I think we must continue to appreciate him, especially in Owo, because he has proved to be a great leader and we owe it our great duties to rally round him, encourage and empower him to continue to sustain the leadership status, build on it and grow to become a builder of modern Ondo State like Lagos State; to establish a strong succession platform for APC for a long time in the state.
“We are in an election year, 2022/2023 for general elections. We must cultivate the habit of collective struggles and great determinations to ensure that all our APC candidates from House of Assembly, Representatives, Senate and President are victorious in our senatorial District.
“This is a litmus test which calls for our concerted efforts, and all that we can sacrifice to ensure huge success. We can; we will be there; God being our helper.
“In line manner, 2024/2025 election year will be around the corner soon, knocking to be ushered in by interested gubernatorial aspirants. I want to hasten to say that election should be taken seriously by all of us as being unique and significant in the sense that APC, our great party, must break, a great jinx of APC government putting in place an APC governor, smooth transition and a laudable succession achievement.”
The meeting was attended by leaders of the party, APC candidates in Ondo North and other party members.
