FRANK TALK WITH FEMI OLANIPEKUN
Controversy has continued to trail the All Progressive Congress APC governorship primaries in Ondo State that produced Mr Rotimi Akeredolu as winner out of the twenty-four candidates that participated.
The camp of Chief Olusola Oke who came third in the primaries said the delegates list was altered a day before the primary casting doubt on the credibility of the process.
The spokeman of Chief Oke’s group, Mr Rotimi Ogunleye, speaking on Frank Talk, Rave FM’s News and Current Affairs interview programme, clarified that the issue was not with the candidature of Mr Rotimi Akeredolu but with the process that produced him.
Mr Ogunleye who insisted that Chief Oke will not leave the APC for the PDP and is willing to support the party to win the governorship election in November, however warned that issues raised by his camp about the conduct of the primaries should be handled fairly to ensure the party’s success.
However, a member of the Ondo APC State Executive Council, Mr Saka-Yusuf Ogunleye maintained that the primary was free, fair and credible, insisting that the alleged changes made to the delegates list was done days before the exercise with the aspirants carried along.
The Ondo APC chieftain dispelled insinuations that the outcome of the primary was part of a conspiracy against the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, explaining that delegates picked their preferred candidate to be Mr Rotimi Akeredolu out of twenty-four candidates that participated.
