The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has declared his intention to contest the forthcoming governorship election slated for October 2020.
He said he had accepted the calls from the people of the state to seek a second term in office on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
Akeredolu made this revelation on Saturday at a dinner organized by the state government as part of the activities marking the third-year anniversary of his administration, held at the International Culture and Event Centre, Akure, the state capital.
He said, “In the past, I have not declared to contest but most of you people do say 4+4, that 4+4 is for me, therefore, I have accepted the challenge to contest for the governorship again. I know you will vote for me; we will do it together.”
He thanked members of the state executive council, traditional rulers, religious bodies, party members and supporters, his family members, civil servants and labor leaders, friends, and well-wishers for all their efforts.
