The governorship candidate of the All
Progressives Congress in Ondo State,
Rotimi Akeredolu , has noted that his re-
election in the forthcoming election is a
The Ondo State Governor while speaking on
a television programme on Monday, said
his good works in office would ensure his
victory at the election.
He said: “We have done a lot of work that
will speak for us.”
The APC governorship candidate also
attacked his predecessor, Olusegun
Mimiko, whom he described as a spent
force and a betrayer.
He noted that Mimiko was never an ally,
and noted that he would retain his seat
without his support.
“Mimiko is not my ally. I ran against him in
2012. I ran against Jegede in 2015 with
Mimiko supporting him. How can you call
Mimiko my ally?”
The only thing is that I have treated him
fairly. No other governor has treated his
predecessors as fairly as I have treated
Mimiko. Mimiko has his own traits,” the
Akeredolu also condemned the relationship
between Ajayi and Mimiko, stating that they
are united by the same bad behaviour.
He said: “ If Agboola had done what he did
and found solace and succour in Mimiko,
that is unfortunate. It is because they
shared the same traits. People who are
prone to betraying others must come
together. They have an identical feather.
They want to work together. So why are we
worrying ourselves about them?”
Mimiko is not a political force anywhere. He
left office and wanted to go to the Senate.
He did not even win his local government
out of six local governments. So, what force
“He is a spent force. He is dead politically
and probably he needed some resurrection
and some support. If Agboola has some
money to waste, they can support him.
Mimiko is nobody in the politics of Ondo
State today and Agboola cannot resuscitate
“Let them do whatever they can do but for
them to say I am nervous about forces, they
say they are Third Force, third force from
what? They don’t exist. They exist in your
news medium only.”
I can assure you. We are prepared. This is
APC. When we are not in government,
Mimiko with Jegede, we defeated them. Why
should we be afraid? We won convincingly.
We defeated them in 14 local governments
out of 18.”
“Let me assure the people that are
watching us today that we are going to win
the entire 18 local governments. We are not
boasting. We have worked and people have
seen our work and our work will speak for
us. We are not a garden of betrayals.”
“ Mimiko can continue with what he is doing.
He worked with Adefarati, he betrayed him;
he worked with Agagu, he betrayed him.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, we all
supported him to become the governor, did
he not betray us? And you call him my ally.
We have never been in the same political
He is not my ally. I just brought Agboola
from PDP to come and work with us. If he
feels he wants to go back home, he has his
record. Tell me any person, who had been in
three political parties in one month. From
APC to PDP and to one party called Z
Labour Party. Is that a human being?”
“You can see that he is an inconsistent
person. Three political parties in one
