Odere said although the death of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, the late Governor of the state was acutely shocking, having shown significant evidence of recovery at some point, but the good people of Ondo State should take solace in the fact that the late governor left behind an unprecedented legacy.
“Your Excellency, the Senate President His Excellency Godswill Akpabio hopes that now that you are the father of the state, you will use this exalted position to play the fatherly role of bringing together all dissenting voices within the party in the state so that Ondo State can remain united and progressive under the governance of APC,.
“A political house that’s divided against itself cannot win a state-wide election,” the aide to the Senate President said matter-of-factly” Odere said.
In his remarks, Governor Aiyedatiwa expressed his appreciation to the Senate President for commiserating with the good people of Ondo State through him as “this shows that Senator Akpabio is truly a caring man and a leader deserving of his exalted position.”
The Governor added that APC will win the next governorship election. “APC will not lose Ondo State because I will ensure that the mantra of APC of Renewed Hope is fulfilled by embarking on people-friendly programs that will touch the common people of Ondo State to alleviate poverty, improve security, boost healthcare and other people-oriented programs during my tenure as their governor. I can assure the Senate President of that,” the governor declared.
