The successful lawyer who flew the party’s flag during the last gubernatorial election in the state has, through his Aketi Organisation has also informed all his followers and admirers that he is steadier and focused than ever to lead them to the land of promise.

He also expressed optimism that he will clinch the party’s ticket to contest the November 26 governorship election.

Addressing a crowd of APC supporters who thronged his country home in Owo, Akeredolu thanked leaders of the party from the 18 local government areas who accompanied him on a tour of the state’s 203 political wards.

Entitled “One on One with Aketi”, the tour was designed by the Aketi Campaign Platform to ensure physical interaction between Akeredolu and the party delegates ahead of the governorship primaries.

The aspirant answered questions from party loyalists and gave insight to his vision for the state. The tour, which was rounded off in Owo, also witnessed a lot of dances, drama and open endorsements. For instance, son of the late Governor Adebayo Adefarati, Otunba Gboyega Adefarati, declared publicly that his family had thrown their political weight behind Akeredolu.

The younger brother of late Governor Olusegun Agagu, Pastor Femi Agagu, also announced the support of the Agagu political family for Akeredolu’s governorship ambition. Other politicians who accompanied Akeredolu on the tour include two-time member of House of Representatives, Hon. Ifedayo Abegunde, two former commissioners in the government of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, namely former Commissioner for Finance Wale Akinterinwa, and former Commissioner for Forestry and Natural Resources Prince Solagbade Amodeni. Others include two former commissioners in the late Agagu led government, Boye Adegbemisoye and Laitan Ayeni.

Akeredolu promised to take the state out of its beggarly predicament by taking full advantage of the enormous resources available in the state and vowed not to disappoint the people.
