Ondo Governorship Election: Another Crisis Looms in APC Over Deputy Gov. Slot

The race of Akeredolu to the Alagbaka Government House has suffered yet another impediment with a party bigwig leaving the party and another crisis over who should be the senior lawyer's running mate.
Rotimi Akeredolu
 
Another crisis is looming in the troubled All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State as some notable leaders of the party kicked against the choice of Mr Agboola Ajayi as the running mate of the party’s candidate, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, Vanguard reports.
 
This is coming as one of the frontline aspirants in the September 3 governorship primaries, Olusola Oke dumped the APC for Alliance for Democracy, AD.
 
Oke said he has the support of APC leaders to contest for the governorship election on the platform of the AD.

Meanwhile, APC leaders who kicked against Agboola as deputy governor include Hon Bola Ilori and a septuagenarian, Chief Samuel Ikujuni. They said the choice of Ajayi as the deputy governorship candidate would spell doom for the party if the leadership failed to substitute him before the deadline allowed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
 
They said: “Even when the NWC just upheld the fraudulent primaries that produced Akeredolu, the nexus of fraud in the party is trying to perpetrate another fraud to enforce the initial fraud. And while we are still on the fraudulent primaries through fake delegates and delegates’ list padding that produced Akeredolu as the candidate, another fraud is also being foisted on the party as the deputy governor. This is a man whose election was annulled by the courts for certificate forgery.”
 
They said that Ajayi should not be allowed as the running mate because he is from Kiribo in Eseodo Local Government, the same town and Council Area of the mother of Akeredolu.
 
Meanwhile, Akeredolu has been making reconciliatory moves to pacify members of the APC towards ensuring a unified house towards the November 26 election.
