The people of Ondo state, especially supporters of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu have been advised to igmore the rumours being circulated in the social media that the Governor has been disqualified from participating in the July 20 primary election by the screening committee.
Ojo Oyewamide, Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, who gave the advice through a statement Saturday, said there is no iota of truth in the story.
According to him, the story was written and circulated by expert falsehood crafters that are willing to sell even their blood relations once money is dropped on the table.
“This is yet another distraction unleashed with the aim of deceiving the unsuspecting public and diverting attention from the self-imposed pains on the part of those behind the story. It is clearly, coming from those who have chosen the perfidious political path
“Governor Akeredolu is not just participating at the Party Primary; he shall be re-elected by the Grace of God come October10, 2020.
“The Governor therefore, appeals to all his supporters to ignore the rumour and dedicate this period to God for His continuous grace, favour and protection.
“It’s a ploy to distract you. They are scavengers and will stop at nothing to sustain their trade of deceit. Ignore them. Remain firm. Be dedicated and be prayerful”, the statement quoted Governor Akeredolu as saying.
