Ondo 2020: Why I can’t be Running Mate —APC Guber Aspirant, Adetula

By: Ade Adeleke

One of the governorship Aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2020 election in Ondo State, Barr Bukola Adetula, has dismissed a rumour that he has accepted to be the deputy governorship candidate of the party.

Adetula, one of the 10 aspirants jostling to pick the ticket of the party for October 10, 2020 governorship polls, said those afraid of his popularity were spreading the rumour of him accepting to be a running mate.

Adetula stated this a Press Statement personally signed by him and made available to SUNSHINETRUTH in Akure yesterday.

According to him, “this is to set the record straight as regards my gubernatorial ambition. I reliably gathered by information reaching me that some individuals who are threatened by my profile and in a bid to smear my image have started peddling the rumour round the State that I have accepted to be running mate to a certain aspirant.

“This is to state emphatically that the rumour is nothing but a figment of the imagination of those who are not comfortable with the progress we have made so far.

“Please discountenance the rumour as it is baseless and unfounded. I therefore appeal to all our supporters to keep faith in our project and continue sharing our aspiration with the good people of Ondo State.

“My governorship aspiration is intact and I strongly believe we shall get there by the grace of God. I remain the credible alternative,” Adetula said.
