Mr Isaac Kekemeke, a frontline governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state has said the people of the state and party members believe he is a worthy replacement for Governor Rotimi Akeredolu ahead of the October 10 governorship election.
He said the people are not happy with current state of things but pledged to offer them prosperity of elected as the governor.
Addressing select journalists in Lagos on Wednesday, Kekemeke, the pioneer state chairman of APC in Ondo state, said his interaction with the people of the state revealed that they are fed up with Akeredolu’s leadership and they want a new leader to steer the affairs of the state in the next four years.
On why he is interested in the race, the former Secretary to the State Government (SSG) said he has a vision to create a prosperous and peaceful state where the citizens would be productively engaged to enable them live meaningful, comfortable and decent life.
Kekemeke, who has been living in Ondo State in the last 30 years, said he is more conversant with its challenges and the path to solution.
Kekemeke said: “I am an exposed local boy who knows the challenges of the people.”
The aspirant said direct primary is a democratic option, stressing that any incumbent governor who opposes it is unpopular.
He added, ”there is a lingering problem arising from the congresses of 2018 and a direct primary will ensure that it will not raise its head after the direct primary.”
