The SA, said the governor was in a better stead to move the state to a greater height and solidify the solid foundations of developmental projects he had laid.
Speaking with Journalists as part of supportive campaign strategies for the re-election of the governor, Okun noted that the governor had performed creditably well to deserve second term ticket, stressing the reason why they should all be united and support his candidacy in order not to lose the race to the opposing parties come October 10, 2020 election.
Commenting on the insinuation in some quarters in Ose Local government that he might not work for the reelection of the governor, Olusola Okun dismissed the rumour as a political strategy to cause confusion in Akeredolu’s camp, pledging his unalloyed support for the second term project.
He said, “there is no reason for me to do that, no reasonable person will leave certainty for uncertainty, I’m sure that the AKETI 4+4 is a done deal and divine proclamation”.
According to him, Ondo State had enjoyed absolute peace under the leadership of Governor Akeredolu, especially in the area of installation of new Kings, citing Owo, Imoru, Okeluse and a lot of others in the Southern Senatorial district, noting that they were all carried out seamlessly without any crisis or rancor, unlike before.
He added that his local government, especially the Irekari axis, had a fair share of Political appointees under the Akeredolu-led administration compared to the previous administrations; and thereby assured of his commitment to ensure that the governor break the jinx of second term in the Northern zone of the state.
On the internal crisis of the party and its effects on the chance of APC during the forthcoming elections in the state, Akeredolu’s aide opined that it was normal to have political differences, but party’s interest should prevail over individuals.
Okun said: “We must put sentiment apart and join hands together to see that Akeredolu emerged as the flagbearer of APC so that we will not give it away to other political party because they are hanging around to see how the disunity brought about by the Unity Forum could affect the fortune of APC”.
The SA on Political Mobilisation, affirmed that moves were ongoing to embrace all the aggrieved members of the party, saying governor cannot satisfy the interest of all the party members at the detriment of the state, hence, the need to make them understand and support him for the second time.
Okun lauded Akeredolu’s giant strides in developing the state and for the renovation of schools in Ose, and appealed to his people to reciprocate the gesture by giving him their votes.
