The runner-up in the September 3 essential race of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Dr Olusegun Abraham, yesterday denied the report that he is in support of the APC governorship candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN). He asked his supporters and the general population to separate themselves from any data or endeavor to confound them and influence their conviction, by wrongfully guaranteeing “that I am considering a move to work with or support Rotimi Akeredolu”.
“I, Olusegun Abraham, have not thrown my weight behind Akeredolu or any other person(s). I remain solidly behind the people of Ondo State and vice versa and I strongly believe that justice will be secured soon enough.
“Any rumour stating such is a product of deliberate deceit and a selfish attempt to confuse the people. “The matter seeking the reclamation of my mandate, which is the mandate of the people, is in court, with another hearing slated for November 10. I’m standing firm on getting justice, not only for myself or the members of the APC, but also for the people of Ondo State, who have earnestly shown their desire for good governance by embracing my candidature.”
