The governor of Ondo state, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has expressed his concern over the decision of the Muslim- Muslim presidential ticket by the All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
The governor delivered his remarks on Sunday during the 40th Holy Ghost Convention Dinner hosted by The Sword of the Spirit Ministries.
The event took place at the International Conference Centre, the University of Ibadan in Agbawo, which is located in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.
The governor said, ” I discussed with Bishop Francis Wale Oke that presidency must come to the South. Take it or leave it, it is the minimum we can get. It must come to the South. The North cannot produce President for eight years and still want to retain it for another eight years. It is not going to work.
That is why under the Southern Governors’ Forum, where, luckily, God made me the chairman, kept hammering on that. It must come to the South. And when it also got to our party in APC, we fought that it must come to the South.
Luckily, it did not only come to the South, it came to the South West. Now, where do we stand? I understand our feelings because I’ m one of you. I am a Christian. All of us here are worried. What will be our gain, and that, why is my party, the APC throwing up a Muslim/Muslim ticket? ” he said, according to a statement by the governor’ s Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde. ‘ ‘
