1 min read

Ondo state governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, is optimistic about emerging as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.


Aiyedatiwa stated this during a meeting of officials and other members of the Lucky Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organisation Foot Soldiers, LACO-FS, in Akure.

A statement by the LACO-FS Director of Information, Kayode Fasua, quoted the governor as saying “My supporters should continue working and never doubt as my coming victory in the primary and general elections is the promise of God.”

He described his predecessor, the late governor, Rotimi Akeredolu as a prophet, who foresaw that he would succeed him as the next governor of Ondo State.


“This (my emergence as governor) is what my late boss, Governor Akeredolu wanted. A lot of people don’t know Akeredolu; they don’t know that he was a prophet.


“There was a time after he (Akeredolu) returned from a medical vacation that he told the cabinet members during an executive council meeting that ‘Look, Aiyedatiwa will emerge as the next governor,” he recalled.

Aiyedatiwa said his ambition, to contest for governor beyond the mandate of his joint ticket with the late Akeredolu, was not a tour de force but a sincere mission to transform Ondo State and uplift the standard of living of its people.
