Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has announced his intention to contest the forthcoming governorship election slated for October 2020.
Akeredolu revealed this at a dinner organised by the state government as part of the activities marking the third-year anniversary of his administration in Akure, the state capital.
The governor said he had accepted the calls from the people of the state to seek a second term in office on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
“In the past, I have not declared to contest but most of you people do say 4+4, that 4+4 is for me, therefore I have accepted the challenge to contest for the governorship again. I know you will vote for me; we will do it together,” Akeredolu said.
He further expressed gratitude to members of the state executive council, traditional rulers, religious bodies, party members and supporters for their support over the last three years.
