Barring any last minute change of mind, the executive members of the Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will meet with the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinibu, this week to seek his support for the APC governorship candidate in the state, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
The proposed meeting, according to a reli-able source, is part of last minute efforts by the APC leadership in the state to ensure that they get Tinubu’s support for Akeredolu in the November 26 governorship poll.
The source who is a former executive member of the party said Ondo APC is worried about the division in the party after the crisis that trailed the party’s governorship primaries.
“Ondo APC needs the support of Tinubu to win the governorship election and that is why some executive members of the party are planning to meet him this week. The motive of the meeting is to pacify him to support the party in the governorship election.
The executive members will visit Tinubu this week to beg him. But the challenge is that he may not listen to them because Ondo leaders are not being carried along in the plan. “It will be better for them to carry some Ondo leaders, especially those Tinubu have respect for so that they can persuade him to support APC in the governorship election.
No matter how rigid Tinubu may be, he still has respect for some people and I believe that if those people talk to him, he will listen and have a rethink about his opposition to Akeredolu’s emergence as APC candidate in Ondo State.” The source told New Telegraph.
