The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Mr Ade Adetimehin, on Monday, called on the supporters and leaders of the party in the state to ignore speculation that President Muhammadu Buhari will be voted against in the state during the forthcoming presidential election in the country.
Adetimehin who stated this in Akure, Ondo state capital, while addressing the leaders of Presidential Support Committee of the Buhari/Osibanjo 2019, at the State Secretariat, assured that Buhari, would record resounding victory during 2019 general elections in the state.
Adetimehin said the combination of Buhari and Yemi Osibajo has saved Nigeria from political and economic crisis and expressed the readiness of the party in the state to support them in their re-election bid.
He said “In 2015, Ondo State delivered 55 per cent for Buhari; in 2019, it is going to be over 80 per cent because President Buhari has impressed us, and we have a governor who is totally committed to the President’s re-election project”
He charged the group to take their campaigns to the local government and ward levels for effective mobilisation while he urged them to see the PVC as their foremost electoral tools in returning Buhari as president in 2019.
He pledged the support of the State chapter to any group that is genuinely working for the victory of the party and its candidates for 2019.
Earlier, the group’s Director of Contacts and Mobilisation in the South West, Alhaji Garba Gonia, said the group was put in place to compliment the party structures at various levels.
Commending the State Chairman for granting audience to the group within a brief period, Gonia lamented the crisis that rocked the party after primaries but praised the leaders for the quick reconciliation panels.
“The beauty of democracy has its roots in the majority, hence the support group before you today will surely add to this beauty in the State, South West and Nigeria in general “, he said.
