A governorship aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Dr Bode Ayorinde has insisted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not in government in Ondo State, rather it is the Aketi Team faction of the APC.
”I insist APC is suffering from lack of cohesion which has made its house divided against itself”, he said.
Ayorinde who was reacting through his Senior Media Aide, Olusegun Adebumiti, to a press statement credited to the Ondo State chapter of the APC, said the party is only trying to run away from facts which are audible to the deaf and visible to the blind.
“Ordinarily I would not have dignified the Statement of one Alex Kalejaye, for he is too naive and junior to know my contribution to APC before I left the Party when its ship was sinking. This short response is to honor the good people of Ondo State who are being misled in all fronts by the Aketi Team faction of APC.
“The Army of eminent Leaders of APC in the Unity Forum, who are all sidelined by Aketi Team is very instructive, no wonder the Party lost the last Federal election woefully to the gain of PDP which I now proudly belong.
“In case the party has forgotten, when President Muhammadu Buhari was in Ondo state recently on a state visit, where were the eminent leaders of the party? Who were the leaders of the party that received him? These are just few pointers to the insurmountable challenges of APC.
”My interest in the Governorship race is to provide jobs and create wealth for our people so that Ondo State will migrate from being a civil service state to an industrialised state, I will therefore not be distracted by the rantings of the tenants of a sinking ship” he said.
