Chief Olusola Oke: APC won’t impose any candidate on Ondo

An All Progressives Congress
governorship aspirant in Ondo State, Chief Olusola Oke, has said the
party has no plan to zone the governorship ticket of the party to any
senatorial district.
He also said that the party would not
impose any governorship candidate on the party during the forthcoming
primary of the party.
Oke spoke at Okitipupa, the headquarters
of the Okitipupa Local Government Area, on Thursday, during a meeting
with his supporters ahead of the governorship primary of the party.
He said the party’s candidate for the
November governorship election would emerge through the party’s primary,
stressing that the party would not also impose any of the aspirants
despite the insinuations in some quarters.
The former candidate of the Peoples
Democratic Party in the 2012 governorship election in the state told the
APC members that he was well suited for the ticket in view of his wide
experience and qualities which he said none of the other aspirants could
match.
He said “Already, my ongoing tour of
local government areas has been witnessing defections of people from
other political parties, especially from the PDP, to the APC. If I get
the APC ticket today, you can imagine what would happen. The PDP will
collapse finally in the state.
“I am loved and accepted by the people
across the length and breadth of the state and across party lines. My
emergence will deliver the state to the APC.”
Oke noted that the high number of
quality aspirants jostling for the APC governorship ticket was as a
result of the people’s quest to replace the present PDP government in
the state.
He added, “The choice of the right candidate, who can win the election for the party, lies with the delegates.”
During the tour, some former members of
the PDP in the Okitipupa council area defected to the APC, saying they
were ready to join hands with the APC towards moving the state forward.
