The Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, Isaac Kekemeke, says the party is the only veritable alternative to rescuing the state from its present economic recession.
While appreciating the people of the state for their massive support for the party, Kekemeke said the development is responsible for the high number of aspirants hoping to win its governorship ticket.
The APC chieftain, who is a former Secretary to the State Government (SSG), spoke while receiving a governorship aspirant and Senator representing Ondo North, Prof Ajayi Boroffice, at the party’s secretariat in Akure, the state capital.
The lawmaker was on hand to formally inform the party hierarchy of his intention to contest the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state.
Confident that the party is poised to wrestle the state from the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Kekemeke thanked Boroffice for the visit. He commended him for his mature handling of the controversy over the alleged rancour among the party’s governorship aspirants.
Promising that the party would provide a level playing field for all the aspirants, the APC chieftain urged them to campaign as team players, noting that the main goal of the party is to win the forthcoming governorship election in the state, regardless of who is the party’s standard bearer
