The Ruler’s aide on new media, Bashir Ahmad disclosed that Akeredolu met with Buhari to disclose his intention for his re-election.
Ahmad on his Twitter handle wrote: “Governor Rotimi Akeredolu was at the State House, Abuja today, to inform President @MBuhari of his intention to run for his re-election after getting his Expression of Interest forms from the APC National Headquarters.”
Akeredolu, who spoke to State House reporters after the meeting said he informed the Ruler that he was running for re-election.
The governor, who expressed confidence about winning the party primaries with God on his side, said he presented his Expression of Interest forms to the President.
Akeredolu said he believed he would be re-elected as he enjoys the support of the majority of Ondo residents.
Meanwhile, there are speculations by the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Hon. Agboola Ajayi to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC to his erstwhile party, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The speculation that Ajayi will contest against his boss, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu at the October 10, 2020 governorship polls came to fruition following secret meetings held over the weekend with some party leaders within both APC and PDP.
