Ondo guber race: I’m not aware of my purported endorsement by Tinubu —Ife Oyedele

Ife Oyedele Campaign Organization Denounces False Rumors of Endorsement by President Tinubu, Affirms Allegiance to APC

In response to report by an on-line news medium, regarding a purported endorsement that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR has endorsed Engr IfeOluwa Oyedele as the preferred aspirant in the forthcoming APC primary, the Ife Oyedele Campaign Organization has vehemently denied these rumours, categorically refuting any knowledge of such an endorsement.

The Organisation, in a statement signed by its Head, Media & Publicity, Mr. Yomi Adebayo, stated that these rumours are unfounded and intended to cause disaffection. The report is the handiwork of those of those who are jittery of the growing popularity and general acceptance of our Principal in the face of recent seamless merging of the late Dr Paul Akintelure’s group with the Ife Oyedele Campaign Organisation.

While acknowledging that the convergence of support from various sections of the Party and the generality of Ondo State citizens may have fueled these speculations, the campaign organization stressed that it is unrelated to any purported endorsement by President Tinubu.

The group said, “Engr. Ife Oyedele’s widespread popularity and acceptance stem from the evidence of his unimpeachable integrity, his concrete plans to revitalise every sector of Ondo State and his towering experience.

“We acknowledge that Engr Ife Oyedele is an unrepentant disciple of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu under whose guidance and mentorship he designed the beautiful logo of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2013.

“Our Principal has continuously demonstrated his commitment to party unity and progress by graciously and in loyalty to the party directive, stepping down in favour of the late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu during the previous election cycle, despite his obvious leading . These facts coupled with his immeasurable service to the party, instils fear in any aspirant upon entering the contest.”

The group reiterated Engr. Oyedele’s respect for the supremacy of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its leadership, including President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Emphasizing his loyalty to the party and its principles, Engr. Oyedele’s campaign team condemned the spread of false information and reaffirmed their focus on advancing the party’s agenda and the interests of the people of Ondo State.

“Engr. Ife Oyedele’s track record of selfless service and his steadfast commitment to the APC’s values have earned him widespread admiration and support across the state. As the campaign progresses, we remain dedicated to running a transparent, issue-based campaign focused on delivering positive change for the people of Ondo State,” the group declared.

The group urged the public to disregard the rumours and remain focused on the upcoming election, pledging to continue their efforts for the development of Ondo State and urging voters to choose Engr. Ife Oyedele in the primary elections on Saturday.
