Aiyedatiwa rallies APC leaders, stakeholders, call for unity —

Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has stressed the need for unity among members and leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state for the party to be formidable ahead of the forthcoming November governorship election.

Aiyedatiwa, who stressed that a cohesive and united front is essential for achieving common goals, said that the party remains a united and indivisible family, regardless of individual ambitions and differences.
The governor disclosed this during the party’s stakeholders meeting held at the weekend, which was attended by leaders of the party from the 18 local council areas of the state.
Describing the primary election as a family affair, he urged every member to support one another in unity, reaffirming their collective responsibility in working towards victory for the APC.

He said: “While we may have disagreements at times, it does not mean we are not part of the same party. Let us work together for our victory on November 16. Our party members need continuous encouragement, not just during election periods. Everything I have promised will come to fruition; they are not just mere words. In this administration, it is action over words.
“Considering our current position, it appears we have already won the battle due to our hard work, but there is no room for complacency. I encourage our party leaders to return to their respective local governments, put in even more effort, and unite everyone,” he added.
On his part, the APC state chairman, Ade Adetimehin, emphasised that every political party has its own constitution and rules that all members must follow.

“The primary was merely an in-house affair; now is the time for unity. Together, we are strong; divided, we are weak. We must pool our strength. One person cannot achieve this alone, which is why unity is essential. We need to be sincere with one another, as that is the essence of politics,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the people of the Ayeka community in the Okitipupa local council area of the state have pledged their support for Aiyedatiwa and his administration.
The community leaders, led by Rtd. Gen. Joseph Oluyemi, endorsed the candidature of the governor for the November 16 governorship election in the state.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the governor in Akure, Bajowa said the governor has done more than enough to earn the trust and support of the people of the state.
He said, “We are here on behalf of the entire Ayeka kingdom to pledge our unalloyed support and to congratulate you on your excellent governance in the state.
“We want to specially commend your leadership style and the remarkable progress and peace that you have brought to Ondo State. We stand firmly behind you.”
Bajowa also informed the governor that the Ayeka kingdom has been under the rule of a regent for many years and urged the governor to intervene in the process to expedite the installation of a new king.
