The senator who represents Ondo South, Jimoh Ibrahim, says the passing of the former governor of the State, Rotimi Akeredolu, could potentially enhance his prospects of becoming the next governor.
Ibrahim made this statement during a conversation with journalists in Akure on Thursday.
The senator observed that the unfortunate passing of Akeredolu would not have a negative impact on his prospects, but would instead enhance his likelihood of succeeding in both the primary and governorship election.
He said, “Maybe the death of Aketi has enhanced my chances because Aketi is a human being, he can be subjectively objective at the last minute. But now that he is no more, that possibility is written off completely. So whoever is there, wants to run for governor will meet me at the field.
“So Aketi’s death doesn’t affect my chances at all, but it would rather enhance my chances to win the governorship position of this state. So we are working seriously to win this election.
“Among the contestants, I am the oldest. I have contested election twice in my lifetime, one of which I contested for governorship position in 2003, and none of these contestants was on that ballot,” he said.Get a premium automobile insurance coverage for your vehicle for as low as #15000 only and claim up to #3,000,000 in damages @Zenith Insurance To signup: WhatsApp/Call: +2349028313757
