Oyetola will regain mandate soon – Akeredolu

The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Saturday, expressed optimism that his Osun State counterpart, Adegboyega Oyetola, would emerge victorious at the tribunal.

Akeredolu spoke in Owo at the funeral service of his late mother, Grace, saying Oyetola would “regain his mandate very soon whether you like it or not. He is a man after my heart.”

The Osun governor is challenging the outcome of the July governorship election in which the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ademola Adeleke, emerged as the winner.

Akeredolu was responding to the sermon given by the Anglican Bishop of Owo Diocese, Stephen Fagbemi, who charged the politicians to begin their campaign tours in hospitals.

The Bishop said, “Go to hospitals and schools and see what Nigeria is like. I encourage you to go to the FMC here in Owo to campaign and see what the future holds. The poor are getting poorer. Nigeria needs a change that will ensure safety and security in villages.

“We need a government that understands economy. Life is hard in this country. Let our leaders be careful to help us move things forward. The best place to start campaign is in the hospital.”

Akeredolu, while responding, said, “We have listened to your political sermon. It was wonderful listening to the sermon. I will not contend with you but I know as politicians we are doing our best. It might not be good for everybody.

“You should also say the things we have done. Continue to pray for us so that we will do our best. We will look at it. It is not that we are not trying. We have our shortcomings. We have crops of politicians in the Southwest we can be very proud of. Not all of us shall die. We shall be here when Christ shall come.
