National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and five state governors were part of a group of politicians present in Akure on Wednesday for the second term inauguration of Ondo Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
The state gvernors at the inauguration include: Godwin Obaseki (Edo); Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti); Gboyega Oyetola (Osun); Dapo Abiodun(Ogun) and Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos).
Also at the inauguration were former Interim National Chairman Chief Bisi Akande; former Ogun Governor Sen. Ibikunle Amosun; former Senate President Ken Nnamani; new APC chieftain in Osun Sen. Iyiola Omisore and former National Vice Chairman (Southwest), APC Chief Pius Akinyelure.
Guests applauded the presence of Obaseki at the International Culture and Event Centre, Akure, venue of the inauguration.
Obaseki defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2020 election. Akeredolu is of the APC.
Obaseki’s defection followed his disqualification to contest for the governorship by the APC screening committee for the election.
Obaseki eventually won the election on the platform of the PDP.
Akeredolu assured that his administration will not depart from the trodden path which has earned him affection and deep reverence from the citizenry.
While noting that he came on board with the resolve to confront all challenges without let, Governor Akeredolu said even though his administration is yet to reach the set goal, he was confident that his administration is on the right path.
The Governor assured that he will continue, with more vigour, to justify the trust earned by his administration, with emphasis on energy as part of the reasons for the review.
