Published

on

Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has described the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, as the “Capone” of the party in South-West.

He reiterated the stance of the southern governors to demand a presidential candidate of the party from the region, saying: “Our stance is for equity and justice.”

The governor, who spoke during a monitored interview session with Reuben Abati on Arise TV, yesterday, also justified his visit to Tinubu in London ahead of 2023 presidential election.

He said: “ I am an APC person and I have said it over and over that I won’t leave APC. Once I am through, I am going back to my chambers where I find more comfort. So, whoever the APC brings, I will support.

“For the national leader, we are waiting for him to come so that critical decisions could be taken. He is our leader in the South and the one we can call our Capone.”

“I’ve moved to where I think the process might allow me.

Published

on

Deji Adeyanju, an Abuja-based rights activist, has suggested why the All Progressives Congress, APC, is yet to conduct the screening of its presidential candidates 48 hours to the party’s primaries.

Adeyanju said APC is waiting for the outcome of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries.

He alleged that the APC is afraid that the PDP may pick a Northerner as its presidential candidate; hence the delay.

In a post on Facebook, Adeyanju wrote: “48hrs to APC primaries, no screening of candidates or any single direction because they are so afraid PDP may pick a Northern candidate.

“That’s why they are waiting and going round and round. They are just waiting for the outcome of PDP primaries then in hours they will act.”

APC convention for the presidential primary will be held as scheduled from Sunday, 29th to Monday, 30th of May, 2022.

The PDP presidential primary will be held at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on May 28 and 29.
