“No vacancy in Ondo Govt House” – Gov Aiyedatiwa tells opponents ahead of APC primaries

Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State has asserted his readiness to retain his position, emphasizing that there is currently no vacancy in the Alagbaka government house.

Speaking to journalists after undergoing screening by a 5-man committee set up by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Aiyedatiwa urged his opponents to focus their energies on fieldwork rather than attempting to undermine his candidacy.

He stated, “I should just advise them to repent and try to go to the field and work. If they are interested in the seat and the seat is not vacant, that is why they’re trying to do all that they are doing.

“You see, we are all indigenes of Ondo state, and we are all qualified to run to be the Governor of Ondo state, but there is a sitting Governor. I have the structures, the people, and the competence.

“Within the few months that I assumed office, they have seen clearly that this is the best man for the job. Yes, because of the peace in the state and some of the programmes that have been rolled out to the people.

“In fact, like I said the other time, my coming out to continue as Governor of Ondo state wasn’t borne out of my own ambition or desire but because of the yearnings and aspirations of the people.

“The endorsement of the traditional rulers, the students, artisans, everybody; the community leaders, even the civil servants, everybody is happy with the current state (of affairs); peace and security for the day people and they are going about their businesses without fear.”
