Governor Rotimi Akeredolu said he is not interested in the 2023 presidency despite several campaign posters indicating he would be contesting.
According to the campaign posters, which flooded Ondo streets, Akeredolu would be running alongside Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni.
However, a statement signed by Akeredolu’s Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, said the posters are a needless distraction.
The statement said Akeredolu who was re-elected as governor for a second term wants to focus and improve good governance.
“Undoubtedly, the development is no less a needless distraction. Even though Mr. Governor’s constitutional right, qualification, and competencies are not in doubt, this particular campaign does not represent in any manner, his immediate political disposition.
“For emphasis, Governor Akeredolu who has just been re-elected wishes to be left to focus on deepening good governance in Ondo State,” the statement further reads.
