Muslim-Muslim ticket: Ignore religion, vote competence - Akeredolu


Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State

Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, on Wednesday, called on Nigerians to vote for competence in the 2023 Presidential election, adding that the faith of the Vice President does not affect performance in any government.

Akeredolu, who expressed confidence that the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will rescue the nation, noted that the work stops on the president’s table.

“Muslim-Muslim Ticket has nothing to do with performance. Let’s vote for someone that can do something. The work stops on the table of the President. It is the President that you are voting for.

“He decides what happens. Whether it’s a Muslim/Muslim or Christian/Christian, it should not matter to us in the South because we fought for this.

“I have no doubt that given the opportunity, from what he has done in Lagos, Asiwaju Tinubu will turn things around for the better,” he said.

The Governor spoke at the swearing-in of two new commissioners, held at the at the Cocoa Conference Hall of the Governor’s Office, Alagbaka, Akure, the State capital.

The new Commissioners are Mr. Sowore Akinwumi Samson and Mr. Ologbese Adeboboye Joseph.

He charged them to shun distractions from members of their families, friends and political associates.

“Our resolve to protect the lives and property of those who gave us the mandate to serve was tested in a most horrific manner recently.

“Some cowards sent a message in acknowledgement of our role as a major catalyst in the renewed and determined quest to deepen the current democratic experiment in the country.

“Our stance has attracted considerable approbation among our countrymen and women, who appreciate the need for reasoned and ceaseless interventions in our bid to situate the current democratic practice within the acceptable norms in the modern world.

“We are not unaware of the enormous threat which our stance poses against the hegemonic agenda of some elements. Though shaken by the scope of the horrendous crime, we remain unbowed and focused,” he said.
