Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, on Wednesday, disclosed that he has no plan to contest the 2023 presidential election.
While distancing himself from promotional activities linking him with the 2023 presidential polls, the governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, said his principal had nothing to do with the pseudo campaigners.
According to him, the moves by the pseudo campaigners were needless distraction.
In the last two weeks, the social media space in the state had been flooded with campaign posters and fliers of Akeredolu urging him to contest the 2023 presidential election.
The poster and flier which have been circulating on the social media, also had Mai Mala Buni, the Governor of Yobe State and the Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee as his prospective running mate.
Akeredolu’s spokesperson in the statement said his principal’s competence is not in doubt, but the recent campaign by an unknown person does not represent the governor’s immediate political disposition.
Olatunde added that Akeredolu who had just been reelected, is only focused on deepening good governance for the people of Ondo State.
