Group Disowns Oke Over Support For Aiyedatiwa

The campaign group of Chief Olusola Oke SAN has dissociated itself from the endorsement of Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa as the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The campaign group under the auspices of “Movement For Truth” said it was not part of the decision of Chief Oke to collapse his campaign structure for Aiyedatiwa.

In a statement signed by Dr Benson Enikuomehin, Mr Kayode Mogbojuri, and Otunba Steve Omogbemi on behalf of the group said they would not be part of the decision to support the governor for the November 16 governorship election in the state.

The campaign group said, “The decision of Chief Olusola Oke, SAN to collapse his political structure for his brother, Governor Lucky Ayedatiwa does not enjoy the endorsement of our team ” Movement For Truth”.

“Chief Olusola Oke SAN as a Nigerian citizen has his unfettered right to support whoever he desires in the forthcoming Ondo State Governorship election in November.

“Our organization worked for Chief Olusola Oke SAN, but will not allow itself to be led by the nose to support the candidature of Governor Ayedatiwa.

Our team therefore dissociates itself from the decision taken by Chief Olusola Oke, SAN. While we respect his view, we also expect him to respect our position on the matter.

“We maintain that no primary election was held on April 20, 2024, by APC in Ondo State. We made it known to the whole world that it is the only righteousness that can exalt a nation, a fortiori any organisation, or a political party. We as a group cannot be speaking from the two sides of our mouths.

“Flowing from the above, we remain committed to what is just, fair, equitable, and of sound mind in our pursuit of who should be the Governor of Ondo State.

“Now that Chief Olusola Oke SAN is out of the way, we shall chart a new course, but not the unrighteousness Marmon.

“We shall address a Press Conference where our positions will be made categorical and unequivocal.”
