FORMER chairmen of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State have thrown their weight behind the ambition of a governorship aspirant, Dr. Olusegun Abraham, saying he has excelled in all the parameters of consideration. A former party chairman in state, Comrade Sola Iji, said the decision to pick Olusegun Abraham came after an assessment and consideration of the aspirants for seven months.
Iji said “The unanimous decision to adopt the candidacy of Dr. Olusegun Abraham was finalized on the 30th of March this year, after we confirmed from assessment that he is the only candidate that excelled in all the parameters of consideration.”
“Among the gubernatorial aspirants contesting for the ticket of our party, it took us some time to come to the carefully thought-out decision to support the aspiration of Olusegun Abraham to serve Ondo State. We have informed the party and also mandated them to identify with this decision.”
Also, a former chairman of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Chief Adesola Adesoji, said the group’s decision to support Abraham was based on the conviction that he has the experience and ability to truly transform the state.
