President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said he was looking forward to a free and fair governorship election in Ondo State on Saturday.
He said he was looking foward to the emergence of a true representative of the people of the state.
Buhari said this in a statement made available to journalists by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
The President used the statement to again campaign for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
He urged the people of the state to go out on Saturday and cast their votes for “change.”
He said, “The right to vote is not only a civic responsibility, but also the opportunity to determine the course of our lives as a people. A vote for the All Progressives Congress in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Ondo State is a vote for progressive and people-oriented policies.
“Since the creation of Ondo State in 1976, the people of the state have contributed immensely to the growth and development of Nigeria, especially in the domain of agriculture and education.
“A vote for Rotimi Akeredolu, a renowned lawyer of guileless reputation who rose to the peak of his profession as the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, is a vote for the continued development of Ondo State.
“President Buhari looks forward to a free and fair election and true representation for the good people of Ondo State.” (Punchng.com)
