Like Akeredolu, Makinde disowns presidential campaign advert

Gov Makinde

Oyo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has disown an advert announcing his interest in 2023 presidency.

Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, had had to do same some days ago, saying he was not ready for such.

Among South-West governors, only Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti is believed to be intertested in the game.

Reactng through his Chief Press Secretary Taiwo Adisa on Monday, Makinde said: “It is the usual practice of naysayers and detractors to seek to mix sour grapes in the basket of fruits, at a time when well-meaning citizens are celebrating the victory of the state football club that has just been promoted to Nigerian Premier Football League.

“Let it be stated clearly, however, that Gov. Makinde has no hand in any such campaign for the presidency, as he has always stated that tomorrow only belongs to God.

“It is unthinkable that the governor, who has cautioned supporters against mounting a second-term campaign for him, would launch a 2023 presidential campaign at this period.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Makinde will not change his belief that power belongs to Almighty God and that only God knows the direction He is taking every of his creation,” he said,

Adisa said the media office of the governor had not, and would not race ahead of time to promote an ambition that the governor had not declared.

“Therefore, we urge members of the public to ignore the fake news,” he sai
