The Minister of State for Niger/Delta Affairs, Tayo Alasoadura, says the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede, is “merely wasting his time”.

The minister, a native of Iju/Itaogbolu in Akure North Local Government Area of the state, declared, said Ondo Governor and the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, is the candidate to beat in Akure North and South LGAs.

Jegede, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, hails from Akure South.

Addressing a crowd of party supporters in Ogbese and Oba Ile in Akure North on Saturday, Alasoadura said “Akeredolu is the preferred candidate of Akure people”.

He said, “I am an Akure man and I can say very confidently the position of Akure people. Our candidate in Akure Kingdom is Akeredolu because we love justice and equity.

“Akeredolu is from the North. Akure is from the Central. The central just completed eight years, the North should be allowed to complete their eight years. When next the position comes back to the central, Akure will take the spot because Mimiko has used the slot of the Ondo Kingdom.

“Besides, my brother, Jegede is merely wasting his time. We shall defeat him in the two Local Governments in a level playing ground. Akeredolu is the man to beat in the two Local Governments in Akure kingdom.”
