Ministerial nomination: Governor Akeredolu sends message to Alasoadura

The governor of the state of Ondo, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, accused the appointed minister, Senator Tayo Alasoadura, of seizing the opportunity of his appointment to strengthen the Congress of All Progressives (APC) in the state for the challenges ahead.

Akeredolu gave the advice yesterday in a statement from the Information and Guidance Commissioner, Donald Ojogo.

According to the governor, the confirmation of the ministerial candidate by the Senate would significantly contribute to bringing all those interested in the party together, regardless of the differences.

While discouraging the divisive statements that are enemies of the unit in the APC, the report warned: “When opportunities like this arise, it is likely that there will be divisions of straw mixed with the power to divide or create unnecessary chasms between leaders.

“The governor firmly believes that Alasoadura belongs to everyone in the APC,” he said. Along the same lines, the former governor of the state of Benue, George Akume, said that President Muhammadu Buhari nominated him for his next trust-based cabinet.

He spoke when he received a delegation of elders from the Kwande Council at his Abuja residence to congratulate him on his new appointment. The elders were led by APC President Benue Zone A, Vincent Uji, and party chief, Terlumun Akputu.
