Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, has announced a former state representative on the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Lucky Ayedatiwa as his running mate.
The state’s governorship election is slated to hold Saturday 10th October 2020.
Akeredolu announced the name on Wednesday at the swearing-in ceremony of a new commissioner, Idowu Otetubi, in Akure, the state capital.
He told the gathering that he chose Ayedatiwa after he had consulted widely with stakeholders, especially the leaders of the All Progressives Congress in the state and the national body.
Ayedatiwa hails from the riverine Ilaje Local Government Area of the state.
Recall that Akeredolu’s estranged deputy, Agboola Ajayi had defected to the Peoples Democratic Party where he contested for the governorship ticket but lost to Eyitayo Jegede(SAN).
Jegede was a former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in the state.
