The All Progressives Congress (APC) flag-bearer in the upcoming Ondo governorship election, Akeredolu Rotimi said he does not have any issues with the party's National Leader, Bola Tinubu.

Akeredolu said this on Monday, October 31, 2016, while speaking to newsmen after his meeting with President Buhari.

He said “I don’t have any rift with him. Since the primaries you would see that as leaders of the party, he has not said anything about it. He has accepted the primaries and we are moving on. So, I don’t have any rift with him at all and we are moving on.”

Akeredolu, who was visibly elated, said all the issues surrounding the APC primary election, has been settled.

He also called on security agencies to stop miscreants from disrupting economic activities in Ondo state.

The APC guber candidate also said “What the party said in Ondo state is that we were calling on the security apparatus of the state to be up and doing so that they don’t allow miscreants to take over because for instance as a governor you encourage lawlessness or people in the guise of protest because what the PDP has is a problem within the party. That should not lead to demonstration outside and you know that people are not demonstrating for any reason but because they have been more or less paid to come and do it.

“What we said is don’t allow miscreants to be out , as it could lead to, nobody can control the end of such demonstration. So, it’s not that we are afraid but we fear for the life and property of the people of Ondo state”

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ forum has alleged that the APC is planning to rig the forthcoming governorship election.
