Ajayi-BorofficeThe Senator representing Ondo North, Prof. Ajayi Boroffice, has urged members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State to discountenance rumours making the rounds on the purported endorsement of any of the party’s 25 governorship aspirants.

Some members of the party, including some governorship aspirants, had raised alarm over the purported endorsement of a particular candidate by a national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Although Mr. Tinubu denied imposing a particular candidate as his preferred choice on the party, he insisted that he would not be denied his inalienable right to choose who to support to emerge as the APC flag bearer for the November 26 polls.

The purported endorsement of one of the aspirants has already divided the Ondo chapter of the APC with the state chairman, Hon. Isaac Kekemeke, allegedly ‘impeached’ by some persons, who accused him of acting a script written by the national leader.

However, in a statement he issued in Akure, the state capital, by his media aide, Kayode Adeniyi, the senator and Ondo APC governorship aspirant, described the rumour of endorsement as needless distraction that would never aid its promoters.

He urged the party’s 3,000 delegates to remain vigilant and steadfast as some desperate politicians might have ignited the rumour in an attempt to derail APC’s focus on free, fair, credible and transparent primary election.

Boroffice said he got assurances from Mr. Tinubu, former interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande and party leaders in the Southwest geopolitical zone that there was nothing like anointed aspirant or endorsement.

The Asiwaju of Akokoland said: “As an aspirant and democrat, I have had intimate interactions and engagements with party delegates over the years”.

“The support I enjoy from them is reassuring.  No distraction, whether calculated or accidental, can derail our focus on August 27, the scheduled date for primary election. My supporters and I are ready to participate and win”.

Sen. Boroffice, therefore, called on party loyalists to comport themselves and ensure that the desired change in governance needed in the state is realised from February next year.
