Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State on Wednesday, called on Nigerians to vote for competence, adding that the faith of the Vice President does not affect performance in any government.
Akeredolu, who expressed confidence that the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will rescue the nation, noted that the work stops on the President’s table.
“Muslim-Muslim ticket has nothing to do with performance. Let’s vote for someone that can do something. The work stops at the table of the President. It is the President that you are voting for. He decides what happens. Whether it’s a Muslim/Muslim or Christian/Christian, it should not matter to us in the South because we fought for this.
“I have no doubt that given the opportunity, from what he has done in Lagos, Asiwaju Tinubu will turn things around for the better, ”he said.
The Governor spoke at the swearing-in of two new Commissioners, Sowore Akinwumi Samson and Ologbese Adeboboye Joseph in the state.
He charged them to shun distractions from members of their families, friends and political associates.
The governor said he was excited to have personalities imbued with the requisite capacity for the advancement of the cause of good governance.
He stressed that his administration will always be bold to demand commitment and loyalty which must be absolute, adding that his administration commenced a political journey on the path of rectitude.
