The Ondo State Governor-Elect, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN has promised to support whoever emerged as the All Progressives Congress, APC, flagbearer for the 2018 governorship election in Ekiti State.
He made this know while receiving members of the Bayo Orire Campaign Organization (BOCO), Ekiti State, who paid him a congratulatory visit in Owo recently.
The Campaign Organization had asked the Governor-elect to support Dr Adebayo Orire, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the APC in the State whenever the primaries come up.
Akeredolu promised to work with whoever emerge as the party's candidate.
He said: "I will work assiduously to support whoever emerge as the party's candidate. I know Ekiti will join APC states by the grace of God but I know that there is much to be done.
"Let us put it in the hands of God, so whoever He chooses we will support. We owe Ekiti a lot and we are going to support the state in all things".
The former Nigeria Bar Association President also said seeking political office should not be a do-or-die affair as God crowns whom he chooses and He knows the height which every ambitious soul can attain in life.
"There should be no desperation in seeking political office. When I contested in 2012, God said it was not yet time, and we waited until His appointed time, so here we are today.
"I know who to run to, I know who has the final say and only God has the final say, so let us take our case to God. He crowns whom he chooses to," he said.
Earlier Reverend (Dr) Bayo Orire, who is eyeing the Ekiti Governorship seat congratulated the Governor-elect on his victory at the recent Ondo Governorship polls.
Reverend Dr Orire who stated that Akeredolu has gone through the most rigorous campaigns, enjoined him to beware of praise singers and relate with the people well.
"You should beware of praise singers and how you relate with the people, because your success will depend on how you relate with the people.
"You have made a name for yourself before and you must also strive to do that now".
