Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, Governor, Ondo State and Chairman, Southern Governors’ Forum, has described as an “expensive joke” the announcement of Senate President, Ahmed Lawan by National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu as the presidential consensus candidate of the party.

In a statememt on Monday he personally signed, the governor said that “the speculation is rife that the Chairman took a flight of fancy and decided to make a pronouncement beyond his competence.”

“He has, allegedly, made public his preferred choice as the candidate of the APC for the Office of the President in the next general elections,” he added.

Continuing, Akeredolu, said: “This alleged pronouncement runs contrary to the position of majority of Northern Governors in APC and their counterparts in the South. Our agreement is unanimous on this issue. The office of the President should be contested for by qualified persons from the Southern part of the country if the move to get a consensus candidate fails. There has been no shift from this settled issue.”

According to the statememt, “the Chairman or anyone who holds a contrary opinion does so at a personal level. He is at best embarking on a frolic which reasonable people will consider dangerous.”

“We are grieving but have not forgotten that Power MUST shift to the south. On this we stand,” he said.
