Pastor Adewale Giwa, the senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ in Ondo on Saturday revealed that no politician outside the state could determine the fate of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s second term ambition.
The respected man of God stated that the only factor that would ensure if the governor deserves a second term will be his achievement during his first tenure in office.
This is in reaction to viral reports that Akeredolu second term bid is not supported by some leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, at the national level. The clegy said no godfather outside the state can impose anybody on the electorate.
Let me remind them that they did it to the ex-governor Olusegun Mimiko in 2012, but they failed. They failed because the people of Ondo State were pleased with the achievements of Mimiko.
“Governor Akeredolu doesn’t need a prophet to tell him to go for a second term or nor. If he had rendered good services to the people of Ondo State, his achievements will speak for him when the time comes. He is the governor of Ondo State, not a governor in Osun, Ogun or Lagos State.
“Let me state it emphatically that politicians are just fighting for themselves, not the interest of the people. Akeredolu should sit back and ask himself whether he is for the people or for himself or for some certain politicians. If the governor is for the people, he will shun the antics of politicians and work for the people he governs.
“Right now, it is early for me to say that the governor has done well or not. The majority people of Ondo State will make their decisions on that. The governor is running a technocratic government.”
In other news foremost International Human rights organisation, known as the Amnesty International has issued a stern warning Rotimi Akeredolu, Governor of Ondo State, not to authorise the execution of prisoners on death-row.
In the statement which partly reads below.
“The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, must not authorize the execution of any death-row prisoner and if he has already authorised executions must immediately revoke it.
“Amnesty International is extremely concerned that executions may resume in Nigeria. On 27 March 2019, the press reported that the Ondo State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Adekola Olawoye, stated that the Ondo State Governor will commence the signing of execution warrants. Since the declaration was made Amnesty International has received a report that the Ondo State Governor may have signed executions warrant.
“Governor Rotimi Akeredolu must recognize that the death penalty is a cruel punishment that has no place in the 21st century and we ask him to respect the right to life.
