Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has charged minister-designate, Senator Tayo Alasoadura, to exploit the opportunity of his appointment to strengthen the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state for challenges ahead.
Akeredolu gave the advice in a statement yesterday by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo.
According to the Governor, the confirmation of the ministerial nominee by the Senate would go a long way in bringing together all stakeholders in the party, irrespective of differences.
While advising against divisive utterances inimical to unity in the APC, the statement warned: “When opportunities such as this come, there are bound to be straw-holding cleavages laced with the potency of further dividing or creating needless gulfs among leaders.
“The governor believes strongly that Alasoadura belongs to all in the APC,” he stated.
In the same vein, former governor of Benue State, George Akume, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari nominated him into his next cabinet based on trust.
He spoke when he received a delegation of elders from Kwande Council in his Abuja residence to congratulate him on his new appointment.
The elders were led by the chairman of APC, Benue Zone A, Vincent Uji, and a party chieftain, Terlumun Akputu.
Akume disclosed that many individuals, particularly from Benue, fought hard to stop his nomination into the cabinet, but for the trust Buhari has in his person.
