Ahead of the gubernatorial election in Ondo, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on Wednesday, July 29, finally made his choice on his running mate.

A native of Ilaje local government area, Ayedatiwa was a commissioner in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), The Nations reports.
The governor in a statement confirming the development said that Ayedatiwa has been in the political journey since 2012 and that the choice came after much consultations with party leaders in the state.
Akeredolu said: ”A candidate with verifiable credentials and pedigree has been chosen to complete the last part of the gubernatorial race.
We may not have chosen a saint and the best but let it not be said that we, either wittingly or otherwise, settle for an avowed hater of human beings and good things, an enemy of his own people and a serial forger. We owe our people the duty of care in this regard.”
