Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has called on the people of the state not to allow the struggle for the southern presidency to fail.
Akeredolu said that since the North had produced the president for eight years, it was the turn of the South to occupy the presidency.
He added that the nationwide acceptability enjoyed by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, was a signal of victory in the coming election.
Akeredolu made the call at the APC Ondo North Senatorial campaign rally held in Owo.
The governor assured that the country would flourish under Tinubu if elected as president.
He explained that no amount of gimmicks and conspiracy could scuttle the victory of the party’s presidential candidate, adding that Tinubu was a man whose time had come.
“Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu is tested and trusted. He has been governor of Lagos and we know how he transformed the state. I can assure you, Nigeria will move forward under Tinubu as president,” he said.
The governor urged the people to go out en masse to vote for the APC from Tinubu to the House of Assembly candidates.

Akeredolu called on the people of Owo, Ose and Akoko to vote massively for the senatorial candidate of the party, Pastor Jide Ipinsagba, adding that his experience in the private sector would help him deliver on his mandate if elected.
He also urged the people to drum support for all the House of Representatives candidates of the party.
The governor said Mr Bunmi Tunji-Ojo, Timehin Adelegbe, and Asiwaju Adegboyega Adefarati, as House of Representatives candidates, would bring quality representation to the people of their federal constituency.
