Ondo 2024: Why I Stepped Down For Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa- Tunji Rhema

Ahead of the November 16 Governorship Election in Ondo State, one of the Aspirants eyeing the ticket of the All Progressive Congress, Dr Tunji Rhema- Moyero has stepped down and declared for the incumbent governor of Ondo State, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

Addressing the mammoth crowd that witnessed the declaration in Ore, Odigbo Local Government, Dr Moyero said the exceptional leadership qualities of the governor within few months in office formed part of the reasons he decided to drop his governorship ambition and supported him.

While urging his teeming supporters across the 18 Local Government and LCDAs to support the governor for continuity, Moyero said among the aspirants vying for the party ticket, Governor Aiyedatiwa is the man to beat.

His Speech at the declaration:

In the short tenure of Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, I have witnessed a leader of exceptional character, an outstanding performer who is seeking to continue the developmental strides of our late Governor, Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN. His dedication to the well-being of our state, his measured approach to governance, and the wisdom he brings to the table have profoundly impacted my decision to step down and declare my support for him.

Let me be clear: my decision to step down from the race is not borne out of fear or inadequacy. It is, instead, a testament to the power of recognizing the exceptional leadership style and achievement of Mr Governor within a short time; the genuine counsel and advice from recognised elders and political leaders within and outside the state that we share the same political ideology: and my commitment to putting the needs of the people above my ambition.

It is on these grounds that I have decided to drop my governorship ambition and declare my absolute support for Governor Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa beyond 2025.

I am declaring my support for a man who has a good blend of what Ajasin, Adefarati, Agagu, Mimiko and Akeredolu represented by ideology.

I am stepping down for an administrator who is not only cool, calm and courageous but has the leadership skills and qualities to move this state to higher level. Believe me, Orimisan will deliver.

I am supporting a man whose decisions, actions and programs are guided by public interest, genuine love and concern for the masses.

I’m here before you to throw my weight behind a good listener, deep thinker and a great teacher. A leader with great empathy, accessibility and simplicity. These you can’t take from Gov. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa.

My fellow aspirants and citizens of Ondo State, let us rise above the divisiveness of campaigns and embrace the opportunity for unity and cohesion within the party and under a leader who embodies the true values we hold dear. Together, under Governor Aiyedatiwa’s leadership, we can build a more prosperous, equitable, and vibrant Ondo State for ourselves and generations to come.
