feoluwa Oyedele has squashed allegations that he collected huge sums of money to step down for Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
APC aspirant denied the allegations while addressing hundreds of his supporters in Akure, the Ondo state capital.
Oyedele said he stepped down for the greater interest of the All Progressives Congress and the citizens of Ondo State ahead of the Ondo 2020, adding that his interest, is the rebuilding of the APC and unity of the people across the state to ensure economic development.
The APC governorship aspirant assured his supporters that he would not abandon them as he is a man of integrity, adding that what he negotiated with Akeredolu was the future of the state and the betterment of its people.
Oyedele said he told Akeredolu to develop the blueprint for the development of the state so that future generations would have a guaranteed future,
His words: “My interest is that we must rebuild the APC in Ondo State. We must unite all our people so that we can ensure economic development. WE must continue to work for the interest of the people of the Ondo State.
“Akeredolu has promised that he will work to correct what he did in the past. He apologised to everybody he may have offended through his actions. He has promised to correct things he did in the past and he has promised not to victimize anybody who did not support his second term bid. Who wants to go court must ensure success of the party.
“We will rally citizens of Ondo State behind Akeredolu. No leader of the APC will look me in the face and offer me anything that is going to be of my own benefit. I am a national leader of this party. All those in the negotiation table acknowledged that fact.”
