The Lawmaker, representing Ose/Owo Federal Constituency, Hon Timehin Adelegbe has distanced himself from the poster with his image indicating interest to contest the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Ondo State.
In a disclaimer statement made available to JATS Online News by his Special Assistant on media, Wale Akingbade, the Lawmaker described such act as a falsehood taken too far.
According to him, the intention of the mastermind behind the poster was to create disunity between him and the sitting governor, and therefore, urged the public to disregard such information.
“Otunba Adelegbe wishes to inform the general public to disregard the poster as this is not only petty, immature and incoherent, but a falsehood taken too far, as he does not have any intention to run for the Governorship seat in the next election, more so, not against a performing Governor like Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, who still has a lot to offer the people of Ondo State.
“Otunba Adelegbe believes that these mischief makers are set to cause disunity and disaffection between him and his Oga,boss,the Governor , with whom he has a robust mutual relationship.They have failed!!!.Aketi 4+4 is the answer.
“The lawmaker wants the people of Ose/Owo Federal Constituency and Ondo state in general to support Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN for second term in office, in order to complete the good works he is doing in the state”, the statement reads.
