OTUNBA Benson Bamidele Akingboye, an industrialist, is among the contestants for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket for the October 10 governorship election in Ondo State. See what he said,
I have been in the race for a long while now. I came out first in 2004. In the course of this, I have contested the governorship election once and this is my third time.
This race is not what you can run just like that. I need to let people know how serious I am to take away the mantle from Akeredolu. That is why I started very early.
If you must know, I am checking him. I read something in the papers, recently. Because I invited the Muslim community to my house, recently, to breakfast, he did same thing just few days after. He invited the same people to breakfast in his house.
I’m not at scared at all. I am not afraid because I love challenges. That is why I have consistently said that we need someone that can think out of the box at this trying moments in the history of the land.
