Ten people in Ondo South Senatorial district have signified their intentions to vie for the deputy governor position of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, in the forthcoming elections in Ondo State.
The party has picked the former president of Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu as its flag bearer, but, the party is yet to decide who to pair Akeredolu with as running mate.
Among those vying for the deputy governorship seat are former Chairman of Ondo State Oil Producing Area Development Commission (OSOPADEC), Chief Adewale Omojuwa, Nimbe Tawose, Otunba Paul Akintelure, Chief Lucky Ayedatiwa, Chief Oloyede Ogunbanjo, Mr. Adebambo Odoro, Erelu Modupe Johnson, Mr. Wale Akinterinwa and former Senior Special Assistant to late Chief Adebayo Adefarati on Niger-Delta matters, Chief Wole Iroaye.
It was gathered that the contenders had made their intention known in separate letters written by their supporters and sent to the state and national leadership of the ACN.
Already various pressure groups in the state have been mounting pressure on the leadership of the party to zone the position to Mahim in Ilaje local government.
