Speaking through the state Commissioner for Information, Mr Donald Ojogo, the governor expressed confidence that he would win the party ticket and the main election in July and October respectively.

He said, “We are not afraid of any direct primaries; the noise being orchestrated by members of the Unity Forum is to bring impression that Governor Akeredolu is afraid of direct primaries.

“I want to tell you that we will prefer direct primaries, those saying we are opposed to direct are wasting their time. We are even more prepared for direct than indirect, even more than those saying they want direct.

“We are going to the primaries to win, we are going to the election in October to win.”

On the ongoing cold war between the governor and his deputy, Mr Agboola Ajayi, the commissioner said Akeredolu had been showing good leadership quality on the matter, as he had refused the call for the removal of the deputy.
