Ondo 2024: I’m better than Aiyedatiwa as APC candidate — Ex-NMA President

Prof. Dayo Faduyile, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, said he has better qualities than Gov. Lucky Aiyedatiwa to run the affairs of the state.

This is as he said he would be a better candidate than Aiyedatiwa.

Faduyile stated this on Thursday in Akure while declaring his intention to run for the office of the governor of the State in the Nov. 16 gubernatorial election.

He said to face the incumbent governor in a primary of the party would mean he had to be more focused, adding that he was not in the race to negotiate.

The former Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) president said he would engage in youths, invest more in sports and improve tourism with hospitality business in the state.

Faduyile said the leadership of the party could adopt any mode of primary, adding that anyone that wanted to aspire must be ready for any of the election process laid down by the party to emerge.

“I contested in 2020 against the incumbent then. So it is not a new thing for me to contest against an incumbent.

“But in 2020, I collapsed my structure with the incumbent. The only superior argument that made me do that was because of the agreement on zoning in the state. For every other reason, I was adamant.

“Now it is the South by providence or otherwise, the governor is no more, and the deputy has now become the governor, and he is from the South.

“The question is, should I just bury my interest or ambition? The answer is that if you are very confident in what you want to say to change the narrative, you will still contest it.

“Even when Aketi was contesting, I still contested against him.

“If our party now says this is the person they have picked and it is not me, that I’ll go to another party or go and disrupt the process, the thing is, while you are planning your own, you look at the positive side.

“The second one is for you to be picked either by ballot, consensus, or imposition, but it is left for you to elect yourself, and this is what I’m doing, but I know God is on my side; if it is by direct delegate, I’ll emerge.

“And if it is by imposition, that imposition will be Professor Dayo Faduyile.

“To face an incumbent governor, you have to put in more effort. I want to also wish my brother, Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, luck in his campaign, but look at us together; I’m better than him in many ramifications,” he said.
