A governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Olusola Oke, has given seven days ultimatum to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to conclude all reconciliation efforts with a view to uniting all aggrieved members of the party.
Chief Oke said the APC would defeat the opposition Peoples Democratic Party with a landslide victory if all groups within the party are united before the elections.
Oke who came a distant second behind Governor Akeredolu at the primary of the APC said the primary was slanted to favour the Governor.
He spoke after a meeting with members of his campaign organisation who also double as the Unity Forum members of the Ondo APC.
Chief Oke stated that he opted to participate in the primary to debunk prediction by critics that he planned stepping down for Akeredolu or that he lacked resources to prosecute the primary.
Oke said he and his supporters would be ready to participate in any reconciliation efforts genuinely undertaken by the leadership of the party from the National, to the Zone and to the state.
He said any reconciliation that would be acceptable must be the one initiated by Governor Akeredolu but finalized with the participation of the national leadership of the APC.
