Addressing the controversy surrounding his West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate, the governor dismissed the claims of forgery as mere mischief-making by his political opponents who are desperate to tarnish his reputation.

“I will just advise them to repent and try to go to the field and work,” Aiyedatiwa said.

He added, “They are interested in the seat, and the seat is not vacant, that is why they are trying to do all that they are doing.

“You see, we are all indigenes of Ondo State, and we are all qualified to run to be the governorship of Ondo State, but there is a sitting governor. I have the structures; the people, and the competence.”
