“l can always tell you, people who know me, they know that I talk most times with some confidence, let me assure you here that by the grace of God, we will win the election in Ondo state,’’ Akeredolu told State House correspondents.

“I don’t have any rift with him, since the primaries you would see that as leaders of the party,he has not said anything about it, he has accepted the primaries and we are moving on.

“So, I don’t have any rift with him at all and we are moving on.”
