Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has urged the people of Akoko South-East/South-West Federal Constituency to reciprocate the good gesture of former Governor Adebayo Adefarati by voting his son, Gboyega Adefarati, to represent the constituency.

Akeredolu, who made the appeal, yesterday, while addressing the people of Akokoland, said the best honour for the memory of the late governor of the state, is to vote for his son who is aspiring to represent the good people of Akoko in the National Assembly.

He said: “This is Gboyega Adefarati, our next member House of Representatives for Akoko South East/South West Federal Constituency from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“When you see his face, you should know he looks exactly like his father, the former governor of Ondo State. That is the son of ‘Baba Peace’ (late Chief Adebayo Adefarati).

“Nobody can ever be in doubt of the statesmanlike leadership that Adebayo Adefarati displayed as the Fourth Republic governor of the state. He has to his credit the relocation of the first state-owned Ondo State University from its old site in Ado-Ekiti to Akungba-Akoko in 1999.

“There is nothing else we can do to pay back what Baba Adefarati did for the state and Akoko than to vote for his son, for him to also serve the people of Akoko and continue where his father stopped in making Akoko land a better place.

“Baba Adefarati served as our governor in Ondo State and performed excellently.
