The Ondo State Governor’s son, Babajide Akeredolu, has come out on Friday to boast that power isn’t something that gingers the Akeredolu family.
Naija News reports that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s son came out to clear the air about rumours making rounds that he plans to take over from his father after the end of his tenure.
According to him, it is not in his plan to take over from his father after the expiration of his tenure because he has a lot of options where he could venture in to become extremely successful than being in government.
Babajide Akeredolu, who is currently a Special Adviser and Director-General, of the Performance and Project Implementation Unit at the Office of the Governor of Ondo State, told pressmen at a briefing in Lagos that he is not looking forward to being governor, rather he is looking for how to make young people thrive.
The Ondo governor’s son submitted that “I don’t have any plan to run for office. It is interesting people speculate this, but I have multiple pathways to success. I don’t need to stay in government to be successful.
“Power is never something that gingers the Akeredolu family. I’m not looking for that (governor’s seat), but I’m just looking for opportunities to make young people thrive.
“I have never thought of being a governor. That thing is stressful and I don’t want to go through it. People that are built for that, I wish them well.
“There are multiple cards to success for me. I am lucky I have a strong surname with a lot of options before me. So, I really don’t bother about what’s coming next, but I just focus on the present and how I can help the younger generations.”
