Akeredolu disclosed this while fielding questions from newsmen after his presentation to President Muhammadu Buhari by Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State
He said, “I can assure you I would have been happier facing both of them together. If Eyitayo Jegede was chosen as candidate and Ibrahim as his deputy, I will still win.
“In fact, Jegede happens to be a friend, Ibrahim too. Jimoh Ibrahim went to Ife. So, we have known ourselves for long. I have no fear about both of them. We know that we are going to win this election and I have no doubt.”
The APC flag-bearer also debunked insinuation that the party national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was against his candidature: “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.”
