A former Commissioner for Finance in the state, Mr. Wale Akinterinwa, has declared that he would be the next governor of the state, saying he was the anointed candidate of late governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
Akinterinwa, who was among the members of the State Executive Council that was dissolved last week said he was ready to slug it out with the incumbent Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
Akinterinwa said, ”The late Governor Akeredolu had a discussion with me in his office and he told me he would want me to take over from him. I didn’t take particular notice of the date he had the discussion with me but it happened immediately after he came back from his trip to Germany.
