– The All Progressives Congress (APC) is to hold a mega campaign rally, led by President Muhammadu Buhari
– President Buhari is to lead the campaign in Ondo alongside governors of the APC
– It is not clear if Bola Ahmed Tinubu would be part of the rally
President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC are throwing all their weight in support of Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, their candidate in the forthcoming Ondo polls.
President Buhari is to lead the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a rally for the APC gubernatorial candidate in Ondo state.
No fewer that 25 state governors of the party, Federal Executive Council, FEC members, national assembly members, ministers and other party chieftains are also expected at the rally slated for the Democracy Park, Akure.
Vanguard reports that the Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo is also expected to grace the ceremony.
It remains uncertain if the former governor of Lagos state Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Osun state governor Rauf Aregbesola and Lagos state governor Akinwunmi Ambode would be attending the rally.

This is because of the no love lost between the Tinubu camp and that of Akeredolu over his emergence as the candidate of the party.
It was gathered that buses have been sent to all the 203 wards across the state to mobilize party members to the rally.
The national chairman of the Party Chief John Oyegun will lead the National Executive Committee NEC members to the rally ahead of next week election.
Oyegun had led state governors, ministers and national assembly members to the flag off of the campaign of Akeredolu last week. Today’s mega rally would be the last before the November 26 governorship election.
President Buhari and the leadership of the party are billed to arrive the state capital by 10am.
The state governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko is expected to receive the president at the Akure Airport today, November 19.
The President’s advanced team had arrived the state capital on Thursday.
