The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has set up a five-man committee to screen the prospective Deputy Governorship candidate for the party and recommend a prospective running mate for its Governorship candidate, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN).

The Committee, which has the daughter of the first civilian governor of the State, Mrs Jumoke Anifowose, as the chairperson, also has Dr Tunji Abayomi, Hon Victor Adekanye Olabimtan, Dr Ayo Akinyelure, Mr Bankole Oluwajana, Dr Shaba and Mr Wale Akinterinwa as members.
Already, 16 persons including the surrogate Deputy Governorship candidate, Hon Agboola Ajayi have shown interest in the slot opened to Ondo South and Central Senatorial district.
Out of the 19 prospective candidates, 13 are from the South while the other six are from the Central district. The party will either pick from the South or Central senatorial district as the governorship candidate, even though Akeredolu is from Ondo North Senatorial District.
