The immediate past President of the Association of Akure indigene, Asiwaju Oluwole Ademoyegun, said the choice of Adeyemi as the NNPP deputy governorship candidate in the state is a right

He noted that it is an oversight for all other parties to have neglected the choice of making an indigene of Akure speaking area their deputy governorship candidate.
