Abuja - Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko has said that whether the All Progressives Congress (APC) picks its presidential candidate’s running mate from South-West or not, the zone will vote President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
Addressing State House journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, Mimiko said the 2015 presidential election would be about real issues and not the propaganda which, he alleged, the APC was spreading.
The governor recalled that Jonathan won in five of the six South-western states in 2011 when the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had no governor in the zone, saying, giving the long history of their progressive engagement, the people of the zone know their onions in terms of political issues.

“We’re waiting for APC to get their candidate. Don’t forget that even in 2011 when Mr. President did not have any governor in the South West, he won in all the South West states apart from one.
And I tell you, in the South West, we can sift issues from propaganda. We know the difference between propaganda and the real stuff.
“I have no doubt in my mind that the South West will vote for President Jonathan to continue along this path of very useful engagement and productive government,” the governor said.
