It read, “The All Progressives Congress in Ondo State is saddened over the death of one of its gladiators, Dr. Paul Akintelure. He was a governorship aspirant, getting ready to participate in the party’s primary slated for next month.

“Akintelure was a highly refined and consistent political figure whose position was that the essence of being in politics is to build the people and the land.

“The contributions of the departed political leader to the development and stability of Ondo State chapter of APC will not be forgotten. Like other governorship aspirants, he was optimistic of victory, come April. He had many other plans, but death was never part of them.

“The state chapter condoles with the immediate family, Igbotako community, his political associates, and the Nigerian Medical Association. May his soul rest in peace.”
