One of the All Progressives Congress governorship aspirant in Ondo State, Paul Akintelure is dead.

Alex Kalejaye, the spokesman of the party in the state confirmed his unfortunate death.

Though, while the cause of his death is still sketchy, Akintelure’s death came days after the medical doctor turned politician raised an alarm about threats to his life.

He had expressed hope that the situation would improve with time, but unfortunately, it intensified as the APC governorship primary poll set for April 25 approached.

Akintelure in a statement released by his spokesman, Oladapo Akintelure, on Thursday, March 21, 2023, said, “Initially, I hope these incidents would dissipate over time, yet regrettably, they have escalated to pose a serious threat to my life”

“The threats against me only strengthen my resolve to stand up for what is right and just. I will not allow fear to dictate our path forward.

“Let us embrace peace, progress, and unity. Our collective strength lies in our to stand together as one, regardless of our differences.”

The late Akintelure had in 2012 ran as the deputy governorship candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) with Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.

Before then, he contested for the Ondo South senatorial election also under the ACN.

He was a Lagos-based private medical practitioner who hailed from Igbotako in Okitipupa local government area of Ondo State.
