The leadership of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), on Monday, said there was no going back on the planned regional integration of the South-West region of the country.

The party also expressed its readiness to ensure that Ondo State is not left out of the arrangement.

The national leader of the party, Senator Bola Tinubu, the national chairman, Chief Bisi Akande and the governors elected on the platform of the party said this in Akure, the Ondo State capital at the final rally of the ACN towards the governorship election in the state.

While noting that governors elected on the platform of the party had been giving purposeful leadership in their respective states, Tinubu said there was the need for the people of Ondo State to vote for the party to make integration and even development of the South-West region possible.

The former Lagos State governor also berated the Labour Party (LP) and Governor Olusegun Mimiko for the style of leadership in the state in the last three and a half years.

He reiterated his stand on Mimiko, saying he is a traitor and an ingrate that failed to show appreciation for what he did for him.

He also warned against rigging and violence on Saturday, saying the ACN was ready to win the election in a free and fair situation.

Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola, noted that this was the right time for all the states in Yorubaland to come together.

According to him, regional integration as being planned by ACN was to make the South-West  great again.
