President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Governor Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, on his re-election as Governor of Ondo State
Akeredolu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, won in 15 of the 18 local government areas of the state while his rival, Eyitayo Jegede of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP won the remaining three.
He polled a total of 292,830 votes to defeat Jegede who scored 195,791.
Reacting, Buhari in a statement by his Spokesman, Femi Adesina noted that the votes garnered “show that one good turn surely deserves another.”
He thanked the people of Ondo State for keeping faith with their Governor, and the All Progressives Congress (APC), adding that “the people know the person and party that truly serves them, and have spoken in a clear voice and unmistakable terms.”
The statement added that ”Buhari appreciates the electorate in Ondo State for comporting themselves decently and in order, and for exhibiting conduct that indicates that the country is making progress in its electoral behaviour.”
He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for organizing a credible, free and fair election and the security agencies for ensuring that orderliness was enthroned and maintained.
He urged Gov Akeredolu to be humble and magnanimous in victory, and serve the people of Ondo State even better than how he did in the first term.
