Aanya Igomu, Abuja

Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has congratulated the Ondo State Governor-Elect, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, saying it will use the victory to address recent issues within its fold.

The party’s National Chairman, Mr. John Oyegun said “the outcome of the Ondo state governorship election powerfully demonstrates the confidence and trust by our people in the overall leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari’s APC-led administration. The Party and the President hold sacred this trust.

With the 2016 Ondo State governorship gone, the task before the Party leadership is uniting the Party and healing wounds.”

He added that “the Ondo electorate have voted for the candidate with a proven track record of performance and who will bring about the kind focused leadership and multi-faceted development which the state deserves. The Party assures that we will deliver on this expectation.”  

The APC National Chairman equally thanked President Muhammadu Buhari and other party leaders for their invaluable support towards winning the Ondo state governorship election. 

He also appealed to the opposition parties and their candidates to accept defeat in good faith.

Ondo State in Southern Nigeria held its governorship election on Saturday, November 26 and the results to the election were announced on Sunday.
