The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  reports that 36 persons  emerged as members of the  newly constituted APC state executives.

Addressing   party members on behalf of the other executives,  Adetimehin  expressed gratitude for being given the opportunity  to lead the party in  the next four years.

He promised to ensure sanity and discipline in  the state chapter of the party, adding that  his administration would  support the governor in delivering the  dividends of democracy  to the  citizenry.

Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State  urged  the new executives  to work tirelessly in ensuring that the party achieves success in the 2019 general elections.
