National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu said Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu’s first-term achievements and unity within the APC’s ranks led to Akeredolu’s victory in Saturday’s gubernatorial election.
He stated this in a congratulatory statement he personally signed.
Tinubu appealed to the governor to justify the confidence reposed in him by Ondo people by surpassing his first-term performance.
“I congratulate Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) for his well-deserved re-election as governor of Ondo State.
“This victory in a peaceful, free, and fair process is a testament to Governor Akeredolu’s sterling first-term performance and an affirmation of the confidence reposed in him by the people of Ondo.
“In his first term, Governor Akeredolu erected important structures, embarked upon road infrastructure and focused on projects like the Ore Industrial Hub, in a bid to create empowerment and employment for the people.
“It is now incumbent on him to repay the people’s faith by building on the achievements of his first term and bringing further tangible improvement to the lives of the people of his state,” Tinubu said.
Similarly, he congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari, all the APC governors, and in particular, the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who served as the Chairman of the APC National Campaign Council for the Ondo State Governorship Election.
