The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has described Ondo Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s re-election as a vote for good governance, industrialisation, security, empowerment and general welfare of the state.
It said Akeredolu’s reelection was a testament to the inclusiveness, genuine reconciliation and peace the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker Committee has ensured among party ranks in Ondo and the party in general.
A statement by the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretar, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja, on Sunday, thanked Ondo residents for coming out enmasse to vote for it’s candidate on Saturday.
It reads: “The All Progressives Congress (APC) thanks the people of Ondo State for coming out enmasse to reelect H.E. Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, incumbent Governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Saturday’s Ondo State Governorship election.
“As a party, while we thank the Ondo electorate for voting for good governance, industrialisation, security, empowerment and general welfare of the state, we will continue to advocate for and support safe, free and credible elections that guarantee that valid votes count and the people’s will prevail.
“The APC particularly thanks President Muhammadu Buhari as leader of the Party and Governor Mai Mala Buni as Chairman of the Party’s Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee for rallying our supporters, members and leaders, particularly our governors in total support of our governorship candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu.
“We also recognise and appreciate the tireless efforts of the Ondo State APC Reconciliation Committee chaired by the Governor of Niger State, H.E. Abubakar Sani Bello and the APC Ondo State Governorship National Campaign Council chaired by the Governor of Lagos State, H.E. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.”
