Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Ondo State governor, Olurotimi Akeredolu on his victory in the gubernatorial election held in the state on Saturday.
The party, in a statement signed by its spokesman, Hon Seye Oladejo described the victory as a referendum of the good people of Ondo State on the sterling performance of Governor Akeredolu in his first term in office but to the consternation and bewilderment of his political opponents.
The statement reads
“Lagos state APC wishes to congratulate Governor Olurotimi Akeredolu on his re-election as the executive governor of Ondo state.
The victory is a referendum on his sterling performance in the first term to the commendation and appreciation of the good people of Ondo state, but to the consternation and bewilderment of his political opponents”.
“His victory is a further testimony of Ondo state as progressive that is desirous and deserving of good governance”.
“The majority endorsement of Akeredolu is a challenge to build on his past achievements and address the yearnings of the people.
The victory of the ruling APC shows that the opposition is no match whenever we have all hands on deck working for the overall interest of the party. It reinforces our conviction that the loss of Edo state was an own goal which is not beyond redemption in the near future”.
“By the same token, we congratulate Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu who as the chairman of the Ondo state Campaign council for Governorship election brought his Midas touch to bear to ensure the desired result”.
“Hopefully, governance which has literally grounded to a halt in the opposition PDP states as a result of their governors’ desperation to snatch victory in APC states will now mercifully resume”.
