The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday rejoiced with the government and people of Ondo State over the Supreme Court decision upholding the victory of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in the last governorship election in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by the National Secretary
Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), APC, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe.
The apex court had earlier dismissed the appeal by Eyitayo Jegede and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on the grounds that it was incompetent.
Akpanudoedehe said the Akeredolu administration is now poised to redouble the tempo of quality service delivery and consolidate its giant strides in the critical areas of education, healthcare delivery, infrastructure development, security, youth empowerment and industrialization.
He also said, “For many residents of the Sunshine State who joked that Akeredolu has turned the state into a busy construction site, it rings true for a man who is truly passionate about the development of his independent-minded, enlightened and progressive people and state.
“Governor Akeredolu has followed up his people-oriented policies with several other developmental inititiatives which are returning Ondo State to its deserved status and consolidating on the landmark and progressive legacies of late Chief Michael Adekunle Ajasin, the first civilian governor of the state.”
