Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim, the ejected Ondo state PDP governorship candidate has congratulated Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), APC’s governorship candidate who out of 17 the Local Government Areas already announced won 14.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has out of the 18 Local Government Areas announced the result of 17 Local Government Areas.
With Akeredolu gaining 213,686 votes so far while Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) , PDP governorship candidate has received 121,471, a gap which is considered as unassailable by observers.
Mr. Ibrahim, even while INEC is yet to declare Akeredolu as the governor-elect congratulated Akeredolu in a statement thus:
“My dear egbon. Congratulations. I have computed the results sent to me from 2907 wards by my party agents across Ondo State.
It shows you are leading with unrecoverable margin. I congratulate you as governor-elect of our lovely state.
I will advise you quickly maintain distance from Mimiko if you want to succeed.
“I have no doubt that you will urgently create hope for our people; kindly do
whatever you can to assist your lovely civil servants.
I saw poverty in those villages I visited during campaign.
Please kindly assist traditional rulers as much as you can.”
