Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has congratulated his Ondo State counterpart, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, over his electoral victory at the Supreme Court.
Abiodun, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Thursday, described Akeredolu’s triumph at the apex court as a well-deserved victory for democracy.
The governor said that though he never doubted the victory of the Ondo governor at the governorship poll, his pronouncement by the court as the duly elected governor actually showed that people of the state cast their votes for Akeredolu, popularly known as ‘Aketi’.
While saluting the steadfastness and firm belief of chieftains and members of the APC in Ondo State, Abiodun urged Governor Akeredolu to embrace all indigenes and residents of the state, irrespective of their political leaning.
He further urged residents of Ondo to rally round their governor in his bid to continue the delivery of good governance and efforts to turn the state around for better.
