The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has commended the Justices of the Supreme Court for a sound and faultless judgment on the State governorship election petition.
A statement issued by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Alex Kaleijaye urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join hands with Governor Akeredolu in moving the state forward.
The statement reads: “The party is thrilled by the resolve of the apex court to uphold the decisions of the lower courts on the petition. The truth is always constant.
“The chapter rejoices with the Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, his deputy, Hon. Lucky Ayedatiwa, and all the residents of the Sunshine State for this popular affirmation of the people’s mandate.
“The APC family expresses profound appreciation to all the parties and stakeholders, including the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the legal teams, chieftains of the ruling party, and the electorate, for their contributions and support while the legal battle lasted.
“The party enjoins the governor and his deputy to put the legal gymnastics and distractions behind them, and focus on their selfless approach to governance, in the interest of every resident of the state, irrespective of party affiliations.
“While sympathizing with the PDP over internal crisis rocking the party, the Ondo APC challenges the PDP to reorganize itself so it could present a productive opposition to the performing government.”
