BREAKING: Akeredolu emerges APC governorship candidate in Ondo


Ondo State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu emerged the All Progressive Congress (APC) nominee for governorship in the October 10 governorship election.

Akeredolu was declared the flag bearer of the party, having won the highest number of valid votes at the party's primary election held Monday at the International Conference Centre, Akure.

At the end of the exercise, which lasted for several hours, Mr Yahaya Bello, Chairman of the Governorship Primary Election Committee who is also the Governor of Kogi State, declared the results.

Three of the aspirants to governorship; Messrs Jimi Odimayo, Ife Oyedele and Olusegun Abraham had withdrawn from the race and endorsed Akeredolu before the start of the election.

After careful consultation with party leaders and stakeholders from both inside and outside the state, the three aspirants said they took the decision, adding that they were persuaded that Akeredolu had all it took to win the October 10 governorship election.

Chief Olusola Oke, Sola Iji, Isaacs Kekemeke, Olaide Adelami, Mrs Jumoke Anifowose, Nathaniel Adojutelegan and Bukola Adetula were other aspirants who took part in the primary election.

Akeredolu, who polled the highest number of votes in all the state's 18 local government areas, was overwhelmingly voted for by many delegates as he defeated his closest competitor, Chief Olusola Oke, with more than 50 per cent.

While urging all aspirants who took part in the election to support the party's candidate in securing the party 's victory in the governorship election, Bello said the election result showed Akeredolu's level of acceptance by party members in the state.

During the exercise, strong security personnel had raided the primary election venue for forestalling crisis.

The election was supervised by the security personnel including Nigeria Police Force, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) and Department of State Services (DSS) officials numbered over 1,000.

Describing the election as a free and fair one, Governor Bello said committee members were fair to all the aspirants who took part in the election.
