…Akeredolu polled 2,458 votes
Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has emerged the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship election on Monday.
He secured aggregate votes of 2,458 to defeat other nine contestants from APC eyeing the exalted seat.
Shortly after the election, Akeredolu while reacting to the process that returned him as the APC governorship flag bearer in the coming election, he expressed confidence that he has all it takes to win the gubernatorial election in the state come October 10, 2020.
Recall that two aspirants who are Olusegun Abraham and Ifeoluwa Oyedele stepped down for the governor.
While Akeredolu in his reactions showed appreciation to the committee led by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, as well as other stakeholders of the ruling party, an aggrieved aspirant, Isaac Kekemeke condemned the indirect primaries that made Akeredolu the winner.
“For me this process is unfair. It is aimed at producing a predetermined result because all we have heard about this election had been heard through government officials, sources that are friendly or campaigning for the governor to return,” Kekemeke lamented.
Akeredolu will slug it with his deputy Agboola Ajayi who currently exists as his hottest rival in the election slated for October 10, 2020.
