The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo has hailed the judgment of the State Governorship Election Tribunal, describing it as victory for the people of Ondo State, who abandoned everything on October 10, last year, to cast their votes.
The party congratulated ts Caretaker Committee Chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, its candidate for the election, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, his running mate, Hon. Lucky Ayedatiwa, and all the teeming supporters of APC in Ondo State. They have all been vindicated by the sound judgment.
The party in a statement issued by his Publicity Secretary, Alex Kalejaiye said, “We commend the Tribunal for being dispassionate, and objective in considering all the arguments, and counter- arguments assembled before it, while the trial lasted.
“The party further showers appreciation on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), for sticking to what is fair and reasonable.
“The party wonders how a candidate that scored 3 over 18 in an examination could expect to be declared successful, adding “the People’s Democratic Party wanted victory through the backdoor”.
“It advises the main opposition party to accept the judgment in good faith, and join hands with the ruling party for the purpose of fast tracking economic and infrastructure development of the Sunshine State.
