Ondo guber tussle: APC lauds judiciary over judgement

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo has  commended the Honourable Justices of the Supreme Court for a sound judgement on the State governorship election petition.

The party  urged the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to appeal to the Privy Council of the United Kingdom, where the party and its governorship candidate take exception to the collapse of their petition.

According to a statement issued by the party’s  public secretary, the APC rejoices with Governor,  Akeredolu and his deputy,  Lucky Ayedatiwa, and all the residents of the Sunshine State for this popular affirmation of the people’s mandate.

The statement reads, “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 affiliation


“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 ”
