APC UK Says Akeredolu Is For Ondo State Not Just For A Political Party


The All Progressives Congress (APC) United Kingdom Chapter has said that the re-elected Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is for the people of the state and its development and not just for the political party.

The chapter said this in a statement issued by Mr Jacob Ogunseye, its Publicity Secretary on Sunday in Abuja while congratulating Akeredolu who was the APC candidate at the election for emerging victorious.

The APC UK charged those who contested the election with Akeredolu to join hands with him for the progress and development of Ondo State.

It urged other contestants at the election to be gracious in defeat, stressing that in every contest; a winner must emerge and should be supported by others in the spirit of good sportsmanship.

“Other leaders who contested the election with Akeredolu should put the past behind and work with him for the progress of the state as he continues with the progressive agenda of taking the state to the next level of prosperity.

“We want to appeal to the opposition contestants that the re-elected Governor, Arakunrin Akeredolu is for the state and not just for a political party,” the APC UK said.

It, however, charged the re-elected Governor to be magnanimous in victory and to work harder in his second term as governor in consolidating the good works he had started in the state.

It congratulated the people of Ondo state for their wise decision in renewing the mandate of the governor to continue providing and solidifying on his previous giant strides.

According to the APC UK, Akeredolu’s developmental strides have taken the state to an enviable position in the country.

The statement commended Mr Ade Omole, the leader of APC UK and Mr J.K Adebola, chairman of APC UK For Aketi campaign council for their contributions to the party’s electioneering campaigns and the eventual electoral victory of Akeredolu, the Ondo State incumbent governor.

It attributed APC’s success at the election to the robust approach provided by the governor to solve the perennial problems created by past administrators of the state.

The statement quoted Omole as saying that he was very sure of Akeredolu’s victory in the election.

“I knew Ondo indigenes would renew the mandate of Arakunrin. No one would vote out a performing governor like Akeredolu for an untested hand.

“It is obvious that Akeredolu has done more than his predecessors looking at the period he has governed the state.

“His achievements in the areas of industrialisation and infrastructural development have formed a solid base from which others should emulate.

“His efforts to date, especially ongoing scheme to secure the state at this present time is undeniable, and we hope to see more of these in years to come,” Omole said.

He added that the people of Ondo state should be accorded accolades for Akeredolu’s giant strides and for deciding to stay with the APC, saying that they would not be disappointed.
