Sokoto State governor, Tambuwal has urged the Ondo governor-elect, Akeredolu to be a father to all.
The governor gave the advice in a congratulatory message to Akeredolu issued by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam, in Sokoto.
He said that Akeredolu must become a father-figure to all irrespective of political differences.
Tambuwal added that the onus lies on the governor-elect and the political class in the state to work together to propel the state to growth and development.
“At the risk of sounding repetitive, let me reiterate what I have always said that there is time for everything. There is time for politicking and time for governance.
“Now that politicking is over in Ondo, I urge all stakeholders to tailor their energy towards ensuring a successful transition leading to the swearing-in of Mr Rotimi Akeredole as the new Governor of Ondo State.”
Tambuwal also urged members of the opposition to rally round the governor-elect, to ensure peace and sustainable development in the state.
He also congratulated the All Progressives Congress for the victory and praised the Independent National Electoral Commission and security agencies for ensuring free, fair, credible and peaceful election.
“All members of the APC family look forward to working with Akeredolu as the party gives Nigerians the change and progress they yearn for,” he added.
