APC sends Akeredolu’s name to INEC

Akeredolu was chosen to represent the APC in the governorship elections after winning the party primaries on September 3.

Rotimi Akeredolu - APC guber candidate in Ondo state

The APC governorship candidate announced that his name had been submitted via a statement released by his campaign office on Thursday, September 22.

According to the statement, Akeredolu said:

“What can I say than to thank God who has done it again. God does not abandon his projects notwithstanding the challenges that may arise. The NWC struck out the report of the appeal committee which had earlier recommended the cancellation of the September 3 election.”

“The party’s apex decision making organ averred that Appeal Committee’s report was prejudicial and largely perfunctory as its decision was based on unsubstantiated allegations and spurious claims of electoral manipulations.”

“I make bold to say to my co-aspirants in the APC, that we are all winners. None is vanquished. We are all victors. None is a loser,” he was quoted as saying.

“I hold the ticket of party in trust for all of you. I am not perfect. No one is. But I will make up for my imperfections by drawing from your collective strength. Together we shall work in one accord to achieve success in the November 26 governorship election.

“Now is the time to pull our energy and resources and rescue our state from misery and misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party-led government. United we stand. United we shall be victorious.”

The Ondo governorship elections will expectedly hold on November 26.
