I congratulate Rotimi Akeredolu who emerged with 669 votes at the primary election of our great party, the APC, in Ondo state.
My special regard and admiration for Alhaji Baderu Abubakar, the Governor of Jigawa state, and his team for their sterling quality and integrity in conducting the APC governorship primary in Ondo state.
I also thank my teeming supporters for showing maximum solidarity throughout the campaign till now. I am not unaware of the pain you feel right now; with so much fervor, you all took our message of industrializing Ondo state to every nook and cranny. Thank you.
I pray that our God will bring the much-needed prosperity we seek to Ondo state in earnest.
I will not turn my back on my loving people of Ondo. I will continue to contribute my quota to the development of our state in any way God directs.
The APC is a party consistently determined to bring prosperity and good governance to the people of Nigeria, and I will ever remain loyal to our party, together with its ideals and principles.
Long live Ondo state.
Long live the APC.
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
