I Will Not Let You Down - Akeredolu Tells Ondo People

Winner of the just concluded Ondo State governorship election and incumbent governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has vowed to justify the confidence reposed in him by work assiduously in the overall interest of the people.

Akeredolu made this vow on Sunday at his Owo residence while addressing party faithful and journalists moments after he was declared winner of the polls.

He said: “We will put in everything to justify the trust reposed in us. The people will continue to be the centre of all decisions as you note in our speeches.”

“We will proceed with our administrative style which promotes transparency and accountability. We are determined to set our state on a progressive path of real development.

Akeredolu renewed his administration’s commitment to serving the people better via economic development, adding that Ondo state “has no business with poverty.”

He appreciated the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for their support while promising to provide purposeful leadership for the next four years.

The governor also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his ideals to promoting democratic processes in the country.

“Let me thank Mr President and the Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari for the support and love. I salute his courage in the defence of the tenets of democracy.

“I also acknowledge my brother, the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo for his support. Let me also acknowledge the unflinching support of our National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Posterity will remember all of them for good,” he said.

Akeredolu also showed a degree of magnanimity in victory as he praised one of his main challenger for the post, Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for his conduct during the election. He described him as “a worthy adversary.”

Akeredolu said Jegede has the love of the people in his heart, adding that Ondo State is privileged to have someone like the PDP candidate.

It will be recalled that Akeredolu was declared winner of the keenly contested gubernatorial polls after he polled 292,830 votes and won in 15 of the 18 local government areas in the state.
