I’m shocked I lost 3 LGs in Akure – Akeredolu gushe

Published

on

Newly re-elected Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has expressed satisfaction with the outcome of Saturday’s governorship poll in the state, Themoneymetrics reports.

Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress polled 292,830 votes to defeat the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Eyitayo Jegede, who scored 195,791 votes, and Mr Agboola Ajayi of the Zenith Labour Party, who recorded 69,127 votes.

Akeredolu won in 15 out of the 18 local government councils of the state.

The governor, however, expressed shocked to have lost the three local government areas in the state capital – Akure South, Akure North and Ifedore.

The governor, who spoke on Channels TV on Monday, said winning in 15 local governments out of 18 was a slight improvement on his performance in the 2016 election.

He said, “I’m shocked at what happened in Akure, because I take Akure South, Akure North and Ifedore as one Akure. So, I’m shocked at the development there. But I’ll put that behind me. I’ll move forward.

“I thought I would win in Akure, because I worked in those three local governments, where the people turned against us. But it’s alright by me. We’ll forget it.”

He also expressed confidence in the ability of his deputy governor-elect, Mr Lucky Ayedatiwa, saying he would be loyal.

“But what I’ll say is that matters like this do repeat themselves, but it cannot come from the deputy who I’ve chosen now. I have a lot of confidence in him. I don’t see him behaving like the former one,” the governor said.

They were armed with machetes and other harmful objects. Prior to that, protesters in Abuja were attacked on Wednesday, October 14, by thugs.

To protect themselves, protest organizers hired private security to guard protesters across different states in the country. However, the alleged attack at Lekki happened very early and took protesters by surprise.
