This was made known on Sunday after the election was fully collated at the collation centre.

Akeredolu polled 244,662 votes.

The candidate for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede, scored 150,380 votes, while Alliance for Democracy (AD)‘s candidate, Olusola Oke, received 126,889 votes.

In his acceptance speech, the governor-elect promised to run a purposeful government that would fizzle out ethnicity among the people.

He also promised to embark on agricultural programme that would encourage youths to go back to farm, to boost food production and reduce hunger and unemployment.

    What a pity. Buhari and his dogs used the courts, INEC, Modu Sherriff and Jimoh Ibrahim to destabilise PDP in Ondo State. Jegede practically had no time to campaign. Jimoh Ibrahim defected to support the APC as soon as he was disqualified. Who does that? What is so attractive in the ideology proffered by the APC to enable Jimoh change camp so fast? The Army should come back pls. The current political system in Nigeria is unwieldy and too expensive plus all the charlatans leading Nigeria. PDP, APC all of them should get out.

    Bottom line is Bola Tifnubu has been demystified. APC took Ondo without his support. The end of the APC will even come sooner than expected.

      Bottomline APC won and PDP lost. Buhari did not tell PDP not to unite in their decisions. If they vote a hundred times Ondo state people will still choose Rotimi. Its no longer a party decision anymore, it still comes down to whom they prefer to rule them better. So tinubu being demystified is not the case here as all the wailers have been using that to console themselves. This is the new Nigeria, everyones vote counts and people are ready to vote for the most credible regardless of the party.

    This platform is very helpful in informing ordinary Nigerians.Pls keep it alive. On Nigerian governance & politics, common man has become the looser & victim while the political class have become the master ultimate winners. That’s why the country is in this debating shape. This ugly trend must end or mass action against political class is imminent.

    APC has brought a new method of rigging election into the country and they should be ready to accept defeat in 2019 or else Nigeria will be divided into three places
