Former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, has congratulated the Ondo state governor-elect Rotimi Akeredolu on his victory in last Saturday’s poll.

This was contained in a statement signed by the APC National Leader.

He hailed President Buhari‘s leadership and called on all party members to “come together for the good of (the) party and it’s progressive ideals”.

The statement read in part:

Following the announcement by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with regard to the governorship elections in Ondo State, I extend congratulations to Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN on the outcome of the election and for his perseverance and persistence in seeking that office.

I must also congratulate the people of Ondo State for their generally exemplary conduct on election day and for demonstrating their will to shun the regressive politics of yesterday by returning to the progressive brand of politics that has been the trademark of the people of that state.

I congratulate all party members in the state, particularly the party leadership in the Southwest.

Finally, I must express profound congratulations to President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Leader of the party, whose stature and dignity helped guide the APC to another victory that should advance the progressive aims of the party and the people.

To all the people and parties in Ondo, your election has been had and held. Now is the time that all must work for the continued development, prosperity and peace of your state and our beloved country.

I appeal to all party members including those who have been disaffected from the primary until today to come together for the good of our party and it’s progressive ideals.

    Tinubu is just trying to pretend as if all is well but all is not well. Tinubu is not happy with the way things are going in the country
