The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed joy over the Supreme Court decision upholding the victory of Ondo Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu in the October 20, 2020 election.
APC Caretaker Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, in a statement in Abuja rejoiced with the government and people of Ondo State over the Court decision.
The apex court dismissed the appeal by Eyitayo Jegede and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because it was incompetent.
Elated by the Court decision, APC said: “The Governor Akeredolu administration is now poised to redouble the tempo of quality service delivery and consolidate its giant strides in the critical areas of education, healthcare delivery, infrastructure development, security, youth empowerment, and industrialisation.
“For many residents of the Sunshine State who joked that Akeredolu has turned the state into a busy construction site, it rings true for a man who is truly passionate about the development of his independent-minded, enlightened and progressive people and state.
“Governor Akeredolu has followed up his people-oriented policies with several other developmental initiatives which are returning Ondo State to its deserved status and consolidating on the landmark and progressive legacies of late Chief Michael Adekunle Ajasin, the first civilian governor of the state.”
