Akeredolu wins APC gov primary election in Ondo


The Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, has emerged the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the October 10 Governorship election in the State.

Akeredolu won in all the Local government Areas of the State, defeating seven other aspirants.

In the result, Akeredolu polled 2,458 votes, while Chief Olusola Oke came second, having scored 262 votes. Mr Isaac Kekemeke came third after polling 19 votes.

The  primary of the APC was conducted with over 2,500 delegates from the 18 local government areas of the state who converged on the International Event Centre, Alagbaka, Akure, the state capital, to cast their votes.

Recall that an aspirant, Ife Oyedele, had earlier stepped down for Akeredolu.

Similarly, another aspirant, Odimayo, also mentioned the party’s influence on his decision to withdraw from the race.

“After a series of meetings and consultations with the top hierarchy of our party at both the national and state levels, fellow contestants, leaders, elders and other stakeholders, I  will not be participating in today’s July 20, 2020 APC Governorship Primary Election, thereby pledging my full support and that of my team and political family members for our Governor Akeredolu to emerge, as the candidate of our party, APC,” he said.

The Chairman of the APC Primary Committee and Governor of Kogi State, Mr Yahaya Bello, had assured that the exercise would be free, fair and transparent.

He said, “I was satisfied with what I saw when I came in. I saw that the security arrangement was proper. I also commended the delegates for comporting themselves in a good manner and I am very sure that the exercise would be free and fair.
