Akeredolu confident of securing second term

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu is confident of winning the Ondo Governorship election, pinning his hopes of securing another four-year term on divine backing.

“Mine [confidence] is about God and that God in His infinite mercy will give me victory,” Akeredolu said after casting his vote at Ward 05, Unit 06, Ijebu 2, Owo, Ondo state. “So, my confidence is in God and I know God will give me victory.”

When asked what he would do if the poll does not turn out in his favour, Akeredolu noted that he has never thought about that, the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) reiterated that he would be victorious.

“Let me tell you something, I don’t ever think about that. So, I don’t know what will happen,” the governor admitted. “All I know is that when my victory is announced, everybody will rejoice.”

While commenting on the conduct of the election so far, he admitted that though the early morning rain may have affected the exercise, he expressed satisfaction that “We have voted in a peaceful manner.”

Governor Akeredolu urged voters to cast their ballot, and ensure they defend their votes and make them count.

“Go, stay, cast your vote and move out of the place but don’t move too far and make ensure you protect your vote so that your vote can be counted,” he added.

The Ondo leader will be battling the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)’s Eyitayo Jegede, Agbola Ajayi of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) among others for the position.
