The victory of Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN in the just concluded governorship election in Ondo state has reaffirmed the rejection of the People's Democratic Party, PDP by Nigerians according to Mr. Odey Ochicha, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ochicha, a governorship candidate of the APC in the last election in Cross River state said this in his congratulatory message sent to Akeredolu, Ondo Governor-Elect.
Ochicha also congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Oyegun and other members of the party for the victory, saying that the Ondo people have made the right choice by electing a "progressive mind".
According to him, "I want to congratulate Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN Ondo Governor-elect for his victory. I wish him a very successful tenure and the wisdom to deliver good governance to the people of Ondo state.
"The Ondo election is a reaffirmation of Nigerians strong rejection of the darks days of the PDP. Despite the current challenges facing the country, Nigerians have used the Edo and Ondo elections to demonstrate their unreserved support, love and faith in the APC led federal government".
Ochicha called on aggrieved party members to sheath their sword stressing that "Politics cannot be separated from interest but now that election has come and gone, all aggrieved members of the APC should come together to build a better and peaceful country".
"We should all burry our individual interests for national interests to strive. President Buhari cannot deliver on his campaign promises without the support of the key stakeholders who worked assiduously to set up this government", he added.
