The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Supreme Court upheld Akeredolu’s victory in the Oct. 10, 2020 governorship election, against the suit of Mr Eyitayo Jegede, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said that the election results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission were evident that Akeredolu was validly elected by Ondo people.
”As democrats, we must submit ourselves to the tenets of democracy, which include post-election litigation.
”Today’s judgment has put paid to all insinuations and doubts about the resounding victory of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.
”I, therefore, call on all lovers of democracy, especially the people of Ondo State to come together for a continuation of good governance and the developmental process of Ondo, started by Governor Akeredolu from his first term of office.
