The Imo State Governor and Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, Mr Rochas Okorocha, has described the victory of Mr Rotimi Akeredolu in the just concluded Ondo State governorship election as a confirmation of the popularity of the All progressives Congress (APC) in the South-West.He said that it also demonstrates the love of the people of the region for President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Governor Okorocha said that the margin with which the APC candidate defeated the candidates of other political parties showed that Nigerians understood the circumstances that gave rise to the current economic recession in the nation.
He added that those who thought that the current economic recession would affect the electoral fortunes of APC were wrong.
The Imo State Governor thanked the people of Ondo State for voting wisely and explained that the way they had voted only indicated how highly intelligent they were in interpreting political development and how richly they are endowed with wisdom.
He congratulated the people of Ondo State for what he believes is patriotism and also congratulated Akeredolu on his “resounding victory”.
He urged other candidates in the election to congratulate the winner without further delay.
