An All Progressives Congress (APC) leader in Ogun State, Chief Tolu Odebiyi, has congratulated Mr Rotimi Akeredolu over his victory at last Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State.
In a statement issued on Monday by his Media Office, Odebiyi said Akeredolu’s triumph reflected the abiding faith of Nigerians in the APC as the party that can rescue the country from the mess of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said that the outcome of the election also showed the belief in the capacity of Akeredolu to take Ondo State to the promise land after several years in the hands of the opposition.
Odebiyi said: “This is a plus also for the leadership shown by President Muhammadu Buhari in piloting the affairs of the country.
“It indeed is a reflection of the belief of Nigerians in the capacity of the President and the APC to take the country out of the doldrums despite the attempts by the opposition to rubbish the good works being done to redeem the country”, he said.
Odebiyi praised the leadership of the APC at the national level to sell the programmes of the party to Nigerians, adding, “It is equally pertinent to congratulate the governors on the platform of the APC in the South West.
