The Supreme Court judgement which affirmed the electoral success of Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu as the Governor of Ondo State has been described as “divine, well deserved and a vindication of the electoral wish of the people of Ondo State”.
The Secretary to the Government of Ondo State, Princess Catherine Oladunni Odu, pointed this out in a message after the Supreme Court validated the election of Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu as the candidate validly elected by the people of Ondo State.
She said that the judgement validated, sealed, signed and confirmed the electoral confidence reposed in Arakunrin Odunayo Akeredolu by the people of Ondo State, thereby making the mandate free of controversy and insinuation.
According to her, “as it is now, the 2nd term of Mr Governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Odunayo Akeredolu has been activated by the people, sanctified by Supreme Court and sealed, stamped and blessed by God”. She said that the second term sanctification and confirmation is a legal boost and confidence building for members of APC in Ondo State and the Governor for having a stainless and valid mandate.
Princess Odu in congratulating Governor Akeredolu equally rejoiced with the First Lady, Mrs. Betty Akeredolu, for commencing a prosperous and glorious second term for the great people and greater Ondo.
