BREAKING: Erstwhile PDP Candidate, Jimoh Ibrahim Calls It a Win For Aketi

By Adenike Lucas

The erstwhile candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Jimoh Ibrahim is reportedly the first to congratulate Oluwarotimi Akeredolu SAN, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Ondo Governorship Elections.

Mr Ibrahim who was removed as the candidate of the PDP through a Supreme Court ruling, sent a congratulatory letter after tweeting support for Mr Akeredolu in the November 26th elections.

“As I’m seated here, Ondo State is looking like Aketi. #OndoDecides,” he wrote.

DENISAURUS reporters who have followed the elections closely would also like to congratulate Mr Akeredolu, who is predicted to win 13 out of the 18 LGAs.

Results reaching our desk shows that Mr Akeredolu, a senior partner at Akeredolu and Olujinmi legal would take over from outgoing Governor, Olusegun Mimiko, early next year.

Unofficial results showed that Mr Akeredolu had won his own polling unit and is on the lead for the top job in the state.

The Independent National Election Commission returning officer, Professor Abdul-Ganiyu Ambali, Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, has received the result for 17 LGA. Out of the 17, the APC candidate has won 14.
