Buhari, APC, others rejoice with Akeredolu over Supreme Court victory

President Muhammadu Buhari, the ruling All Progressive Congress and Eyitayo Jegede have congratulated Governor Rotimi Akeredolu over his victory at the court.

President Muhammadu Buhari also urged the opposition in Ondo State to work with the governor in the interest of the state.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, President Buhari charged Akeredolu and other elected officers on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to always design their development programme, and projects in accordance with the demand of the people.

He said: “President Buhari extols the Ondo State governor for assiduously working for the development of the state, with reforms that continue to attract the goodwill of investors, and insistence that education, health and security take priority.

“President Buhari calls on the opposition to sheathe the sword, work for the development of Ondo State, and wishes the government and people a prosperous future”, the statement said.

The APC, in a statement by the Caretaker Committee Secretary Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, said the governor should now focus on the task of development.

He said: “The Governor Akeredolu administration is now poised to redouble the tempo of quality service delivery and consolidate its giant strides in the critical areas of education, healthcare delivery, infrastructure development, security, youth empowerment, and industrialization.

Jegede congratulated Akeredolu, saying that it was time to give glory to God, having explored the grievance procedure permitted by the constitution and the law.

He said: “With this outcome, our respect and reverence for the judiciary and our justices of the supreme court has not diminished. I congratulate HE Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.”
