Akeredolu to Tinubu: Nigerians expect a paradigm shift | Address economic development


Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo state, says the victory of Bola Tinubu, president-elect, has given the All Progressives Congress (APC) an opportunity to build on the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari.


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) earlier on Wednesday announced Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election conducted on Saturday.


Tinubu secured 8,794,726 votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who got 6,984,520 votes, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) who polled 6,101,533 votes.


Akeredolu said in a statement on Wednesday that the victory also offers the incoming government the opportunity to address the issues militating against socio-economic development in the country.


He said the other presidential candidates should take the olive branch extended by the president-elect.


“This victory offers yet another opportunity for the ruling party, APC, and the incoming government to continue with the developmental strides taken by the current administration,” Akeredolu said.


“Furthermore, it is a rare chance given by the people to the new leaders to tackle, headlong, the factors militating against socio-economic development in the country.


 “The Nigerian State must be administered true to the acclaimed federal status. The Government and the people of Ondo State hope to engage the Federal Government, vigorously, on these issues. There will be no compromise on this stance.


“The people of this country expect a paradigm shift. The results of these elections represent their eloquent rejection of the politics of prebendalism which has made become despondent.


“The pervasive anger in the land dictated the voting pattern, largely. We must be courageous enough to dismantle all structures which stifle development.”
