Ondo State All Progressives Congress (APC) describes the conduct of its gubernatorial primary yesterday as transparent, enviable and inspiring.
The party commends the primary election Committee, under the chairmanship of Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the aspirants and their supporters for the feat.
The party further expresses appreciation to the leading aspirants that stepped down some hours to the commencement of the exercise, citing the interest of the party and wellbeing of the people as reason behind their actions.
Although a candidate emerged from the unusually transparent and rancour-free exercise, the chapter prefers to perceive the success as victory for the State chapter.
It congratulates the party’s flag bearer and Governor of the State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on the victory and urges him to accommodate all tendencies within the fold.
The State secretariat would expedite efforts to bring together all the aspirants and stakeholders within the shortest possible time, to hold a “family” meeting and fashion out plausible approaches to electoral victory come October.
The chapter cautions that members should not be carried away by the victory, saying all hands must be on deck to ensure the party wins governorship election in October and retain Ondo State for the APC.
