Following the defeat recorded in the Ondo governorship election, Gbenga Akinmoyo has declared that the Jegede campaign organisation now hopes on God going forward.
Akinmoye who is the spokesman of the Eyitayo Jegede campaign organisation disclosed this during an interview on Channels Television on Sunday, October 11.
“This project is a project that God has ordained. As it is so, we wait. So we wait on God."
Going further, he thanked the people of the state for voting for their conscience during the polls.
Also, he appreciated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members for working hard for the party.
“For the benefit of the general public, we will like to thank all the Ondo state voters who went to the polls yesterday and voted for their conscience.”
Recall that Akeredolu swept his way to victory by winning 15 of the 18 local governments.
He got 292,830 votes beating Jegede and Agboola Ajayi of the Zenith Labour Party who came second and third in the election with 195,791 and 69,127 votes, respectively.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had highlighted reasons Eyitayo Jegede lost the election to the incumbent.
One thing that went against Eyitayo Jegede from the outset is the fact that he came from Ondo central. The last governor of the state before Akeredolu took over, Olusegun Mimiko, was from the central senatorial district also. The idea that another governor wants to come from the central worked against the PDP candidate.
Legit.ng had also reported that without any iota of doubt, Akeredolu's reelection would not have been made easy if the power of incumbency did not play out.
