According to the governor, the participation of other aspirants in the Saturday, April 20, poll created so much awareness within and outside the party.

The governor also noted that his rivals did well to bring in "numerous new members into the party", a move which has enriched Nigeria's democracy and strengthened the state's chapter of the ruling party.

For Aiyedatiwa, this is not the time to hold grudges against anyone but for all to come together to work for the success of the party so as to remain in power.

He noted everyone in the party will gain, though at different times if they keep faith.

Aiyedatiwa also thanked the president and Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for his leadership.
