Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu said he was shocked at the number of votes he received in three of the state’s 18 local government areas.
According to Akeredolu, who described the election results of the local governments of Akure South, Akure North and Ifedore where he lost like a shock, he had thought he would win in the 18 boroughs of the state.
The governor announced this during an interview on Channels Television.
Recall that Akeredolu, who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, defeated his rival, Eyitayo Jegede, who is the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, as well as his deputy, Agboola Ajayi, who flew the Zenith Labor banner , ZLP at the polls.
Akeredolu claimed he worked in the three local governments in the central senatorial district where the PDP candidate, Jegede is from.
“When it comes to winning 15 local governments, that’s just a small improvement from what I did last time. Last time I won 14. Seriously, I thought I was going to win the 18 local governments .
“I am shocked by what happened in Akure because I consider Akure South, Akure North and Ifedore to be one Akure. So I am shocked by the development there.
“But I’ll leave that behind. I’m moving forward. I thought I would win in Akure because I worked in those three local governments where people turned against us. But I’m okay with it. We’ll forget,” he said .
