All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain and former governor of Lagos State, Mr. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has congratulated Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu on his victory in the just concluded Ondo State governorship election. He also attributed the victory to President Muhammadu Buhari's profile and called on all party members angered by the governorship primaries to bury the hatchet.

Mr. Tinubu's position was made in a statement issued by his media office and signed by him. The statement, released after the announcement of Mr. Akeredolu as winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), quoted Mr. Tinubu as saying, "With regard to the governorship election in Ondo State, I extend congratulations to Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) on the outcome of the election and for his perseverance and
persistence in seeking that office."
The party chieftain also congratulated the people of Ondo State for their peaceful conduct on election day and for returning to the progressive camp.
"I congratulate all party members in the state, particularly the party leadership in the Southwest.
"Finally, I must express profound congratulations to President Muhammadu Buhari, the national leader of the party, whose stature and dignity helped guide the APC to another victory that should advance the progressive aims of the party and the people," he said.
Mr. Tinubu, whose preferred candidate, Mr. Segun Abrahams, lost to Mr. Akeredolu in the primaries, added that now is the time for the people of the state to work for the continued development, prosperity and peace of the state and the country at large.
"I appeal to all party members, including those who have been disaffected from the primary until today, to come together for the good of our party and its progressive ideals," he concluded.
