Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has been reelected for another four-year term.
The governor who was also the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2020 Ondo State governorship election, was declared winner of the poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission after defeating his opponents.
Specifically, Akeredolu floored his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede, and his estranged deputy, Agboola Ajayi of the ZLP.
Akeredolu polled 292,830 votes as against Jegede’s 195,791 votes.
INEC’s Returning Officer, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, who declared Akeredolu winner, said he had met all conditions required to be returned as governor-elect for the state.
Though Jegede won the first LG (Ifedore) result to be announced, Akeredolu maintained a comfortable lead after 16 of the 18 LGAs’ results were announced.
Jegede won in Akure South, Akure North, and Ifedore LGAs while the Deputy Governor and Zenith Labour Party candidate, Agboola Ajayi, won none.
