APC describes poll as peaceful, free and fair
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the election of Rotimi Akeredolu as peaceful, free and fair.
A statement by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Abayomi Adesanya described the poll as unprecedented in the history of the state.
He commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the security agencies and the voters for the peaceful conduct.
Adesanya said the simultaneous accreditation and voting system, which the INEC adopted in the election was responsible for its credibily.
He said: “Even in the face of provocation and the clamour for a repeat of the violence that rocked the state in 1983, the electorate remained committed to peaceful polls.
“We also laud the professionalism of the security agencies before, during and after the polls.”
The APC promised that Akeredolu’s regime would be that of “a new dawn where the indices of dictatorship, tyranny and corruption shall have no breathing space.”
Also, the Akeredolu Support Organisation, in a statement by the Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Steve Otaloro, congratulated the governor-elect and other candidates in the election for participating in the poll.
According to him: “It is a natural rule that in every contest, there must be a winner and loser. We believe in the Latin maxim that says, “Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” which means that the voice of the people is the voice of God.”
The organisation tasked Akeredolu “to see this mass solidarity as a moral burden to unite and galvanise the people to spread development across the state.”
