GOVERNOR Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State, yesterday, described the electoral victory of Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu. SAN, as an evidence of change. The governor also congratulated the All Progressives Congress, APC, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and security agencies for ensuring that the election was free, fair, credible and peaceful. Tambuwal said with the polls over, the onus is now on the political class in the state to rally round the governor to enable him administer the state for the benefit its citizens. “At the risk of sounding repetitive, let me reiterate what I have always said that there is time for everything. There is time for politicking and time for governance. Now that
politicking is over in Ondo, I urge all stakeholders to tailor their energy towards ensuring a successful transition leading to the swearingin of Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, as the new Governor of Ondo State,” the former speaker of the House of Representatives said. Tambuwal urged members of the opposition to rally round the governor-elect, saying ultimately, the true wish of the electorate has
prevailed While urging the governor-elect to work with all the people of Ondo to move the state forward, Tambuwal advised him to be a father-figure to all irrespective of political differences. “All members of the APC family look forward to working with Akeredolu as the party gives Nigerians the change and progress they yearn for,” he added.
