‘I Am Shocked I Was Defeated In Akure’ – Akeredolu




The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the just concluded election, Rotimi Akeredolu, has expressed shock over his result at Akure.

Akeredolu noted that he was expecting to win in Akure South, Akure North and Ifedore local governments.

The Ondo State Governor stated this during an interview on Channels Tv.

Recall that Akeredolu won 15 of the 18 local government areas of the State during the poll.

The Ondo State Governor noted that he worked in the three local governments where the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede hails from.

When it comes to the issue of winning 15 local governments, it’s just a slight improvement of what I did the last time. The last time I won 14. Talking seriously, I thought I was going to win the 18 local governments.”

“I’m shocked at what happened in Akure because I take Akure South, Akure North and Ifedore as one Akure. So, I’m shocked at the development there.”

“But I’ll put that behind me. I’ll move forward. I thought I would win in Akure because I worked in those three local governments where people turned against us. But it’s alright by me. We’ll forget it,” he said.
