The Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) has congratulated the Ondo state Governor elect, Rotimi Akeredolu.
The group had earlier endorsed Akeredolu as Governor of Ondo, adding that he is the best man for the job.
The ARG also commended all other political parties that contested in the election for their peaceful conduct.
According to Punch, the ARG Chairman, Olawale Oshun, said “We charge Akeredolu, as the guardian of the people’s mandate, to continuously and consistently prove himself a leader worthy of his people’s trust, by constantly communicating his vision and managing the resources of the state towards the development and wellbeing of Ondo State. We also charge the people to cooperate with the governor-elect and be alert to their civic duties.”
Oshun also said “Most importantly, we are hopeful that in active collaboration with the governors of other South-West states, Akeredolu’s emergence will make easier the pursuit of regional integration, which has already gained credible momentum in our region. We therefore call on other Yoruba governors to embrace him, in the renewed spirit of brotherhood and reconciliation in South-West.”
