Following the loss at the Ondo State governorship, the campaign spokesperson for the Eyitayo Jegede camp, Gbenga Akinmoyo, described the recently-concluded Ondo election as a "project God had ordained".
Akinmoyo said this in an interview with Channels TV in the Ondo State capital Akure, on Sunday.
Akinmoyo said, “This project is a project that God has ordained. As it is so, we wait. So we wait on God."
He went on to thank the people of the state who voted at the polls on Saturday, stating that they "voted for their conscience".
He said, “For the benefit of the general public, we will like to thank all the Ondo State voters who went to the polls yesterday and voted for their conscience.”
The statement of the spokesman comes on the heel of the announcement by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the win of the incumbent, Rotimi Akeredolu, at the Ondo polls.
Akeredolu won in 15 local government areas of the state, out of the 18 local government areas, while Jegede won in 3.
Jegede's lost with 195,791 votes, while Akeredolu won with 292,830; the candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), Agboola Ajayi, had 69,127 votes.
