Ondo state governor-elect, Rotimi Akeredolu says his Ondo election victory was a manifestation of God’s power and he would like to focus on this mandate rather than probe the past government.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Sunday, declared the APC candidate, winner of the 2016 Ondo state governorship election.
He polled 244, 842 votes to beat his closest rival, Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who polled 150, 380 votes, while Mr Olusola Oke of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) followed with 126, 889 votes.
The APC candidate said that he was surprised by the margin of votes between him and his closest rivals.
“What has happened in this election is quite beyond my personal expectations but then it is a case of saying we cannot limit God , I want to believe it is God-given victory to the people of Ondo state”.
Therefore, on the issue of probing the state’s accounts, the Governor-elect said that this is a venture he would not embark upon.
“I don’t believe in probes. What I believe in is that I’ve been given a mandate to govern the state and when I come into office I will face the task.
“The past is the past and I am one person who believes that government is a continuum,” he said.
