Eminent businessman and former governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Kalu, has felicitated with Chief Rotimi Akeredolu on his victory in Saturday’s governorship poll in Ondo State.
Kalu said the level of maturity displayed by the contestants before, during and after the election was commendable.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Prince Kunle Oyewumi, Kalu said: “I wish to join other faithful in the APC in congratulating the governor-elect.
“The result of the election is a true reflection of the will of the people and as such the newly-elected helmsman of Ondo will continue to enjoy the support of all and sundry.
“It is worthy of note that the level of decorum demonstrated by the contestants during campaigns and after the election is a clear indication that Nigeria’s democracy has come to stay.”
He charged Akeredolu to run an inclusive government anchored on APC manifesto and urged other contestants to put politics aside and join the newly-elected governor in taking Ondo State to enviable heights.
Kalu, who recently moved to the APC, seized the opportunity to appeal to Nigerians not to lose hope as the President Muhammad Buhari-led administration is working relentlessly for the sake of national well-being.
