The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) appears not to be taking its loss in the recently concluded Ondo State governorship election with equanimity. The party, through its National Chairman, Bisi Akande said it will closely scrutinize the outcome of the election before deciding on the next line of action.
The party said, “Our party will study carefully the general details of the results with a view to taking a final position”.
It maintained its long-held position saying, “Our party believes that there was and still is need for change in Ondo State.”
He thanked the party supporters and the leadership of the party for their “brilliant performance in the face of many challenges, glaring lapses in the system and institutional inefficiency in the conduct of Ondo state governorship election”.
Akande reportedly said, “Our party has always been and remains proud of our candidate, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) and this election has reinforced our confidence in his ability to lead and stimulate life back into the Action Congress of Nigeria in Ondo State”.
“Our party will continue this post mortem analysis of the lapses in all the institutions involved in the conduct of the Ondo election”.
Olusegun Mimiko, the incumbent governor of the state was declared winner in the elections having polled a total of 260,199 votes. The PDP placed second with 155,512 while ACN came third with 143,512 votes.
