Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu
The Ondo State Governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, has described his victories from the Election Petition Tribunal to the Supreme Court as part of many miracles of God in his life over the years.
Akeredolu, the candidate of the All Progressive Congress in the October 20, 2020 governorship election, defeated the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the election, Mr Eyitayo Jegede from the tribunal to the apex court.
Speaking at the special thanksgiving service held at the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew’s Anglican Communion, Imola, Owo, his home town, on Sunday, the governor specifically said he owed his victory at the apex court to God Almighty alone.
He said, “The most important thing to do now is to thank God. God made it possible, not anybody. We won at the Tribunal, we won at the Court of Appeal and we also won at the Supreme Court. It is good to thank God.”
He commended his legal team for doing a good job, assuring that he would continue his developmental projects across the state.
In his sermon, the Bishop of Owo Anglican Diocese, Stephen Fagbemi, said it was only God who can rescue people from any situation.
“If God is for us who can be against us? God is greater than all technicalities. My Chancellor and Mr Governor, I don’t know how you deserve this unmerited grace but what I know is that God has a covenant of grace and mercy with your family. But for God, this judgement could have gone the other way, ” the cleric stated
