President Jonathan, Sunday congratulated Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State for his 2nd term in office.
Jonathan sent a warm wish to Mimiko for winning his second leg in office through the governorship election on Saturday.
Mimiko is a member of the Labour Party. He defeated the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olusola Oke; the Action Congress of Nigeria candidate, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN); and others.
President of the Senate, David Mark; his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, also congratulated Mimiko.
While the PDP commended the people of Ondo State for voting Mimiko for a second term in office, the ACN said it would make its position known after its post-mortem of the election.
Akeredolu, however, faulted the result of the election, saying it was not “a reflection of the people’s wish.” Spokesperson for his campaign organisation, Idowu Ajanaku, on Sunday, said through a text message to our correspondent, “The election was rigged in conjunction with security agents. There was no election in Idanre. The election in strongholds of ACN were cancelled.”
