A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, Jimoh Ibrahim, has written to congratulate Romiti Akeredolu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the ongoing election in the state.

According to the letter obtained by our reporter on Saturday, Jimoh, whose ambition to govern the state was truncated by the Supreme Court, claimed that from every indication, Aketi (as Akeredolu is fondly called by his numerous admirers) would eventually win.

Ibrahim, who earlier threw his weight behind Akeredolu, however, warned him to avoid outgoing governor Olusegun Mimiko if the baton of leadership is eventually handed over to him.

The letter reads: “Congratulations.

“I have computed the results sent to me from 2,907 wards by my party agents across Ondo State. It shows you are leading with unrecoverable margin.

“I congratulate you as Governor-elect of our lovely state. I will advise you quickly maintain distance from Mimiko if you want to succeed.

“I have no doubt that you will urgently create hope for our people, kindly do whatever you can to assist our lovely civil servants

“I saw poverty in those villages I visited during campaign please kindly assist traditional rulers as much as you can.

“Ondo State account requires clear audit and this is urgent for immediate recovery of our money to assist in major programme infrastructural development
“Once again congratulations.”

Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has started announcing official result of the election. The exercise is supervised by the Chief Returning Officer, Prof. Abdul Ganiyu Ambali of the University of Ilorin
