Akeredolu: I'm Shocked Akure People Didn't Vote For Me; My Deputy Was A Snake by cpu2006(m): 10:21am On Oct 12
I was shocked that Akure people turned against me ― Akeredolu

Ondo state Governor-Elect, Rotimi Akeredolu has expressed shock that he lost the Saturday governorship election in three local government council areas in the central senatorial districts despite his developmental works in the councils.

Akeredolu said this during an interview on Channels Television monitored in Akure, the Ondo state capital.

The governor-elect lost Akure South, Akure North and lfedore council areas to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede in the governorship election held on Saturday across the 18 council areas of the state.

These three council areas in the state are considered the stronghold of Jegede.

Akeredolu in the poll won 15 of the 18 councils with 292,830 votes as against Jegede who the three councils areas polling 195,791votes.

The candidate of the third force, Zenith Labour Party who didn’t win any council polled 69,127 votes

While reacting to a question on winning 15 of the 18 councils in the election, the Governor-Elect said ” When it comes to the issue of winning 15 local governments, it’s just a slight improvement of what I did the last time.

“The last time I won 14. Talking seriously, I thought I was going to win the 18 local governments.

“I’m shocked at what happened in Akure because I take Akure South, Akure North and Ifedore as one Akure. So, I’m shocked at the development there.

“But I’ll put that behind me. I’ll move forward. I thought I would win in Akure because I worked in those three local governments where people turned against us. But it’s alright with me. We’ll forget it.”

“The event that commenced this process, like the deputy governor who decided to jump ship. I was shocked too. Although, I got to know it’s going to happen when I saw his movements. I said okay, this man has made up his mind to go.

“I think God answered my prayer, I was praying for him to go and I think he has to go anyway because you cannot have people who will be there and want to stab you at the back and you want to keep them in the house, no.

“You cannot have a snake under your roof and think you can sleep well. So, it was good we asked the snake to go, so we had to sleep properly.

“So, that’s taught me a lesson in politics. But it’s not a new thing. It has happened over and over, right here in South West, even in the North, everywhere.

“Look at the case of Baba Awolowo and Akintola, look at Omoboriowo and Ajasin here. So many instances.

” For me, it’s not something new. When he had to leave, I was very happy and I knew it was politics and I was going face a lot of what I’ll call blackmail because that is their stock in trade because there is no other thing they’re going to throw at us, throw at me, at my wife and children.

“But what I’ll say is that matters like this do repeat itself but it cannot come from the deputy that I’ve chosen now.

Akeredolu said ” I have a lot of confidence in him. I don’t see him behaving like the former one.

inferiority complex at its peak.

was she the one that contested? did you see her picture in any of the campaign bill boards?

she left you people to follow a Yoruba man and changed her name into his name and you people shameless people see it as a great achievement.

you better stop embarrassing her with your stupidity, she's currently in her husband's house enjoying and celebrating victory with him.

I stand by my comments... I'm urepentantly tribal on this because most of them leading the war againt aketi who posted here while the campaign was ongoing, continued to hamper on how igbos are influencing ondo politics through the governors wife. Dont take my words for it, go through related posts! Many of them! When she made a single youth Corp member of igbo extraction her assistant, simply because she was igbo, heavens were let loose. This beutiful woman was so villified you would think she killled somebody... This forum is littered with all sorts of unsavory attacks on the man and his wife for no justifiable reason other than for the wife's background... Now they have been totally out-muscled and all of a sudden, folks are againt tribalism. Yeye people...

Jegede is from Akure so it’s only normal that Akure people will vote for their son ahead of someone from owo.

Akure people didn’t care so much about him in 2016. They were tired of Mimiko so didn’t see the need to vote massively for their son who was seen as a Mimiko puppet. Jegede was also not very popular with the grassroots then.

In 2020, they felt Akeredolu hasn’t done so well. So, the consciousness to vote in their son was very high. Again, Jegede is no longer the unpopular Mimiko puppet of 2016.

Even buhari didn't will Abuja in the last presidential election.

He didn't even win the polling unit at state house/aso Villa.

The people of akure are closer to the governor, they know he didn't perform well to deserve a second chance. Same with buhari.

Don't mind them. Same folks screaming their heads off when aketi appointed that lgbo lady that is wife is controlling him and they will vote him out are the same people forming civilised because aketi won. If he had lost, they same idiots will tell you it's because of the wife that anybody ipob supports loses
