Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has won his polling unit, ward 5 Ijebu Owo unit, in the ongoing Governorship election in Ondo State.
Mr Akeredolu polled 413 votes to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, who got 12 votes.
Recall that the governor had earlier expressed optimism that he will win the governorship election in the state.
Mr Akeredolu, who spoke with newsmen on Saturday shortly after casting his vote, said his confidence was in God
“I am confident about winning this election. I have always said my confidence is about God, and God, in his infinite mercies, will give me victory.
“I don’t know what will happen. All I know is that when my victory is announced, everybody will be joyous, there will be clapping and singing,” he said.
The governor, who described the voting at his unit as peaceful, urged voters to protect their votes.
“Cast your votes, move out of the place but don’t move too far, and ensure that you protect your votes so that your votes can be counted,” Mr Akeredolu said.
