Laide Raheem, Abeokuta

The Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has reacted to his reelection for another term of four and declared that “power belongs to God”.

The governor commended the people of the state for renewing his mandate, assuring that his second term will be better than his first term.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had earlier declared Governor Abiodun winner of the 2023 governorship election, having polled polled 276,298 out of the 663,968 total votes cast.

His closest rival, Oladipupo Adebutu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 262,383, while the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Biyi Otegbeye garnered 94,754 votes and the candidate of NNPP, Olufemi Ajadi scored 1,394 votes.

In a statement by Kunle Somorin,, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, on Sunday evening, Abiodun described his victory as heart-warming, and a “further proof that no man can play God or stop what God has ordained”.

He noted that though the election was keenly contested, his reelection came to him as a sign of good faith and a vote of confidence in his Administration by the people, assuring that his second term would usher in more goodies of democracy.

He said his victory is a further challenge to deliver on the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress (APC), even as he promised that he would continue with the government of inclusiveness that has been the hallmark of his Administration in the last four years.

While commending the people for conducting themselves in a peaceful manner during the polls, the governor equally lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security agencies, the media and other relevant stakeholders for ensuring an atmosphere which enabled peaceful elections.

Abiodun also thanked the leaders, stalwarts and members of the APC in the state, who worked assiduously for the party’s victory, assuring them that he would continue to keep the flag of the party flying, by continuing to deliver good governance across the state.

The governor called on the opposition and well-meaning individuals in the state to join hands with him in order to move Ogun State to a higher pedestal.

He reiterated his Administration’s commitment to principle of equity, fairness and justice, maintaining that his Administration would not be characterized by favouritsm, nepotism and lopsidedness in situating developmental projects in all the four zones and three senatorial districts of the state.

According to Abiodun, in his second term, ‘I shall ensure the completion of several projects, aimed at improving the standard of living of the people and the economic prosperity of the state from the unparalleled success already recorded”.

He further promised to be inclusive participatory, transparent, accountable, fair and not develop any part of the state at the expense of the other.
