The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State has affirmed that it was ready to work with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to probe the tenure of the outgoing Governor of the state, Olusegun Mimiko.
The party described Saturday’s governorship election in the state, which its candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), won, as peaceful, free and fair.
The Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Adesanya, while speaking with Punch, lauded INEC for the prompt arrival and delivery of electoral materials to the polling units across the state.
Also, the party described the simultaneous accreditation and voting system adopted by INEC as a landmark, adding that it was largely responsible for the absence of electoral malpractices and violence.
Adesanya commended the electorate and the people of Ondo State for their peaceful conduct before, during and after the election.
He said, “Already investigations are ongoing about the Mimiko government. If the anti-graft agencies such as the EFCC need any information from us to assist in their investigation, the incoming APC-led government will provide all the necessary assistance and information.
“One of the cardinal issues that the APC is committed to is the war against corruption. Corruption must be uprooted. It is destroying our country. We salute the professionalism of all security agencies before, during and after the governorship poll. We commend specially the sacrifices of the security agents that were deployed from various states in Ondo State.
“We wish to assure the good people of Ondo State that the Akeredolu will be a regime of a new dawn where indices and traces of dictatorship, tyranny and corruption shall have no breathing space.”
