Akure - Having won 14 local governments so far in the official results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday in the just concluded Ondo governorship election, it can be safely assumed that Rotimi Akeredolu is the next governor of Ondo State.

From the results released so far, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Rotimi Akeredolu won 14 local governments while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won in two local governments and Alliance for Democracy (AD) won in one.

At the end of official results announced by the electoral commission, INEC, for 17 local governments, Akeredolu scored 224 167 votes.

His closest challenger, Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 132 823 votes.

Olusola Oke of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) currently has 98 230 votes.

The results of one local government, Ilaje, is still being expected and INEC has postponed further announcement of results to 11 a.m.
