THE TRIUMPH OF THE WILL OF GOD AND DESIRE OF THE PEOPLE
Beloved people of Ondo State and believers in our noble cause, there is no doubt that the past few weeks have been very challenging and trying times for us as we contended with anti-democratic and evil forces who tried to subvert the will of God and the mandate of the people freely given to us.
It was a tortuous journey that tested our faith in God and our conviction in the 'Refreshingly Different' days ahead of us as we were taunted and harassed by hired propagandists while we tenaciously forged ahead.
We submitted our grievances to the court despite the contrivance and manipulation of those who are opposed to democracy, we insisted we would explore all legal means in our avowed belief in the rule of law and judiciary.
Today our mouth is filled with laughter and our heart with praise, our resilience paid off and our conviction to this doggedness of purpose has made our case another judicial precedence in the country.
We are grateful to the judiciary for remaining the bastion of democratic process and refusing to be blackmailed, browbeaten and intimidated by those who do not mean well for our State and our Nation.
Now we are set to roll out the drums, not of war but of celebration of God's faithfulness and sound it loud to our adversaries, that THE WILL OF GOD AND THE DESIRE OF THE PEOPLE SHALL PREVAIL.
Our faith and conviction in this project has continued to grow stronger by the day instead of waning. Our acceptability and friendship is on the rise and has not diminished, the bond with our people is now made stronger.
I am grateful to the National leadership of the Peoples’ Democratic Party under Senator Ahmed Markarfi, the National Caretaker Committee Chairman, the Party's Governors' Forum as led by Governor Olusegun Mimiko of our dear Sunshine State, former PDP Governors, the Party's leadership and followers across the length and breadth of Ondo State, as well as all those who believe in our course, for the profound and result driven solidarity.
For us, there is no looking back. We remain resolute and focused in our desire to bring development, progress and prosperity to our people, this is our Article of Faith.
We dedicate this victory to God almighty and generality of the people. We urge our people to maximally utilize the few remaining days before the polls to consolidate on our door-to-door campaigns across the nooks and crannies of the State.
We restate for the umpteenth time that, we will prevail over all forces of darkness. God willing, we will Contest and Win the Governorship election in Ondo State.
God bless you all.
