AKURE – THE Pan-Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere has advised candidates who lost in the October 20 governorship election in Ondo State to learn from the United States of America (USA)’s election and accept defeat in good faith.
The group said the candidates should rather congratulate the winner, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko as the loser of the US election congratulated the winner, President Barrack Obama.
Secretary General of Afenifere, Chief Seinde Arogbofa, speaking in Akure asked the candidates of the parties that lost to focus on their next political future instead of crying over spilt milk.
Arogbofa said the margin through which the winner of the election, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko defeated his opponents was too wide for anybody to challenge the outcome of the election.
He said that the “People should learn from America’s election. These candidates should stop unnecessary quarrels. The gap was so wide that they should be thinking ahead.
Also speaking in another development, the Deputy Chairman of LP in the state, Chief Dele Akinyele said everybody in the state knew that Mimiko won the election free and fair, adding that all relevant organs of government that conducted the election attested to the credibility of the election.
