Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has described his emergence as governor of the state as “a miracle”.
The governor said this at a thanksgiving service held in his honour at the All Saint’s Church, Jericho, Ibadan.
Akeredolu, the APC candidate, defeated Mr Eyitayo Jegede of the opposition PDP and Dr Olusola Oke of the AD to emerge winner in the November 2016 governorship election in the state.
He said his victory was a manifestation of the peoples trust and love for God.
Akeredolu promised to lead a purposeful government in the state, adding that he was indebted to the church because he had found all that he wanted in the church.
Earlier, Ven. Godwin Daramola in his sermon, urged the governor to make thanksgiving his lifestyle in order to experience the blessings of God on a daily basis.
He charged Akeredolu to emulate the exemplary life of Jesus Christ, to strive for integrity and to be wary of sycophants.
