The incumbent Governor of Ondo State and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Rotimi Akeredolu is leading in the result of the 12 local governments so far declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ondo state

INEC as at 2.30 a.m. on Sunday declared 12 out of the 18 local government areas  in Ondo State in the governorship election held on Saturday.

Akeredolu won in 10 local governments, while Eyitayo Jegede of the Peoples  Democratic Party (PDP) just won in only two local government which are in Akure zone of the state and which is equally his strong hold

As expected Agboola  Ajayi of the  Zenith Labour  Party  is trailing behind  the the duo of Akeredolu and Jegede in the third place

The electoral body however suspended the announcement at 2.50 a.m., saying it would reconvene at 9.00 a.m. on Sunday today,  to continue with the  announcement.of the remaining six local governments

Although the six local governmenrs are yet to be announced, it was seen that members of the APC are already jubbilating based on the results collated and were sure that the remaining  local governments would favour them.

The local governments which results have so far been declared are Ifedore, Irele, Ile Oluji, Ondo East, Owo, Akoko North East, Akoko South West, Idanre, Akoko North West, Akure North, Akoko South East and Akure South.
