Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu is Governor-elect of Ondo State. That's no longer news.
However, this election left us with some winners and losers.
Here's a quick rundown:
1. Rotimi Akeredolu (nickname: Aketi)
When the biggest political godfather in the South West goes against you and you still win big, you definitely deserve some respect.
2. President Muhammadu Buhari
He's overseeing a faltering economy and having to deal with a disenchanted and depressed citizenry.
Ondo and Edo were supposed to be the referendum for the governing political party.
Buhari and Aketiplay
Saraki, Buhari, Aketi (Premium Times)
On the evidence of two State electoral successes on the bounce for his APC, Buhari can afford a smile and some massage again in the other room.
3. Saraki, Fashola, Fayemi, Okorocha
The quartet broke ranks with the Bourdillon arm of APC and funneled resources into an Aketi victory.
Senate President Bukola Saraki must have been relieved not to occupy the same podium with Bola Tinubu on the campaign trail in Ondo.
