With just less than a week to the Ondo State gubernatorial election, it has been gathered that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has set aside a whooping 5 Billion naira to make sure they win the elections. How they intend to use the funds remains unknown.
This revelation was made known by Sunday Sun which has claimed that a close source within the party, who doesn’t want his name mentioned made it known to them that the PDP has set aside a whopping N5 billion to induce the electorate on the day of election to achieve victory and wrest power from incumbent Governor Olusegun Rahamon Mimiko of the Labour Party (LP).
According to their source, “We are going to shock the people of Ondo State in this election. We have been hearing the people talking of power of incumbency; our party does not in any way feel threatened. We are forging ahead with our aggressive campaign and we are not going to rest on our oars until we achieve victory. Even with the enormous resources within the LP, we are going to square up with them, money for money, strength for strength.”
The source continues, “As I speak with you, over N5 billion has already been set aside for logistic arrangements and other contingency needs. Let’s wait and see.”
Meanwhile, in a quick reaction to the allegations, Media Aide to Governor Mimiko, Mr. Femi Adepoju, said LP remained unperturbed by the threat of PDP. According to him, “Any money spent by either ACN or PDP is going to be a lost investment. Those who know the political antecedents of Ondo State people know they cannot be bought over by money.”
