The candidate of the Alliance for Democracy, AD, Chief Olusola Oke, has cried out to President Muhammadu Buhari to save him from a cabal within his government who want to stop him from contesting the November 26, 2016 governorship election in the state.
Speaking through the Director General of Olusola Oke Campaign Organisation, Mr Bola Ilori in Akure yesterday, Oke specifically, fingered the governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Jigawa State and chairman of the APC Primaries Election Committee in Ondo State, Alhaji Badaru, Minister of Works, Raji Fasola, Minister of Solid Minerals, Kayode Fayemi and the Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosu among others as the arrowhead of the plot.
Ilori said their aim is to stop Oke from contesting the election to clear the way for their protégé, Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is also vying for the Ondo State governorship position.
He said: “This plot to stop Chief Oke from contesting the election is simply to clear the way for their protégé, Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is also vying for the Ondo State governorship position.
“The plan of these people was to prevent Olusola Oke from contesting the election because their candidate, Akeredolu, is not in contention, having lost relevance with the people, thus they have resorted to lots of underhand tactics to stop him.
“We are aware of the pedigree of President Buhari, his uprightness and his zero tolerance to dirty tricks to get advantage of people, even against his avowed antagonists.”
but these cabal are using the paraphernalia of the Federal Government with impunity to get unsavory advantage thus tainting his good works.
