Ondo election: Jimoh Ibrahim allegedly writes Akeredolu, congratulates him in advance (READ)
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State, Jimoh Ibrahim has allegedly written to congratulate Romiti Akeredolu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the ongoing election in the state.
According to the letter obtained by our reporter on Saturday, Jimoh, whose ambition to govern the state was truncated by the Supreme Court, claimed that from every indication, Aketi, Akeredolu would eventually win.
Ibrahim earlier threw his weight behind Akeredolu of the APC.
However, Ibrahim warned him to avoid the outgoing governor, Olusegun Mimiko if the baton of leaderhip is eventually handed over to him.
Meanwhile, checks by our reporter Friday evening show that the Independent National Electoral Commission was yet to make any official announcement.
The letter reads:
My dear Egbon
Congratulations I have computed the results sent to me from 2907 wards by my party agents accross Ondo State. It shows you are leading with unrecoverable margin.
I congratulate you as Governor-elect of our lovely state. I will advise you quickly maintain distance from Mimiko if you want to succeed.
I have no doubt that you will urgently create hope for our people, kindly do whatever you can to assist our lovely civil servants
I saw poverty in those villages I visited during campaign please kindly assist traditional rulers as much as you can.
