Ondo guber: Jimoh Ibrahim’s rally, a sham – PDP

The Ahmed Makarfi led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, has described the rally held on Monday by Sheriff led faction of the party ahead of November 26, governorship election in the state, as a sham.


The party, through its State Publicity Secretary, Hon. Banji Okunomo, said the show was “another incidence of some masquerades dancing naked in the public.”


Okunomo, in a statement issued yesterday in Akure, the state capital, noted that the sham was put up by Mr Jimoh Ibrahim and some imported participants from Ogun State.


Okunomo who posited that real members of the PDP in Ondo State did not show up at the charade knowing full well that everything about Jimoh is deceit, noted that the few persons who were at the rally wore fez caps and other items bearing ‘Omo-Ilu foundation’, an appellation for Senator Kasamu Buruji from Ogun State.

He said: “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State uses this medium to dissociate itself from a purported rally organised by Jimoh Ibrahim and his cohorts in Ore on Monday in the name of Ondo PDP.


“The rally is not only a sham but a further portrait of Jimoh Ibrahim as one who is in for a spoiler’s job in the November 26, 2016 governorship election. For those who have been keeping abreast with the activities of the PDP in Ondo State, it would be obvious to them that the purported rally falls from the normal PDP standard.


“Those who attended the rally were also alien to the PDP in Ondo State. It was gathered that many of them were imported from Ogun State.


“We should recall that the scam described as governorship primary election that produced Jimoh was held in Ibadan, kilometres away from the shores of Ondo State.’
