The political calculation in Ondo state has taken a new dimension as two governorship aspirants and leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the state, Senator Ajayi Boroffice and Dr. Olusegun Abraham have collapsed their political structures within the state for Chief Olusola Oke of the Alliance of Democracy, AD.
According to an investigation by SUNSHINE HERALD, the duo have met with their loyalists and informed them to work for Oke, who dumped the APC for AD last week.
“We are not leaving the party, Dr Olusegun Abraham has spent a lot on APC in this state but we can never work with Akeredolu who paddled the list to win our principal.
Oga has told us to work for Olusola Oke,” an aide of Abraham who sought anonymity because he had no permission to discuss the matter with journalists told SUNSHINE HERALD.
He continued: “Don’t be surprised if you see Dr. Abraham campaign offices in some local governments and wards turned to Alliance of Democracy offices, even all our buses will be branded with Olusola Oke soon.”
SUNSHINE HERALD learnt that Abraham, Boroffice and Oke met with the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu after the National Working Committee of the party upheld the primary that declared Rotimi Akeredolu as the candidate of the party.
According to a source at the meeting, Tinubu, based on report at his disposal told Oke to join a new party as supporting Akeredolu will be a gesture that will turn to a big misadventure.
Oke was chosen due to his popularity especially in the southern part of the state where he comes from. Since Eyitayo Jegede of the PDP is from the central and Rotimi Akeredolu of the APC is from the North, the best person to pick remains Oke who will be given a deputy from the northern part of the state.
Another reason that influenced Oke’s choice is his relationship with Rauf Aregbesola, governor of Osun state.
Speaking to the newspaper, a member of the Borroffice Campaign Organization said; “Yes, Borroffice is working for Oke. We can’t work for Abraham, Tinubu has already appealed to him to work for Oke. Assuming Kolawole (Hon. Babatunde Kolawole) is a Muslim, he would have be chosen as deputy to Oke.
All our structures have been collapsed for Oke as I talk, even that of Amaechi (Kolawole).
“If you noticed also, all members of our media team are now working for Oke.”
Our sources say part of the plans is for Chief Oke to return to the APC if he wins the election.
