CANDIDATE of the Unity Party of Nigeria, UPN, in Ondo State, Mr. Bola Aidi, has denied reports that he was being sponsored by the the state governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko for the November election in the state.
He also promised to re-enact the five cardinal programmes of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, if elected as the governor of the state.
Aidi said: “It is not possible for us to be sponsored by Mimiko or anybody in APC for the election, the platform on which we are is greater than that of PDP or APC. UPN is the grandfather of all parties in the South-West. The UPN is being sponsored by the entire Yoruba race and can never be sponsored by any government or any individual. We can never be stooges of Mimiko.”
“Some other parties can form alliance with the PDP or APC, but we in UPN are independent, nobody can buy us with money. UPN will never merge with any party in forthcoming election.”
