An alarm has been raised over alleged anti-party activities of a member of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State, Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim, who is accused of working to make President Goodluck Jonathan lose to General Muhamadu Buhari in the 2015 presidential election.
In a statement by a chieftain of the PDP, Hon. Banji Okunomo, in Akure, on Friday, he said Ibrahim is gradually making true his threat to ensure that a weakened PDP confronts the opposition in the 2015 elections, adding that it is no longer a secret that he is a fanatical supporter of Buhari.
Calling on the leaders of the party at the national level “to tame the rampaging foe in the garb of a party leader before he realises his ambition of rubbishing the chances of President Jonathan at the coming election to the advantage of his godfather in the opposition party” , Okunomo recalled that the party went to town recently with the threat of Ibrahim who allegedly claimed to have been prepared to reverse whatever progress that may have been recorded in reconciling the various interests in Ondo PDP following the voluntary resignation of the former members of the state executive.
“The threat has been carried out even though he did not succeed in preventing the recognition of the list of names of the party’s flag bearers at the coming state and National Assembly elections”, Okunomo said, warning that the party leadership should hold itself responsible for whatever havoc” Ibrahim may eventually cause as his plan to ensure that he destabilises the party to pave the way for the opposition which has his godfather as a presidential candidate is no longer hidden”.
