Aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress APC in Ondo state under the aegis of Ondo APC Mandate Group have accused Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of anti-party activities as well as engaging in actions that could cause a breach of peace in the state.
The group which protested at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja on Tuesday said it has exposed the plan of the governor “against the wishes of the good people of Ondo-State and the upcoming victory of our dear President Buhari”.
The protesters led by Alh. Ibrahim Sikiru and Comr. Olugbenga Bojuwomi lamented that in spite of making several presentations to the presidency and the APC leadership, no action has been taken against the governor.
They said apart from attempting to deploy unconventional security personnel during the elections, the governor is stridently working to ensure the success of his National Assembly candidates under the platform of Action Alliance, an opposition party.
“Fake ballot papers have been printed in the Governor’s Office in other to use it to assist his AA National Assembly Candidates and PDP Presidential Candidate in Ondo-State.
“There have been several threats and warning from Gov. Akeredolu against house-to-house campaign for Mr. President in Ondo, he is only promoting AA and PDP Presidential Candidate, that is why up till now there is no campaign for President Buhari in Ondo-State by party members. Logistics that was released to Mr. Governor from Abuja were not given to APC stalwarts, in fact, the only condition for the money to be released to local governments was that you must work for AA or PDP Presidential Candidate.

“Gov. Akeredolu’s message to all Oba’s and Party faithful in Ondo-State was that, they should vote AA for all National Assembly and PDP Candidate for President during the election.
“We hereby call on EFCC, DSS, Police IG and INEC to as a matter of urgency investigate their men in Ondo-State before Gov. Akeredolu uses them to cause popular unrest because if all these evil plans as exposed are not stopped, Ondo-State will boil during the election.
“We call on the National Chairman of APC to investigate the activities of the Ondo-State Governor Olurotimi Akeredolu and the party state executive with a view to unveiling their nocturnal activities on behalf of Action Alliance in Ondo-State. Under normal circumstances, we expected the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole not to extend invitation of Caucus meeting held yesterday to Gov. Akeredolu since it is established from all indications that the Ondo State Governor is Atiku Abubakar campaign DG in disguise”, they alleged.
