Ondo Election: Mimiko Campaign Organisation Blows Whistle On Alleged Plan By ACN To Rig With Mercenaries
The Olusegun Mimiko Campaign Organisation on Sunday blew the whistle on what it alleged as a grand plan by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) to import political mercenaries into Ondo State ahead of the 20 October gubernatorial election to rig the election.
According to the Organisation, the ACN, held a meeting recently in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, at the instance of the CAN chairman, Chief Bisi Akande who also presided over that same meeting.
Sources privy to the meeting, according to a release issued by its Director of Publicity and Merdia Relations, Mr Kolawole Olabisi, informed that the ACN Chairman in company with some of the party
officials including Rotimi Agbede the Publicity secretary of the party in Ondo state assembled in an hotel owned by an ACN Senator in the state to perfect the act.
He alleged that the meeting the sole agenda of which was the “capturing of Ondo State” at all cost, dwelled extensively on what was described at the meeting as “ looking for the best fool-proof and perfect formula to push Mimiko out of office despite his immense popularity.”
It added that the Ekiti State Chief of Staff, Yemi Adaramodu, a chief from Okitipupa area of Ondo state as well as some members of the party from the riverside area were present at the meeting.
“We went to alert the whole world to the devilish act of the ACN which has perfected plans to further perpetrate its violent bent in Ondo State since they came like a rapacious army of occupation that they are. At the clandestine meeting, hled in the hotel of a serving Senator in Ado Ekiti, it was concluded that mercenaries would be brought in from far away Adamawa state to execute the ‘formula’ which details the meeting agreed would be released at another meeting scheduled for the Osun state capital Oshogbo before the end of August.
“According to the agreement of the meeting, all arrangements must be concluded regarding the Adamawa `imports` because they must be on ground for the campaign flag off of the ACN tentatively scheduled for the end of August in Akure.
“The idea of the mercenaries being part of the flag off, a member of the Ado Ekiti meeting revealed, was to ensure that the personnel use the opportunity of the gathering to enter the state and begin a secret familiarisation with the environment ahead of the election day when they are expected to strike.
“It was generally agreed upon at the meeting that the party would not be able to make any meaningful impact at the polls because of the popularity of Governor Mimiko which was described as overwhelming hence, the Adamawa mercenary option,” the Mimiko campaign Organisation alleged The Organisation further gave details of decision made at the meeting, which it got from a source privy to the meeting, said the Adamawa mercenaries as mentioned in the meeting were already used to the ACN`s mode of operation and are not likely to be traced to the party should something go wrong while executing their plans. The Adamawa gang are also said to primarily be working for a presidential candidate from the state who works in tandem with the ACN leadership.
