Jimoh Ibrahim Picks Ondo Governorship Form From Sheriff by DONSMITH123(m): 3:36pm On Aug 04, 2016
Olusola Fabiyi, Abuja

Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim on Thursday obtained the Peoples Democratic Party nomination form to vie for the governorship seat of Ondo State.

He was the first aspirant to pick the form from the factional National Chairman of the party, Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff.

While speaking at the occasion, Ibrahim promised to defray the salary of workers in the state within 100 days.

He stated that the Chairman of the party’s National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi has no locus in law to lay claim to the chairmanship of the party.

He said that Sheriff is known in law having taken over from Alhaji Adamu Muazu who resigned as national chairman before the expiration of his tenure.

Jimoh stated that he would better the lots of the citizens of the state by ensuring prompt payment of their salary.

He described governors who owe workers salary as people without initiative, adding that Ondo State has over 10 solid minerals which he would tap to develop the state.

He claimed he has over 8000 workers in his employment, and assured Sheriff that when he visits Ondo State after he (Ibrahim) would have won the governorship election, the state would have assumed a better look.

He said, “I will restructure the state in the area of capacity building, good innovation and by putting the right thing in the right place at the right time.

“I will pay the workers within the first day of my 100 days in office.

“Non-payment of salaries by state government is the failure of innovation of states by governors.

“It is when you are innovative that you will be able to pay salaries. Those (governors) who are owing are not efficient. I’m not owing any of my workers.”

In his reaction, Sheriff said he had known the aspirant long ago and assured him of his support.

He also described him as a capable hand that could turn the state around if giving the opportunity.

This is getting interesting.

As unporpular as Mimiko is right now, I believe PDP has a better chance of winning in Ondo than APC come November.

However, should Jimoh by any means, legal or otherwise, be the PDP candidate, APC will win handsomely.

This should be the logical conclusion.

Unfounately, APC currently has well over 30 candidates going into their primaries.

More importantly, the election will be decided by money.

Mimoko is ready to spend whatever it takes on election day. APC candidate will simply not be able to match him. Buhari does not allow Federal funds for his party's elections (which is good), & I heard from a credible source that Bourdillon is exasperated with Ondo people & so will not be funding the election.

My brother, are we talking about money here? PDP is a house divided on its own. Apart from Jimoh Ibrahim on Sheriff side, we are still having another candidates on Makarfi side. PDP need to put their house in order.

Jimoh has zero influence in Ondo politics. So, his shenanigans does not necessarily constitute a 'division within PDP.'

Unless he can get INEC to accept him as PDP's official candidate, no one will notice him.


And if he becomes PDP's official candidate, then APC will the election hands down.

As for the importance of money in the coming election, I assume you know little about the State.

Mimiko on his own has a battle he's fighting currently. Battle of controlling the party and imposition.

Some chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State have warned the state governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and the whole leadership of the party to desist from the idea of imposing a candidate at the forthcoming primary of the party.

The chieftains also warned that imposition of candidate would spell doom for the party in the state.

This was contained in a communique issued on Thursday at the end of the Ose PDP stakeholders meeting held at Idogun town in Ose Local Government Area of the state.

They said, “Dr. Mimiko should learn from the imposition of candidates in 2015 general election which made the party lose the Presidential election and National Assembly Elections in some part of the state.”

After Buhari swept the Presidential elections and with it, the Senate & House of rep, every one assumed Mimiko was doomed if the pattern of voting was repeated in the House of Assembly elections which was to come a couple of weeks later.

On election day, APC were cornered & shocked when Mimiko sent raw cash to polling booths and people were given 2k each to vote PDP candidates. Result? PDP won most asssembly seats & all APC's plot to impeach him came to nothing.

This is exactly what is going to happen in November. PDP agents will stand within view of the polling booth. If you vote PDP, you get your immediate 2 or 3k.

With this approach & in the current economy, many who left home vowing to 'vote out PDP' will collect the raw cash & vote PDP. To them, that 3k will make a pot of stew grin

My brother, I'm not supporting that way of doing things.

I'm just letting you know what happened at the last election.

A lot of voters do not rationalise events the way you appear to do. To them, it's about what they can get right here, right now.
