Did APC Members Destroy Buhari's Campaign Billboard In Ondo?
The internal rancor within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state is still far from over despite the short distance away from the general elections.
The pull him down syndrome got to it's peak on Monday with the destruction of President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign billboard in the state capital.
The billboard wasn't pulled down by the opposition party but some aggrieved APC members in the state.
What makes it more interesting was the accusing fingers pointing in the direction of some aides of the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
The weighty allegation was made by an APC support group in the state.
According to the leader of the group, comrade Gbenga Bojuwomi, a thorough investigation conducted revealed that Akeredolu's loyalists who lost their tickets to contest the 2019 elections have decided to clamp down on president Buhari’s re-election.
"It started in December 11 when some touts and NURTW members loyal to the governor were seen assisting the state signage agency in removal and total destruction of Buhari’s billboard."
Some residents of the state confirmed how the bill board was destroyed by members of the road transport union who are known to be loyal to the state government.
"Their actions are strange and incomprehensible. These are people who are supposed to be defending their party candidates.
"Initially we thought they were working for the opposition party but it was later heard that many of them are on the pay roll of the state government. They must have surely had their reasons anyways." Said one of the residents.
The party publicity Secretary in the state, Alex Kalejaiye described the allegation as a fallacy, an attempt to cause more confusion in the party and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Either true or false, the once president Buhari’s giant campaign billboard has turned to a shred on ground and no one has deemed it fit to replace it many days after it's destruction.
