The keenly contested Ondo State gubernatorial primaries election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) leaves much to be desired.FB_IMG_1473008111122
Immediately after the outcome of the primaries, one of the candidates lamented bitterly that he shared N300 million for the candidates, only for them to give him just 44 votes.
The man, from Owo Local Government referred to the delegates who did not vote for him as “bastards and betrayals.” He also vowed never to help any Ondo indigene now or in future. He claimed that they deceived him.
For those who actually had one vote, were they deceived by their friends, for they must have equally done their homework? And Adegoroye Ademola who scored 0 must have got the voting wrong and had his own vote among the voided ones.
Or the election just showcased the beauty of democracy? All the contestants must have been assured by some delegates that all would be well.
Akinnola Akinyinka, Paul Akintelure and Jumoke Anifowose, daughter of late former governor of the state, Adekunle Ajasin, each had one vote.
The Mohammed Abubakar- supervised primaries was however accepted by all and sundry as transparent and fairly conducted. Many called it, “ survival of the fittest.” The fittest in this case happened to be former President of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Mr Rotimi Akeredolu.
He polled 669 votes to clinch the APC guber ticket. Akeredolu was closely followed by Mr Olusegun Abraham who had 635 votes. Olusola Oke, the People Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the 2012 election came third with 576 votes.
Others are Senators Robert Boroffice – 471, Omotayo Alasoadura – 206, Bode Ayorinde – 67, Ekungba Jamiu Afolabi- 44, Olabinmtan Victor – 18, Adefemiwa Foluso Mayowa – 13, Adegbonmire Adeniyi – 8, Adetula Olubukola – 8.
Also Taiwo Oyewunmi – 7, Tunji Abayomi – 5, Akinyelure Ayo – 3, Akingbade Akinwale -3, Olatunji Ariyomo – 3, Niran Oladunni – 3, Aderin Abiodun Adesida – 2, Akinrinsola Odunayo Oyewole – 2, Awodeyi Akinseyinwa Akintola2.
Party faithfuls and candidates are now hoping for the best at the scheduled November 26 governorship election.
