Ondo Elections: APC Entices Voters With Customised ‘Agege’ Bread


Just eleven days to the gubernatorial election in Ondo state, the social media has been flooded with picture of APC-branded loaves of bread.

The bread is labelled Aketi 2017, the alias of Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) who is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Reports claim the Aketi 2017 brand of bread is being distributed in Ondo-North senatorial district of the state.

It has however, not ascertained if Akeredolu was directly behind the production and distribution of this bread or his supporters from Ondo-North.

Meanwhile, former Lagos State governor and National Leader of the ruling APC, Chief Bola Tinubu, is said to be torn in between who to support in the coming Ondo State gubernatorial elections, following the selection of Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to a reliable source, Tinubu is presently in a state of dilemma over his allegiance to his party and throwing his weight behind Chief Olusola Oke, the governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in the Ondo election.

The APC leader is said to be extremely unhappy with his party over the outcome of APC primary, following the defeat of his preferred candidate for the Ondo election, Mr. Olusegun Abraham.

He believes there has been a gang up by those opposed to him in the APC who allegedly manipulated the primary in order to ensure that Abraham lost to Akeredolu by 669 votes last September, leading to an outcry that the primary was flawed.

Even after an appeal panel that was set up by the ruling party to review the outcome of the primary recommended the conduct of a fresh primary, the national APC leadership ignored the decision of the panel and chose to field Akeredolu as the candidate of the party in the Ondo election.
