The All Progressives Congress in Ondo state has accused members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of destroying the posters of its guber candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu.

According to Punch, the spokesman of the Akeredolu Support Organisation, Steve Otaloro on Sunday, November 13, 2016, alleged that the PDP had defaced Akeredolu’s posters in Akure.

Otaloro also accused the Ondo state Governor, Olusegun Mimiko of using the state signage agency to stop the APC from displaying Akeredolu’s posters.

He said “The PDP members who took to the streets to celebrate the court verdict did not only deface posters and billboards of the APC candidate, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu, they also uprooted and hacked all his billboards in sight.

“This was done without the governor restraining them due to the soaring popularity of the APC candidate above the candidates of other political parties contesting the election.

“(Governor Olusegun) Mimiko is intimidated by the mammoth crowd and the high celebration with which the Akeredolu Support Organisation is being welcomed in all the towns and cities visited after the commencement of our campaign for Akeredolu in the forthcoming governorship election.”

You will recall that a faction of the PDP had earlier accused the APC of defacing the posters of its guber candidate, Eyitayo Jegede.
