The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo state has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of destroying posters belonging to Eyitayo Jegede, the PDP factional guber candidate.

This is coming after the APC’ campaign rally in Akure, aimed at drumming up support for its candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu.

According to Punch, the PDP also alleged that APC chieftains personally supervised the defacing of the posters.

The spokesman of the Eyitayo Jegede campaign group, Kayode Fasua, said “APC thugs, under the supervision of the party’s chieftains, had hit the streets in Akure, pulling down the billboards of Jegede and tearing his posters in a desperate attempt to hoodwink President Muhammadu Buhari’s representatives into believing that the APC is popular in Ondo State.

“The vandalism reached a crescendo at about 7am today (Thursday) when APC thugs mounted the pedestrian bridge at Oja-Oba, in Akure, and pulled down the banners of Jegede and his running mate, Mr. John Ola Mafo.

“While it is true that Jegede is at the Court of Appeal trying to reclaim his mandate from Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim, one wonders the law relied upon by the APC chieftains and their thugs to pull down the billboards and also tear his posters, simply because Buhari was being expected in the state.”

Meanwhile, the PDP guber candidate, Jimoh Ibrahim has revealed that Prophet TB Joshua told him that he will become Governor.
