With 100,000 Committed Delegates, I’ll Win Ondo APC Guber Primary–Jimoh Ibrahim

The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in the Ondo State upcoming gubernatorial election, Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim, has expressed confidence of APC victory in the election with 100,000 committed delegates at the party’s disposal.

Speaking in Akure, the state capital, during a party rally, Ibrahim said although the party cannot afford to pay for 200,000, 300,000, or 400, 000 delegates, which would raise the financial cost to over N900 million and bring a lot of money to the party, he has actually paid for 100,000 committed members who will vote in the primaries.

He remarked that as part of their cost-cutting measures, “we decided to take a huge number of a 100,000 among 487, 000 people in the 203 wards and paid for them to vote in the primary, and those are the people that are committed to go there and vote in the primary, that will make us to win.”

According to him, “Each of these booklets is a register of All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the 203 wards and 1,100 units.”

“So, we have distributed the booklets to them so that when we want to do direct primaries of APC, then these financial members of the APC are the ones that will vote, and they will know them and tick from the register and it will make the voting very easy and quick. Also, it shows our strength. We are quite good to go. But the key thing is that we have the 100,000 people in our register for the primary. Remember, in our register, we have 487,000 people right now.”

On his part, an APC chieftain in Ondo State, Abiodun Faleye, revealed that that is God’s work, expressing confidence that the ticket belongs to Ibrahim “because he has worked so hard for it.”

Faleye added: “Ibrahim has toured the 18 local government areas and the 203 wards, so I think this ticket belongs to him, no doubt.”

Also speaking at the event, the Director, Strategic Communication, Aseyori Movement, Banji Okunomo, averred that Ibrahim is redefining Ondo State politics, adding that he is the only aspirant campaigning for the primary as if he is already the candidate standing for the general election.
