• Bada emerges NNPP candidate
• PDP dispels rumour on Jegede

The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has been warned against cancellation of the party’s primary, which produced Rotimi Akeredolu as flag bearer for the November 26 governorship election.

Publicity Secretary, Omo’Oba Abayomi Adesanya, said if September 3, 2016 primary were nullified, the party would lose the election.

Adesanya, who spoke with The Guardian in Akure yesterday added that such action could lead to unending crisis.

Akeredolu, former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, emerged the candidate after defeating 23 aspirants. Some aspirants, who had earlier congratulated him, however, recanted and petitioned the party’s appeal committee, alleging irregularities on the delegates’ list.

Adesanya said: “Cancelling the Ondo State governorship primary will not be in the best interest of the party in the state. I want those who are clamouring for its cancelation to know that such step will lead to disunity, acrimony and unending crisis that will keep the party from winning the November 26 governorship election.”

Meanwhile, former chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Commissioner for Health in the state, Oluwadare Bada, has emerged candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) for the governorship election.

Five aspirants yesterday agreed to a consensus arrangement to hand him the ticket in the exercise monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Akure.

While speaking after the congress of 222 delegates, Bada described NNPP as an alternative for people of the state, saying the two main political parties, the APC and PDP, were riddled with crises.

In a related development, the PDP dispelled rumour that its candidate for the governorship election, Eyitayo Jegede, had dumped the platform for the Labour Party (LP).

    I am about to loose my patience for good reasons because some things now confuse my CONVICTION in the knowledge of good DEEDS. And are as follows;

    1) Is it flying B A T or flying Kite?

    2) Is it B A T flying or Kite flying?

    3) Is it fly KITE or fly B A T?

    Sometimes ago a certain National leader danced openly in the public and at an occasion , there and then I became worried for DEMOCRACY because DEMONS don’t do DANCING just for NOTHING and I hope no one is lost to the meaning to DRUM BEATS.
    If Ondo is lost look for B A T not fly KITE because DEMONCRACY is the killing of Oneself by Oneself for Oneself.
    Hhmmmmmm! !!

    And who is the man called B A T?

    Please I have not let the B A T out of the bag o. And I am not TONGUE-TIED also.
