The Ondo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it has uncovered plans by the state Governor, Olusegun Mimiko to hold a mass rally against President Buhari.
The party said the Governor’s plan is to project the believe that people are not in support of the President.
Daily Post reports that the Ondo State APC Publicity Secretary, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, issued a statement saying “N3,000 each has been earmarked for the over 5,000 youths and some imported students from the South-South region that are participating in the rally.
“It is unfortunate that while workers are on strike for the unpaid six months salaries, Mimiko is planning to spend another tax payers’ money on illegal rally.
“We are informed that Mimiko was moved to stage the protest because he is scared of the wind of anti-corruption war which is sweeping all corrupt individuals in the country.
“We know that Governor Mimiko is scared. Since his colleague in Ekiti state has been alleged to have link with the Dansukigate.
“Maybe the Governor has some questions to answer in the ongoing investigations into the $2.1bn arms deal (Dasukigate), in the anti corruption war going on in the country
“If Governor Mimiko has nothing to fear, there is no need for the plan rally against the Buhari’s anti corruption campaign.
“The Party is alerting members of the public, especially, security agencies to be alert and battle ready to combat these army of youths that the Governor is bringing to the state.”
The party also expressed disappointment over the Governor’s trip to United Kingdom (UK), despite his inability to resolve the ongoing workers’ strike.
