ONDO GUBER POLL: I HAVE NO PACT WITH TINUBU - OKE

By NBF News

http://www.nigerianbestforum.com/blog/?attachment_id=122003 The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last governorship election in Ondo state, Chief OlusolaOke, has denied having any pact with the national leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the pursuit of the election case he has filed against the governor of the state, Mr.Olusegun Mimiko.

Speaking with journalists at his residence recently, Chief Sola Oke said that there was no iota of truth in the claim that the former Lagos state governor had given him some money to pursue his case against Governor Mimiko, the candidate of Labour Party (LP).

The Peoples Democratic Party's candidate further noted that the rumour was a political statement being sponsored by his enemies to distract his attention from a case he had filed at the Election Petition Tribunal.

He said: 'I need all the time to pursue this case because I am sure that I will be vindicated at last. So, I will not allow anybody to distract my attention. Enemies will be spreading all sorts of rumours about me but they will never succeed'

Chief Oke stated that he is a successful lawyer who does not need to run after Bola Tinubu or anybody before prosecuting his case at the election petition tribunal, and stressed that he only met with Tinubu when they were both members of the National Assembly. 'Since then, I have not seen him' he noted.

Also reacting to the congratulatory messages sent to governor Olusegun Mimiko by some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party {PDP} immediately after the October 20 governorship election in the state, Chief Oke said that such messages would not affect his desired victory at the tribunal.
