As the political parties jostling for the November 25, 2016 governorship

seat in Ondo State get set to flag-off their campaigns proper, a pressure

group within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)- the PDP Reform Group -has

admonished Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim to retrace his steps.

The PDP Reform group urged Ibrahim to “deeply reflect on the propriety of

his current political misadventure as a PDP parody-candidate” and “think

critically about posterity and what tomorrow will record for him.”

In a statement signed by its convener, Ariyo-Dare Atoye, the group

described the action of the business mogul as “a needless voyage of

distraction that will only benefit narrow-minded sycophants who are

spurring him on, so as to get crumbs that will help them to cushion the

effect of recession.
“You will recall that in a difficult bid to justify their political

presence, the supposed campaign team of Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim had

alleged that his campaign office in Akure was vandalised by some thugs who

came in a PDP branded bus belonging to the candidate of our party, Eyitayo

Jegede.
“Aside the fact that it was a ridiculous, puerile, cynical and school-boy

allegation, cooked-up using such a contrived vandalisation ploy to justify

formidability in an election process in which Barrister Ibrahim’s

disguised participation lacks legitimacy, is unfortunate, wicked and a

propaganda taken too far.
“We wish to remind Barrister Ibrahim that allowing himself to be used is

this distractive manner is not good for his business exploits and profile

and we urge him to, in the interest of a good name, fear of God and

posterity, jettison this avoidable petty political commotion and support

the candidate of the PDP, Eyitayo Jegede.
“It is not too late for him to retrace his steps and support the PDP

wholeheartedly to win on November 25 . The current travail of some former

PDP members in the APC is enough lessons for everyone in the PDP to close

ranks and work together to salvage this nation from those who have plunged

it into an avoidable recession.”
The group, however, observed that Ibrahim has all the necessary

qualifications to be a governor, but “such dream and aspiration must be

pursued logically and in a dignifying manner. Barrister Ibrahim has more

than what it takes to be a President, but we urge him to do it in a proper

and legitimate manner.”
The PDP Reform Group also tasked various security agencies participating

in the electoral process to ensure that no space is exploited by fifth

columnists to cause any breach or undermine the peace of Ondo State.

“We wish to appeal to our hardworking security agencies to provide

adequate cover for the major candidates, as well protect the campaign

offices against intruders, “   the group added.
