Ondo billionaire, Jimoh Ibrahim dumps PDP for APC
Ondo-born billionaire and business tycoon, Dr. Jimoh Ibrahim says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State is dead without him.
Ibrahim defected from the party to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ibrahim was received into the APC by the state chairman of the party, Engineer Ade Adetimehin and handed over to the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, at an event attended by former governor of Borno state, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
The business mogul who disclosed that he revived the PDP from dead in the state, said he will use the same strategy to silence the party in the forthcoming governorship election.
He stressed that even if the candidate of the PDP, Eyitayo Jegede, expends all the resources at his disposal on the election, he will still lose to Governor Akeredolu.
He stated that he joined the APC because of Governor Akeredolu’s giant strides across the state, particularly his efforts on the resuscitation of the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology which was abandoned by previous administration for eight years.
