ONDO 2016: MIMIKO NOT SPONSORING US, UPN SAYS

The candidate of the Unity Party of Nigeria for the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo State, Mr. Bola Aidi, has denied the report that the state governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, is sponsoring him and his party for the November election.

It has been alleged that both the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress in the state are sponsoring some lesser political parties in order to make the smaller parties merge with their sponsors, which will then acquire their followers and supporters across the state before the election day.

Aidi. who addressed journalists at the UPN's state secretariat in Akure on Monday, said the UPN was the father of all political parties in the South-West, adding that the party laid the foundation for development in Ondo State
He said, " It is not possible for us to be sponsored by Mimiko for the election. The platform on which we are is greater than that of PDP or APC. UPN is the grandfather of all parties in the South-West.
"Even if there is going to be any endorsement, it is the UPN that will endorse any of them.

"The UPN is being sponsored by the entire Yoruba race and can never be sponsored by any government or any individual. We can never be stooges of Mimiko.

"Some other parties can form alliance with the PDP or APC, but we in UPN are independent; nobody can buy us with money. UPN will never merge with any party in forthcoming election."
