One of the governorship aspirants of the APC in the just concluded primaries of the party in Ondo State, Jamiu Afolabi Ekungba came out of the venue of the primaries ranting, shouting and lamenting, vowing not to ever render any assistance to Ondo State indigenes now and in the future.
Why? Ekungba, who hails from Owo LGA of the state with the winner of the primaries Rotimi Akeredolu, said with fury and lamentation that the people of Ondo State collected his money and deceived him by failing to cast their votes for him in the primaries after spending millions of naira.
The Owo-born politician was lamenting bitterly to some journalists after storming out of The Dome, venue of the party primaries.
Ekungba, before storming out of the Dome was seen on the podium celebrating with Akeredolu after the latter was announced winner of the cash and carry election.
He said “I am highly disappointed in the people of Ondo, they are bastards and betrayals. They deceived me. I spent over N300million naira on reaching out to each of the delegates alone. Even before the primaries I have spent millions of naira. After collecting my money they gave me just 44votes.”
“From today I will never help any Ondo State indigene, I’ll rather give out my money to the Hausa beggars on the street.” Ekungba lamented
Aside Ekungba, about seven other aspirants also stormed out of the venue of the primaries in anger and lamentation after losing out in the race where the highest bidder emerged winner.
