APC: How we rigged Ondo Election to make Akeredolu Governor in 2016 – Abegunde


The immediate past Secretary to the Ondo State Government, Ifedayo Abegunde, has alleged that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu didn’t win the 2016 governorship election in Ethe state as declared. 

Recall that Abegunde tendered his resignation following a rift between him and Governor Akeredolu. 

According to him, some “Moneybags” in the All Progressives Congress including himself rigged Akeredolu into power in 2016 by manipulating the election result in his favour. 

According to him, Akeredolu lost the 2016 governorship poll to the then Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, who he claimed was the winner of the election. 

He said, “It was through the powers from me and other APC pillars that made INEC declare Akeredolu as governor after he had lost the election.

“Idecided to quit the administration due to the way Akeredolu was running the government.”

“Akeredolu has reduced the government to the property of his wife, son and in-laws and all government contracts goes to these same set of people from Imo State.”
