Former factional governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Jimoh Ibrahim, has stated that his legal battle to fly the party’s flag was to stop Ondo State Governor, Segun Mimiko, from helping his protege win.
Eyitayo Jegede, who was declared the authentic candidate of the PDP by the Appeal Court, served as Commissioner for Justice under Mimiko and was preferred aspirant of the governor.
In a new footage which emerged Friday, Ibrahim said he was glad that he distracted Mimiko and Jegede, adding that the party will not win on Saturday.
He said: “Election will be held on Saturday. No matter what they do, it’s gone.
“Mimiko is just wasting his time. There’s nothing he can do.
“I decided deliberately lock him up and waste his time for three weeks…took him out the state, destabilized him.
“Now I have released him…two days to the election. He is dancing naked,” Ibrahim said full of smiles.
