A group, Ondo Young Leaders in Diaspora, A
Pan-African Organisation of Ondo Youths, has
sent a warning to the Modu Sheriff’s faction of
the Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the
state, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim over the political crisis
rocking the state, saying he should beware of
trading the state into the hands of political
merchants.
The group, in a statement by its President,
Tomide Akinribido, warned Mr Ibrahim to be
careful of allowing himself be used as a tool in
the hands of the trio, the Kaduna State governor,
Nasir El-Rufai, Works minister, Babatunde
Fashola, his Solid mineral counterpart Kayode
Fayemi whom it accused of conniving with
Jimoh to sell some facilities belonging to the
state.
Akinribido said the press statement is necessary
having read the revelation made public by an
online newspaper, (not Vanguard) on how Jimoh
Ibrahim cut a deal with the trio to sell Ore power
plant, The Dome and other Ondo state’s assets
to him.
“It is of great importance to issue this press
statement at this time when our attention has
been drawn to this revelation by an online
newspaper, (not Vanguard) on how controversial
businessman Jimoh Ibrahim, knowing full well
that he cannot win an election, wants to cause
distraction and commotion within the ruling
party in the state with an intent to give way to
the APC candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu, being an
ally of the trio and get as compensation,
governor Mimiko’s projects, The new
International Event Centre, The Dome, in Akure,
and the 80% near completion Ore power plant,
which is targeted to serve the proposed
Industrial estate in that region, besides fixing his
un-abating court battle with the Asset
Management Company (AMCON), having
accepted to play their script.”
Akinribido said “Jimoh Ibrahim has no good
record either as public or private figure, and
always wanting to gain cheap public attention
not minding its outcome.”
“Jimoh is a charlatan and a self-centred person
whose joy is tied around causing problems and
killing whatever he touches. This is why people
call him ‘Jimoh the Undertaker’. He will do
anything for money not minding whose ox is
gored so far it doesn’t affect him.”
“Jimoh is surely getting fortunes from all these
brouhaha orchestrated and sponsored by these
three people to alleviate his bankruptcy at the
detriment of the people and future of his own
birth place, Ondo state,” he said.
Continuing, Akinribido said, “If he (Jimoh), a
swindler who claimed a billionaire, could not
help or invest in his state, at least, he shouldn’t
toy with the peace and inheritance of the people
and future of the state. The only two edifices he
has in Akure, the state capital, NICON HOUSE, at
the heart of Isikan is in a sorry state due to its
dilapidated state, while the Energy gas station
along Ilesha road is nothing to write home
about.”
“We are not surprised that Jimoh would involve
in a deal that will see him trade his name,
birthright and birthplace because he has never
helped, either in partnership with the state
government or as an individual, develop a
program to further elevate the state but always
at the centre of whatever could destabilize the
peace of the state” Akinribido said.
The association also sent a warning signal to
the Kaduna state governor and the two federal
ministers to be mindful of being driven by their
interest that can disrupt the peace and
tranquility of the sunshine state.
“This is 2016, 2019 is still three years from
now. We think governor El-Rufai and his
minister brothers, Babatunde Fashola and
Kayode Fayemi, should be busy with how to
give good account of stewardship after they
vacate office, there are many problems
bedeviling their constituencies and Nigeria than
thinking of 2019.”
“Candidly, the overzealous trio have been
running the show since the APC rigged their way
into power having successfully shoved aside
many bigwigs of the party including the
benefactor and godfather of the two ministers.
The newspaper also confirmed that these men
are interested in this whole scenario because of
2019 presidential election where the Kaduna
state governor is nursing to contest the
presidential seat while either of the two present
federal ministers and former governors is hoping
to be his running mate” Akinribido explained.
The young leaders thereby appealed to the
Muhammadu Buhari led Federal government to
call the trio to order, saying they should not
involve themselves in whatever that can cause
any form of violence that will breach the peace
of Ondo state.
“We call on President Muhammad Buhari to
warn his ministers and Kaduna state governor,
to face their work and stop meddling in the
affairs of other people. Nigerians want to see the
outcome of the office they have been entrusted
with and not sponsoring political violence that
could rob our state of its peace and fortune,” he
