2019: Tensions in Ondo ‘As Ex-Militant Flood to the state Ahead Of Rescheduled Elections’ |MainNews.Blog

By, VoiceOfArogbo, (VOA)

The All Progressive Congress House of Representatives candidate vying for the Ilaje Ese-Odo Federal Constituency, Ondo State, Donald K. Ojogo, has just called attention to the fact that there is an influx of ex- militants from Delta and Edo states into the state with the intent of disrupting the elections.

Hon. Ojogo, in a statement made known to newsmen in Akure alleged that “these ex militants are being propped, groomed and financed by a former Niger Delta warlord. He added that the former Niger Delta warlord was against the termination of a security surveillance contract he had with the previous administration.

According to him ” a meeting convened by the said ex militant leader, ostensibly with the aim of disrupting the election or destroying results unfavorable to the PDP is ongoing in Lagos.

Ojogo in the statement said: “I am constrained to alert the general public, especially law enforcement and security agencies about the activities of some unscrupulous elements who have made an untoward influx into the Riverine Areas of Ondo State from neighbouring states of Delta and Edo.

“But for the divine intervention occasioned by the postponement of the February 16 poll, hired thugs, cultists and elements who understandably, were ex militants in black and black dresses, had positioned themselves in strategic creeks across Arogbo-Ijaw Kingdom in speed boats belonging to disengaged security company.

“It is pertinent to say here that at least three of such miscreants who offered themselves out as thugs are currently under arrest in Akwa Ibom State on the suspicion that they had gone there to disrupt elections there.

“Without necessarily delving into the reasons for the termination of the said contract, it is gratifying to say that government had acted in the best interest of the people of Ese odo local government, especially Arogbo-Ijaw Kingdom.

“This is more so that the said security surveillance contract was used as a tool to molest, intimidate and implicate perceived political enemies. “It is obvious from the plot of this ex militant leader that a dangerous trend is brewing in the Riverine Areas of Ondo.

“Details of the occupants of the speed boats have been provided for the security agencies to commence action even as I am appealing to my supporters to resist the temptation of an equal action that might heighten tension the relatively peaceful creeks since the last Amnesty initiative brokered by the Ondo State government.

“From all indications, the said ex warlord and his co travellers are on this plot to cause mayhem and it on the beneficiaries of the last Amnesty initiative whose integration into the presidential Amnesty programme is yet to be completed. Ojogo has therefore urge relevant security agencies to rise up to this ugly occasion and stem this unsavoury move.


Just In!!! Your concocted signatures confirm Okunbor’s anti Buhari campaign, BMC replies group

Captain Okunbor.

The Buhari Movement For Change, BMC has lambasted Face of “Nigeria 2 Day Support Group”, alleging that the two signatures used on page 44 of Vanguard Newspaper of Thursday February 21 by the pro Okunbor group to counter their earlier position that Captain Okunbor is working against President Buhari’s re-election, were fake imprimaturs and “confirmation of the under -hand dealings by Captain Okunbor to jeopardize the re-election of President Buhari and other APC Candidates in Delta State”.

Secretary of BMC, Erefoluwa Keka in a swift reaction to the publication, stated that the two persons whose names were used in the advertorial have distanced themselves from the publication and further acknowledged before a prominent Warri Chief and their authentic leader that the signatures were concocted.

BMC challenged Captain Idahosa Okunbor to openly show that he is” a strong supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari and APC, because we are solidly on ground in the three Warri Local Government Areas and have it on good authority that the Ocean Marine Solutions CEO and his sympathetic PDP foot soldier in Warri, are the real pen-pushers and fifth columnist”, destroying APC in Delta State for the benefit of PDP and its candidates.

2019!!! Rescheduled polls: You are working against Buhari, BMC accuses Okunbo

Delta based All Progressives Congress pro President Muhammadu Buhari group, Buhari Movement for Change, BMC has accused the Managing Director of Ocean Marine Solutions, Capt. Idahosa Okunbo of working against the re-election of President Buhari “despite handling the pipeline surveillance contract, awarded by the Buhari administration”.

Secretary of BMC, Erefoluwa Keka who made the allegation at Ajudaibo in Escravos, Warri South-West Local Government Area, Wednesday February 20 during a door-to-door campaign for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buahri and other APC Candidates by members of Buhari Movement for Change, alleged,” credible evidence based on our findings in the coastal communities of Warri South -West, Warri North and Warri South Local Government Areas in the course of our campaigns and investigation, revealed that Capt. Okunbo was working with PDP leaders in Delta State to mobilize votes for PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and other PDP candidates in the February 23 as well as March 9 elections. In-fact, most of our people, particularly APC supporters in Warri South-West and Warri North Local Government Areas, corroborated our suspicion on moves by Captain Okunbo to work against Mr. President’s re-election in the three Warri Local Government Areas, which traditionally determine the direction of election victories in Delta State, apart from his purported refusal to engage them (the indigenes) in the pipeline surveillance contract, because of his preference for imported PDP loyalists”.

The group which enjoined the National leadership of APC to” watch out for the likes of Ocean Marine Solutions Boss and other business owners who are beneficiaries of the Buhari administration, yet working against the President’s re-election”, admonished Deltans to” vote enmasse for President Buhari come Saturday February 23″.

While mentioning the just concluded dredging of Escravos Bar/ Warri River, land reclamation projects through NDDC in Warri riverine communities, continuation of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, the Itakpe- Aladja Rail line, N-Power programme, school feeding programme and Trader Moni as some “direct impact of the Buhari administration on Niger Deltans”, BMC enjoined the electorates to vote for other APC Candidates such as Chief Great Ogboru, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and Mr. Alex Eyengho.
