Jimoh Ibrahim not a member of our party since 2016, says PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State has rubbished the acclaimed defection of businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim, to the All Progressives Congress, saying the politician was not its member as he had defected from PDP to the Accord Party before the 2016 governorship election in the state.
Ibrahim on Friday said he dumped the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and declared that his defection would lead to the death of PDP in the state.
But the PDP in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary in the state, Mr. Kennedy Ikantu Peretei, said Ibrahim ceased to be a member of PDP since 2016 when he celebrated APC victory in the state.
He said: “It would have been unnecessary to dignify Jimoh Ibrahim’s ranting of PDP being dead with a response, if not for the benefit of the unsuspecting public.
“Jimoh Ibrahim is not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party. Before the 2016 governorship election, his only presence in Ondo State was an Accord Party office branded with his billboard and posters.
“It was clear he did a hatchet man job for the APC federal government that gave him Police Affairs Commission contract.”
