Female leaders of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo, South West Nigeria, have rejected the preferred governorship aspirant of frontline politician, Bola Tinubu. Tinubu is believed to have favoured Segun Abraham as the partys flagbearer in the forthcoming election, thereby spurring members discontent.
APC Women leaders from Ondo council areas, in a letter, told Tinubu that Abraham was unpopular. The concerned female politicians, included Mrs. T. O. Oparinde (Ondo-Central senatorial district); Mrs. Adejoro Lydia (Ondo-North senatorial district); Mrs. E. Y. Akinlaja (Ondo-South senatorial district). Recent rumour in Ondo State about your decision to back one of the aspirants has got us seriously worried. It would have been less worrisome if the particular aspirant has some measure of popularity that can be leveraged upon to win the governorship election, the women said. Unfortunately, the reverse is the case. The number of those of us that sign this letter shows that our opinion cuts across all the part of the state.We appeal that you urgently convey a stakeholders meeting and listen to the genuine views or the Ondo people and not some few selfish individuals that are disconnected from the practical political reality in Ondo by their own selfish agenda. You are the father of all, dont let them narrow you to a selfish agenda that will make us fail again.
