Billboard Destruction: Ondo APC Tells Mimiko To ‘Halt The Madness’

The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ondo State has accused the government of Governor Olusegun Mimiko of political intolerance for the wanton destruction of its billboards in Ondo town.

A statement by its Publicity Secretary, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, issued to journalists in Akure, the state capital, said the act is unacceptable and condemnable, calling on the governor to 'redirect his political violent supporters to halt the madness forthwith.'

Adesanya alleged that a Senior Special Assistant to the Governor, Mr. Abisioye Olatubora, led a team of ‘violent supporters’ in a government Hilux van in an unprovoked destruction on its billboards in Ondo East and West area of the state. 

"The destruction of virtually all billboards of APC and its aspirants in Ondo town by armed and violent supporters of Governor Olusegun Mimiko and PDP is condemnable and unacceptable.

"The report that Mr. Governor and his new Party (PDP), who are apparently threatened by the rising popularity of APC in Ondo State as a party to beat, directed his foot soldiers to destroy all APC billboards in Ondo town is believable given Mr. Governor's rich history of political intolerance and cruelty.

"These agents of destruction must have acted on the orders of their paymaster whose political ego has been badly bruised by leaders of his new party,” he said.
