Disregard ‘Vote Dapo Abiodun Claim N20,000 Promo,’ Ogun Govt Reacts

With few days to the March 11 governorship election, the Ogun State Government has asked residents to disregard claims of a promo inducing voters to vote for Governor Dapo Abiodun and receive N20,000 in return.

In a statement on Saturday, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Kunle Somorin, denied the state government’s involvement in the promo.The governor’s aide stated that the campaign was an attempt not only to swindle unsuspecting members of the public but to discredit his boss ahead of the next Saturday’s poll.

Noting that the promo was the handiwork of Abiodun’s adversaries who realised they could not defeat him at the poll, he said the Ogun governor will ‘never directly or indirectly be involved in vote buying or wooing the electorate with any material inducement to get their votes’.

“Governor Abiodun, rather than procuring people’s votes, had embarked on political campaigns to showcase his scorecard, commissioned landmark projects and canvassed for votes for all the All Progressives Congress candidates as well as for his re-election,” part of the statement read.
