A staunch supporter of the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr Dele Ologun, for November 26th governorship election in Ondo State, Mr Rotimi Akeedolu condemned the reaction of people on social media to what he described as his “kind gesture” towards the Akeredolu campaign.
Some days ago, he distributed 400 pieces of customised bread to APC members in Akure ward 1 in Akure North Local Government Area of the state.
He also donated two buses to Akeredolu to aide his campaign, just as it was believed that Ologun placed about five billboards along the Ogbese-Owo road in support of Akeredolu.
“The most important thing that we can do is do whatever it takes for our candidate to win”, Ologun said in reaction to the criticisms against the bread he donated on social web. “My interest is about our candidate. Immediately I saw the bread online I was mad. Like what nonsense is this? Why people,?”
“Some people have branded water, which is vital, what is the big deal in putting the name and face your candidate everywhere,” Ologun queried.
Asked about the quantity of bread made, Ologun revealed that a total of 400 pieces were made specifically for Ward 1 in Akure North LGA which had since been distributed for consumption.
Meanwhile, while many supporters APC saw the resurfacing of the Aketi bread images on social media as a desperate attempt by the opposition to destroy Akeredolu, with some members and supporters of the opposition parties seemly it as an opportunity to pay back APC supporters in their own coin over their condemnation of the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose when he (Fayose) did a similar thing during his campaign in June 2014.
