Ondo 2016: Abraham endorsed, not imposed by Tinubu —Akoko elders

AHEAD of the governorship primary of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state, the Akoko Elders Assembly (AEA) on Friday said the party’s national leader, Senator Ahmed Tinubu did not imposed one of the aspirants, Olusegun Abraham. Rather, they said Abraham was endorsed by them.

The leaders who stated this during a press conference at the NUJ Press Centre in Akure, said Tinubu had not done anything wrong or contrary to the constitution of the party.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the chairman of the Assembly, Chief Felix Ayegbusi, said that the action could not be described as an imposition as every aspirant  in the party would still have an opportunity to participate in the primary.

He explained that there was a clear difference between endorsement and imposition in politics and every aspirant reserves a right to seek the endorsement of APC leaders because it was in tandem with the moves they made earlier to produce a viable candidate from Akokoland.
