Jimoh Ibrahim joins Ondo governorship race

02 August 2016, 14:07

Akure - Controversial businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim,has joined the Ondo State governorship race, reports Sahara Reporters.

Ibrahim is believed to have picked the nomination form of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the party’s August 22 primary election that would produce a candidate for the exercise in November.

Ibrahim is already making plans to take over the party structure in the state from Gov Olusegun Mimiko to further his ambition.

He has started consulting aggrieved members of the party and discussing ways to team up with them.

To meet this, one of the major plan is to fuse some members of the defunct All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP) which Ibrahim and factional National Chairman of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff originally belonged, as well as attract members of the Accord Party (AP)

This is Ibrahim second shot at the governorship.

He had earlier contested for the governorship under the ANPP in 2003.
