A governorship aspirant under the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo state, Jamiu Afolabi Ekungba, has reportedly described people of the state as bastards, saying he will never help an Ondo indegine going forward.
Ekungba made the statement after he lost out in the party’s primary election held during the weekend.
About 23 aspirants under the APC filed out for the primary election which saw Rotimi Akeredolu emerging as the winner, polling 669 votes. Dr. Segun Abraham emerged as the second with a total of 635 votes.
The aspirant from Owo, upon realizing that he scored less than 50 votes stormed out of the venue of the primary election and caused a scene.
He further vowed never to help any indigene of the state because he was badly treated at the election.
Ekungba was quoted as saying, “I am highly disappointed in the people of Ondo, they are bastards and betrayals,” he reportedly said, adding that the people turned their backs on him when it mattered most and after he had spent over N300 million on them.
“They deceived me. I spent over N300million naira on reaching out to each of the delegates alone.
“Even before the primaries, I had spent millions of naira. After collecting my money, they gave me just 44 votes.
“From today, I will never help any Ondo State indigene. I’ll rather give out my money to the Hausa beggars on the street.”
