Ahead of the October 20 Governorship election in Ondo State, the Olusegun Mimiko Campaign Organisation on Sunday raised alarm over
massive purchase of Voters’ Cards by the opposition from unsuspecting people in the State.
The Organisation while making this disclosure in a release by its Director of Publicity, Mr. Kolawole Olabisi decried what it termed a
surreptitious attempt by the opposition to rig the forthcoming election, whittle down the expected massive re-election of the
incumbent Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko by the dastard act.

According to him, unsuspecting members of the populace are being lured by alleged 5,000 and 10,000 naira to buy their voters card with a view to winning the forthcoming election at all cost when it has become crystal clear that they could not win in a free and fair election.

The Organisation therefore called on the electorate to be wary of this latest development and shun their entreaties and their tarnished lucre
saying that their Voters’ cards were their power and one which they must hold unto at all cost.

Olabisi said the Victory of Comrade Governor, Adams Oshiomhole in Edo has proven to the election riggers of yore that the vote of the people now counts
and that performance, not god fatherism, ballot boxes snatching, stuffing or intimidation of voters as it were in the past, is now the
yardstick for electoral victory.
