The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the June 18, 2022 election in Ekiti State, Mr. Segun Oni, has dispelled rumour that former Lagos State Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had struck a deal with him on the need to backtrack on his aspiration to pave way for the victory of APC candidate, Biodun Oyebanji, at the polls.
Oni said though he won’t deny that himself and Tinubu were once intimate political bed fellows, he said the Tinubu’s emergence as a presidential candidate won’t sway him to abandon his governorship aspiration or compromise it.
The SDP candidate, in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday, debunked ever entering any deal with anyone, including Tinubu.
He said: “Let me say that this is a lie, I have not seen Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for over a year now. I am here for Ekiti people and I will not compromise the interest of Ekiti people for anything.”
Oni said he hearkened to the persuasion from the generality of Ekiti people to join the race and that he won’t betray the confidence reposed in him by being steadfast and honest in the prosecution of the election.
