2023: PDP Chieftain clarifies comment on BTO’s Endorsement

A top PDP Chieftain in Ondo State, Mr Bode Obanla has clarified his comment on the reported reelection endorsement of Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo by Akoko monarchs.

The PDP Chieftain had been reported to have declared support for the reelection of the member of the House of Representatives, representing Akoko North East/West Federal Constituency of Ondo State, but he said he was misquoted.

However, Obanla said “the news making the rounds about my endorsement of Hon. Bunmi Tunji-Ojo (BTO) for 2023 does not represent the truth. I was apparently quoted out of context.

“In response to the endorsement of BTO by traditional rulers from Akoko North East and Akoko North West, l said the monarchs were at liberty to endorse whoever they wanted.

“I am a card carrying member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and one of the leaders of the party in the State. The media report was done in bad faith and a total misrepresentation of what l said,” Obanla said.

The Akoko Community leader from Auga in Akoko North East also commended the Federal Lawmaker for his unprecedented strides in the Federal Constituency.

In his words,”when you see what BTO has done in ensuring the infrastructural and industrial development of his people, you will have ni doubt that he is leader who knows his onions and is well prepared for the job”
