Ekiti 2022: I Have No Deal with Tinubu – Segun Oni, SDP Guber Candidate

The governorship Candidate of the Social Democratic Party for the June 18 election in Ekiti State , Chief Segun Oni, has dismissed the news milling rounds that he had struck a deal with the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to backtrack on his aspiration for the victory of APC candidate, Biodun Oyebanji.

Oni said though he won’t deny the fact that himself and Tinubu were once intimate friends but clarified that the All Progressives Congress National leader’s emergence as a presidential candidate won’t made him abandon his governorship aspiration or compromise it.

Oni became the APC National Deputy Chairman (South), at the prodding of the Lagos State Governor in 2015, before he returned to the People’s Democratic Party in 2019.

Addressing journalists in Ado Ekiti, on Wednesday, Oni debunked ever entering any deal with anyone, including Tinubu.

“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.

“I am not also desperate. I am a contented person and I am not a person that can be bought with money, I can’t be purchased. So, I did not meet anybody anywhere to compromise my candidacy”, Oni stated.

Oni said he hearkened to the persuasion from the generality of Ekiti people to veer into the race and that he won’t betray the confidence reposed in him by being steadfast and honest in the prosecution of the election.

Oni also lambasted politicians planning to buy the conscience of the people in the election, describing vote buying as an unpardonable criminal offence in the face of the law.
