PDP chieftain assaulted over Jonathan’s campaign funds wants horsewhip back

logo pdp

The South-West Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Pegba Otemolu, who was assaulted by aggrieved Ogun State Coordinators of the President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign, for allegedly sitting on campaign funds, is now worried over his missing horsewhip.

The horsewhip, which is his trade mark and is believed to have magical powers, was seized by his attackers during the fracas, which occurred on Wednesday at Imperial Hotel, Quarry road in Abeokuta.
Mr. Otemolu has appealed to his attackers to return the horsewhip.

On Wednesday, the party scribe was attacked and beaten following an allegation that he held on to the money meant for the 708 coordinators of Mr. Jonathan’s campaign project.

During the commotion, Fatai Adeyanju, who is the national auditor of the party, narrowly escaped but Otemolu was not that lucky. He was bundled out of his car, when in a bid to escape from the venue, his driver lost control of the vehicle an injured a passer-by.

Read our earlier story on the campaign funding:

Jonathan campaign money tears Ogun support group apart
Funds earmarked for President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign coordinators across Ogun State, on Wednesday, led to fracas after party officials failed to deliver the funds to the beneficiaries.
The money was to be shared at a meeting of 708 coordinators drawn from 236 wards of the state, which took place at a hotel located along Quarry Road of Abeokuta.

But the meeting, which lasted for five hours, ended in controversy after it became clear the funds were not available.

Trouble began after two leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Fatai Adeyanju (National Auditor) and Pegba Otemolu (South West Secretary) told the participants that the money was yet to be deposited into a designated bank account.

‪The news angered the coordinators, particularly, amid claims that N1million hotel bill had been allegedly issued for food and drinks which were not served.

‪The aggrieved coordinators consequently held the two party leaders hostage and insisted that they will not allow them go until the funds were released.

‪At this stage, some political thugs escorted Mr. Otemolu out of the hall, who then quickly entered his waiting Honda pilot jeep for a quick escape.

However, in his bid to leave the area, Mr. Otemolu’s driver lost control and rammed into another vehicle and a passer-by.

The development sparked off multiple reactions as the angry group bundled Mr. Otemolu out of his car while his colleague, Mr. Adeyanju, took to his heels.

‪The commotion also led to attacks on two journalists, Daud Olatunji of Vanguard, and Razaq Ayinla of Business Day, whose work tools were seized by the political hoodlums.
It was not clear immediately how the fracas was resolved.

    Hilarious! Beaten black and blue, he still remembers his horsewhip? Why didn’t the aggrieved party members whip the man with his ‘magical’ horsewhip? Perhaps, then, he would have known not to ‘chop’ other people’s money.

    Aaah! Aare! This is big trouble o! I hear Mr PDP Secretary still has “balance” to pay the baba who prepared the BETA version of the otumokpo whip o! Mistake No 1: Why did they mention money still in “bank” to those salivating, impatient and suspicious PDP coordinators instead of saying something like, “the big ghana-must-go bags are on their way as we speak,” and then melting soon after into the surrounding forest around the venue. You see what we have been saying all along, that it is money that binds PDPeans together and that they are forever scheming, clawing, conniving and hating one another right from Wadata Plaza down to the Imperial Hotel at Quarrel sorry, Quarry Road, in Abeokuta. As I type this, a spat is slowly taking the semblance of a civil war within the Bayelsa State chapter of the same PDP, where the state chairman, one “sharp sharper” Mr Inokoba, has pocketed a cool N40 million of the N70 million campaign funds Diezani (Diezani again?!) conjured up. Mr Inokoba is “relaxing” by the river of Yena, a bottle of Scorpion’s Sting Kai Kai by his side and a loaded revolver on his lap. To every dog, his day. PDP is nothing, just Alibaba and his 40 thieves gone wild. Take away the money and all that insincere and effusive demonstration of bragging would turn a whimper. In Warri – Sapele lingo of yore, it is called “thief thief thief.” Meanwhile, the BETA version of a laced whip has gone on AWOL in far away Abeokuta. Who thief ma needle…

    Forget it. If the horsewhip, your power, could not save you from the hands of your attackers, how can it save GEJ from defeat?

    I read the claims of the respected Rev. Fr. Mbaka and ever since I am trying to piece together the events leading to his fall out with Dame Patience and of course GEJ. Also bothering my mind is why at this time would he chose to make such an allegation.

    Is he acting a script?

    Is he by all means trying his level best to put a clog in the wheel of progress and the momentum the Jonathan campaign team has garnered since the postponement of polls to March 28, by INEC?

    Are his political associate jittery at this stage and feel compelled to use him?

    Has his political associates asked him to throw in the joker knowing fully well that the game is indeed up for them and the fat lady is about to sing?

    Time indeed is a revealed of all things. If you would recall when dame Patience Jonathan visited him (Rev. Fr Mbaka) last year, he was practically all over her and even prayed for her and her husband. He also released four pigeons into the air, while three of them flew away and the remaining one fell to the ground, he had prophesied that to mean that the South, West and East were in full support of GEJ and that the only place he had problems was in the north. In his prayers for GEJ and Dame Patience Jonathan, he confessed openly that God is on the side of GEJ and that come what may, GEJ would defeat all his enemies and record phenomenal success in the coming elections.

    God is not an author of confusion and as such he cannot send one message through his prophet and again send another contradicting message through the same mouth piece so as to cause confusion. I would at this point chose to remind the Rev. Fr of the story of Jonah in the bible. God had asked him to deliver a message to the king at Nineve, but his refusal cost him a lot of pains and suffering. However he finally complied and delivered the message. But alas the king had realised his faults and repented fully of his sins and attracted the mercies of God. He was forgiven by God and destruction did not come to Nineve and it’s people. Jonah was angry with this and had to be scolded by God in a revelation.

    Rev. Fr. Mbaka please you may refuse any gifts that the first couple may have sent to you, maybe, and I say maybe you have given your assurances to your sponsors. That I don’t know of. But you as a human being cannot change what God has ordained and that is what you have acknowledge in your prayers earlier for the first couple, which is that God would defeat and confound all their enemies and also Jonathan would be returned as President to serve a second term in office.

    Please be reminded that this is the only government that we have not experienced any politically motivated assassination ordered from the helm of affairs, irrespective of it suffering the most in criticism in the political history of Nigeria. This government has not even been irrational with the lives of perceived threats. Yaradua would have scaled this vital test had he not approved the killing of Yusuf the founder of boko haram.

    Mbaka would have been picked up by Buhari and slammed into jail straight away. People who committed lesser crimes of criticizing Buhari were jailed during Buhari’s administration, how much more when somebody falsely accuses the President and his wife of trying to kill him, with absolutely no evidence.
    I pray Rev. Fr Mbaka is not committing the grave sin of blasphemy.

    I can go on but as it ‘time is a revealed of all thing’. More important people and serious political threats have not been assassinated nor thrown into prison so how come you are crying wolf”….
