Heavy Downpour: “It is a sign that God rejected PDP, ACN from ruling Ondo State” – Mimiko

This statement smacks of someone who isn't a student of the Holy Bible and definitely playing dirty politics with The Almighty God.
The Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko’s Campaign Organisation [MCO] yesterday reacted over the heavy downpour that disrupted the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] and the Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] political rallies in Akure and Ikare-Akoko simultaneously, saying it a sign that God has rejected the two parties from ruling the state.
MCO in a statement issued by its Director of Publicity and Media Relations, Mr. Kolawole Olabisi said no amount of mega rallies organized by PDP Candidate, Chief Olusola Oke and ACN flagbearer, Rotimi Akeredolu [SAN] would stop Mimiko’ from winning the poll.
Mimiko’s campaign team regretted that it was sad that parties which are laying claim to the State could not even mobilize their members but had to rent and import people from neighboring States in order to create a semblance of being popular.
It however thanked the Vice President, Alhaji Namadi Sambo for reiterating the Federal Government’s resolve to ensure a free and fair election in the State.
The statement reads, “Even nature rejects the PDP and ACN as the heavens opened up and disrupted their rallies at Akure and Ikare simultaneously, a pointer to the fact that God does not side with the haughty.
“It is sad that the PDP could be preaching for the continuation of the Olusegun Agagu era in Ondo State when people were given surface-dressed roads that didn’t outlast one raining season; the era of drinking of water only on the screens of television sets or the era of phantom projects like the Adagbakuja New Town for which N6.7 billion was siphoned with nothing to show for it among others. Never again will those terrible days be our portion in Ondo State again.
“Or is it the unprovoked open abuse and castigation of the person of Dr Olusegun Mimiko by leaders of the ACN, people who profess to be leaders just because Mimiko refused to be part of their plans to hold the South West to a phantom integration when in reality it was a plan to pocket the State and annex its treasure into their empire.
“But we can assure them that the people of Ondo State will shock them with their vote and we are grateful that Mr Vice President today at the rally of his party re-assured Nigerians that there will be level playing ground in Ondo State. That the election would be on the basis of one man, one vote and in a secured environment too; this is what we require”.
