Omo Barka rescues Ajeromi/Ifelodun PDP

Acclaimed millionaire and philanthropist, Chief Francis aka Omo Barka is set to be the next big thing happening to the
embattled Peoples Democratic Party in Ajeromi –Ifelodun local government, the businessman who had been romancing politicians of late is authoritatively  eyeing the Ajeromi –Ifelodun Constituency Representative Seat at
the National Assembly come 2023. He is said to have cleared four years post rent for the Party’s Secretariat at Ojo road, to relieve the Party of every financial burden and give it breathing space to plan ahead without being hindered over money matter.

The Ajeromi/Ifelodun PDP which has been embroiled in years of internal wrangling was on the verge of being thrown out of their secretariat due to unpaid rent before the communal good spirited members of the Party contributed their widow’s mite to rescue the Party from shame before the businessman came to their rescue to give the Party further leeway. Despite communal contribution by different groups and some party
leaders to offset the rent their efforts did not yield much result except to clear arrears until he came to the rescue thereby giving the party firmer grip.
“To save the Party such future embarrassments, Chief Francis decided to
intervene”, a party source said. The philanthropist also renovated the
Secretariat, bought chairs, generating set and a giant television
befitting the Secretariat. He has also been consulting and paying
homage’s to the different leaders of the party in both Constituencies,
the source said.

A reliable source from the party who does not want his name in print disclosed that, Omo Barka has visited the Chairman of the Elders Council, Alhaji Fakunle Rasaq the parallel leader, Evangelist Israel Ogunrinde and the
reconciliation Committee Chairman, Hon Tajudeen  Balogun ,including the party LGA Chairman.

Another Party source said, though the party leaders are still running checks on the philanthropist, however, his entrant will sharpen PDP’s edges and his ambition for the House of Representatives will make the race tighter.

Another Party source however revealed that come 2023, former House of Representatives member, Hon Rita Orji, may likely run, though observers see her more as a spoiler rather than a strong contender. He however noted that anybody playing down the chances of Hon Orji to clinch the party’s ticket is doing so at his/her own risk as she also
has strong  links to  the national officers. Equally,Hon Emilia Ezeude is there too with her money bag and she cannot be easily shoved aside, Just recently, she bought an exotic bus for the State Secretariat, shared money to party members across the different groups during the lockdown and no one can dispute
her strong links at the State
