A serving Senator representing Ondo Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Patrick Akinyelure Allover has lamented his lost in the People’s Democratic Party primary held yesterday in Akure.

Speaking after the primary he lost to Chief Ifedayo Adedipe SAN, Allover accused former Governor in the state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko as the brain behind his failure to clinch the party’s ticket.

He described the election as free and fair but lamenting that he would have won the primary if not for the gang up against him by the delegates of Ondo who acted under the instructions of the ex governor.

Senator Akinyelure is a second term Senator of the National Assembly.

In the keenly contested elections, Chief Ifedayo Adedipe who won polled 82 votes, while Senator Akinyelure and Engr Faboyede scored 58 and 57 votes respectively.

Allover said despite his contributions and what he has done in the senatorial district, he was voted out of the race on the instructions of some leaders.

“As a ranking Senator and with all I have done for them in Ondo Central Senatorial District, the three ad-hoc delegates that favours Olusegun Mimiko, they gave instructions for them to vote me out.I am happy for this but I know my God will never fail.

“I know what I am talking about. We have six local governments in the central, by the grace of God I am still a sitting Senator.

“The election was so transparent but I know that with the volume of what I have done for Ondo Central Senatorial District, I did not expect to be paid this way. But I have a destiny that nobody can stop.”
