Jonathan’s Aide, Kuku and his Associates Set to Dump PDP for APC

Hon. Kingsley Kuku, the former special adviser and chairman of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, under the immediate past administration of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan is reportedly making plans to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 According to a report on Leadership, Kuku alongside one of his associates, Chief Bibopere Ajube, alias General Shoot at Sight, have sent a message to their supporters to prepare and join the ruling APC in Ondo state.

The planned defection could cause more crisis for the PDP in the state as both Kuku and Ajube are two major financiers of the party.

While Kuku was the brain behind the nomination of Mr John Ola Mafo as running mate to the PDP’s governorship candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, Ajube funded the party in Ese-Odo local government area in the November 26, 2016 governorship election won by APC’s Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, now governor.

However, it has not been confirmed if Kuku’s alleged decision to join the APC is linked with the need to have a soft landing, regarding the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) probe of the Amnesty Office during his tenure as head.

On the other end, Ajube who is an associate of Kuku is said to have opened discussions with some close confidants of Ondo state governor Rotimi Akeredolu on behalf of the former adviser, even as he seeks to retain the local vigilante job given to his company, Gallery Security Services Limited by the immediate-past governor, Olusegun Mimiko.
