PDP factional guber candidate in Ondo, Eyitayo Jegede
Speaking exclusively to Punch newspapers, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), who is the factional governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State, warned the residents of the state to shun loaves of bread allegedly being distributed by some agents of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
The gubernatorial candidate who spoke in Akure through the Director of the Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation, Kayode Fasua, disclosed that the bread contained some chemical substances that could destroy the health of its consumers, adding that the ‘poisoned bread’ had allegedly landed many of its consumers in hospitals.
According to him, microbiologists who had put the poisonous bread to test found that it contained potassium bromide which could result in cancer or cause instant stomach rumbling and untimely death.
The APC bread being distributed to Ondo residents
“Though there is nothing bad in distributing bread more so that under the APC national administration, life has become unbearable for the common people, our major concern now is that the loaves of bread being distributed are killer loaves; they are contaminated.
“Microbiologists have moved in and found that the loaves of bread are poisonous. It was found that they contain potassium bromide, which the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control had long alerted Nigerians to avoid.
“Apart from the fact that this APC bread can cause cancer, it has also resulted in many cases of serious stomach rumbling, which may have by now resulted in some deaths,” he said.
In a swift reaction, the Director of Media and Publicity of Akeredolu Campaign Organisation, Steve Otaloro, denied the allegation, saying that the APC candidate was not aware of any bread distribution.
He said, “We are not aware of any bread production let alone distribution. I am saying this with all honesty. It is the work of some fifth columnists to discredit and distract Akeredolu from focusing on the November 26 election. But they have failed.”
