The factional governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), has told Akure residents to reject the loaves of bread allegedly being distributed by some agents of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN). Jegede, who spoke in Akure through the Director of the Eyitayo Jegede Campaign Organisation, Mr. Kayode Fasua, said the “poisoned bread” had allegedly landed many of its consumers in hospitals.
According to him, “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.” Meanwhile the Director of Media and Publicity of Akeredolu Campaign Organisation, Mr. Steve Otaloro, has denied the allegation saying the APC candidate Rotimi Akeredolu is not aware of any bread distribution.
