Rinsola Abiola, the daughter of late philanthropist Moshood Kashimawo Abiola is having it very rough in the battle to become a Federal House of Representatives Member.
The daughter of the large-hearted spender dubbed thebest president Nigeria never had – the election that would have brought him to power was annulled by military dictator Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida – is seeking to represent the people of Abeokuta North/ Obafemi- Owode/ Odeda federal constituency of Ogun state at the National Assembly.
But she is undergoing great intimidation from the man her father helped to educate, Mikail Kazeem.
Mikail is the candidate of Allied People’s Movement while Rinsola is the face of the Action Democratic Party in the fight for the House of Representatives seat at stake.
The late MKO Abiola who lost his life and that of his wife, Kudirat in attempt to claim victory in the election that would have made him president reportedly paid for Mikail to study abroad when the later sought his help.
But the APC candidate is certainly not returning the favor to Abiola’s daughter Rinsola.
Mikail who is said to enjoy the backing Governor Ibikunle Amosun has unleashed series of open and subtle intimidation tactics on his benefactor’s daughter.
‘’He has gone as far as to order his boys to paste his posters all over Abiola’s house in Abeokuta in open show of power’’ societynow.ng learned.
Insiders disclosed that Mikail’s boys pasted his posters on top Rinsola’s at Abiola’s house in Abeokuta and surrounding areas.
‘’They repeat the move each time Rinsola and her supporters tear it off put their’s’’ a source stated.
Insiders disclosed the move by Mikail is in the face of provocative gestures at Rinsola and her supporters.
Sources, however, disclosed that Rinsola who left the APC for the ADP to actualize her dream after Governor Amosun claimed her father no longer as ‘’electoral value’’ has refused to engage Mikail.
‘’Rinsola focused on her door to door campaign and now that campaign is over she has told her supporters to shun any form of an act of controversy that may taint anticipated victory’’ a source stated.
