Former President Goodluck Jonathan has again been drawn into allegations against Governor Olusegun Mimiko by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This time, the ex-president is accused of approving a huge sum drawn from the federal purse to the governor for him to prosecute his second term election in the state.
The APC in Ondo state has put the sum at N15 billion spent by Governor Mimiko for his re-election in 2012.
Political activities are daily heating up in the state ahead of the the governorship election later this year and the APC currently has about 51 contenders for the position.
