Story By Akinola Emmanuel, Thursday, June 10
The All Progressives Congress Chairmanship and Coincillorship Screening committee for Obafemi-Owode Local Government has denied the ostensible certificate forgery of an Aspirant, Hon Adesina Ogunsola claiming the Aspirant did not graduate from the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State.
According to the Secretary of the Screening Committee, a statement surfaced on May 17, 2021 by one Comrade Samson Adekunle from Asipa Village in Obafemi Owode local government that the Screening Committee headed by Chief Kola Sorinola and Party leaders in OOLG were incapacitated to do thourough justice to the screening can not be taken seriously.
The Secretary Screening Committee, APC Obafemi-Owode Local Government, Adeniyi confirmed that the statement resurfaced sometimes in June 9, 2021 and was written by a Reporter, Quadri Yahya that the a certificate submitted by an aspirant is questionable as the institution he claimed to have attended had denied giving the certificate to the aspirant, with no affirmation that the purported document been paraded indeed has any direct bearing with any document presented before the committee by the alleged candidate.
The Screening Committee through its Chairman and the Party described the writer as an attention seeker and cheap attempt to mislead/ incite the general public against the Screening Committee and the Party, thereby bringing the good work of the Committee to disrepute.
“It is obvious and evident that the two writers of the misleading stories did not research the limitations of the power and responsibilities of the Committee on the screened Chairmanship Aspirant before; polluting the public with falsehood, erroneous and fallacious claims against the Committee and its Chairman. Hence, we will like to educate them of the believed falsehood on the responsibilities and power of the Screening Committee without infringing on the constitutional right of any of the aspirants”, Screening Committee stated.
Having explained all these, the Screening Committee, the Party in Obafemi Owode Local Government and its environ, therefore advised those who derive joy in politics of bitterness, calumny and dirty politics to change their ways and believe in the saying that, ” Que Sera, Sera, Whatever Will Be, Will Be”!
The Committee therefore urged members of the public to ignore the mislead and deluded story piled up by Integrity Group and Co. As every necessary action is ongoing to present to the Party faithfuls and good people of the Local government a befitting Local Government Chairmanship Candidate by leadership of our great party, while instruction had been given to all aspirants to desist from reacting to any fallacious allegations flying around in the interim, especially when international mechanism being set in place by our great party is yet to issue out it findings on the forgoing, which will not be selective in nature.
