The All Progressives Congress, APC Lagos State Chapter under the able Chairmanship of Hon. Tunde Balogun has every reasons now to disqualify one of the chairmanship aspirants in Oshodi-Isolo Local Government; Kehinde Almoroof Oloyede aka Kedoo because it is believed he is not above the law.

Kendoo had declared himself the winner of the primary elections in Oshodi in flagrant violation of the party rules.

After the poll on Saturday, all aspirants are waiting for the State leadership of the APC to announce the results and return the winners who will fly the party flags at the general elections in July but in an affront to the party, Kendoo through his media agent went ahead to declare himself the winner against the rules of the party.

In a statement released to the pressmen on Sunday, by its Chairman; Adeola Shogunle, Oshodi APC Patriots; OSAPA, called on the State Chairman of the Party, Hon. Tunde Balogun, the Secretary; Lanre Ogunyemi and Chairman APC Local Governments Primary Elections Committee; Hon Wale Edun to disqualify the Kehinde Almoroof Oloyede aka Kendoo for flagrantly violating the rules of the party by declaring himself a winner through his media agent.

“We have had enough of Kendoo, yesterday, his Principal; Musiliu Akinsanya aka Oluomo manipulated, disobeyed and outrightly violated all the guidelines and rules of the party primaries as laid down. He was moving around all the wards in Oshodi in company of armed policemen, thugs and huge sum of money, harassing, threatening and inducing lawful voters thereby disrupting the orderly electoral process of the party. He also manipulated all electoral party officers and the police formation at the poll yesterday to the extend that all other aspirants’ agents were chased out of the venue with guns, there was only one tag each brought to the venue of the election in each of the wards and the tag was given to Kendoo’ s agent alone. It is also worthy of note that it was only his agent that signed all results documents across the wards. All of those are in the media fully. As if that was not enough, Kendoo, through his media agent at declared himself the winner against the rules of the party” Shogunle wrote in the statement.

“We know our great party APC is a disciplined ruling party, we know that no one is above the law, we know MC Oluomo who was dropping Tinubu’s name and denting the image of our leader through his violence & thuggery is not above the law of the party, we know that Kendoo like every other aspirants in the poll, is not above the party’s rule, hence he must be disqualified for glaringly violating the rules of the party so as to serve as deterrent to others who may want to try such” the statement reads.

According to OSAPA Chairman “Here is the link of declaration “”, we copied it here as evidence, we have also screenshot it in case they may want to delete it offline. We are also aware in his usual dubious manner, he may want to deny the story that he didn’t authorise it, we have evidences of other stories that his media agent has published for him during this ongoing local government election process. All of the are screenshot already and links saved”.

Oshodi APC Patriots expressed high level optimism that the leadership of the party will do the right thing by disqualify him because he has disobeyed, violated all the rules of the party flagrantly and penalty for that can only be disqualification because his action is totally out of place.
