*You Deserves Pity, GNICO Fires Back
ABEOKUTA – Labour Party Chairman In Ogun State, Comrade Abayomi Arabambi has described the adoption of African Democratic Congress (ADC) governorship candidate in the state, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka (GNI) by some factional members of Labour Party as illegal and comical.
Comrade Arabambi equally lampooned Isiaka for the “fake adoption” saying the action was out of desperation to govern the state at all cost.
Arabambi spoke at a press conference attended by Labour Party National Legal Adviser, Barr. Oyenekan Akingbade and the party’s governorship candidate, Ms. Modupeola Sanyaolu held at the NUJ Press Centre, Iwe Iroyin House, Oke-Ilewo, Abeokuta on Tuesday.
He said he was disappointed with Isiaka to have accepted the purported endorsement when he knew that the endorsement was “fake”.
According to him, the judgement delivered at the Federal High Court in Abeokuta on June 29, 2018 as well as November 28, 2018 clearly declared Oginni Olaposi and Sunday Owolabi as non-members of Labour Party in Ogun State.
The LP Chairman added that, adoption of Isiaka by Oginni Olaposi and Sunday Owolabi amounts to coup plot against the constituted national leadership of Labour Party, describing the adopters as scavengers and unstable political individuals.
He said, “It is crystal clear that Gboyega Nasir Isiaka whom we learnt was the candidate of ADC in Ogun State is very desperate at the moment and his desperate situation makes him do desperate things illegally in other to win election at all cost even if Ogun State is pull down or set on fire.
“It is obvious that, Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka lack political and economic intellectuals to governed a sophisticated state like Ogun with his comical adoption as emergency entertainer governorship candidate of the year.
“The desperation of the ADC governorship candidate, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka to quickly accept the false adoption is appalling and baffling especially when the Chairman of Labour Party in Ogun State who also doubles as the chairman of IPAC did not approve the said provocative and illegal adoption”.
Arabambi therefore affirmed the candidature of Ms Modupeola Sanyaolu as Labour Party’s governorship candidate in Ogun State.
But in his swift reaction, the ADC governorship candidate in Ogun State, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka described the Labour Party Chairman as someone who needs to pitied.
Isiaka who spoke through his campaign organisation’s (GNICO) Director of Media and Publicity, Bolaji Adeniyi said, the antecedent of Arabambi as Labour Party Chairman would not allow him to join issues with Arabambi.
GNICO in a press release explained that replying the Labour Party Chairman will amount to descending Isiaka from the height of nobility into the mud just to wrestle a swine.
The campaign organization therefore said, it would not dignify the Labour Party Chairman with any official response.
“The purported Labour Party Chairman, Abayomi Arabambi deserves the pity of all reasonable men in Ogun State. His antecedents precede him and Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka would not join issues with such a fellow; as that will amount to our principal descending from the height of nobility into the mud just to wrestle a swine.
“Whatever he has said amount to the nebulous effusions of a political merchant; which is not anchored on any values or modicum of truth.
“Within the space of months, his faction of the Labour Party and openly fraternized and scooped off pecuniary benefits from GNI, Ladi Adebutu and most recently, Ibikunle Amosun. As a campaign organisation, we shall not dignify him with any official response because it is is not worth it.
“We are focused on our campaigns and not distracted by political merchant and professional blackmailers.”
