ABEOKUTA – Leadership of six political parties which allegedly participated in the signing of a disclaimer against the Chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Comrade Abayomi Arabambi have denied their involvement in the process.
NEWS FLAGSHIP recalls that, some individuals claiming to be leaders of the political parties in the state on Sunday issued a disclaimer against the State IPAC Chairman, Abayomi Arabambi for threatening to sue the APC governorship candidate in the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun for allegedly presenting a fake certificate to INEC.
But the parties, Green Party of Nigeria (GPN), Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), Alliance for Democracy (AD), Democratic People’s Party (DPP), Independent Democrat (ID), and National Interest Party (NIP) at a press conference on Monday denied signing any press release distancing themselves from IPAC activities.
Speaking at the press conference, Ogun State Green Party of Nigeria, Chairman, Engr. Olawonyin Akintunde said he was not part of those that signed the press release against the leadership of IPAC.
Engr. Akintunde described the undersigned, Seyi Oke as an impostor who does not belong to the party.
He said, “the imposter is a shenanigan who is not a card carrying member of Green Party of Nigeria. I cannot be party of the charade. I stand by the decision of IPAC leadership in the state “.
Also speaking, the state Chairman of Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), Alhaja Aminat Olatunbosun condemned the said disclaimer signed on behalf of the party by one, Chief Akande Osoba, decribing it as a “flippant” approach to mislead members of the public.
The UPN Chairman therefore, urged members of the public to dismiss any political statement not emanated directly from her office.
Meanwhile, the Ogun State chapter of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has petitioned the state commissioner of police to investigate the alleged Certificate scandal of Ogun APC governorship candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
In a petition jointly signed by IPAC chairman and Secretary, the group said “we have on good authority that candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun skipped the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) which is a mandatory requirement for anyone who is desirous in holding any public office within the country.
“Aside from skipping the NYSC, the said Prince Dapo Abiodun also gave conflicting information in the forms he filed with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in 2015 when he vied for the Senatorial seat of Ogun East and the information he now supplied to INEC in his gubernatorial form.
“We are very much aware of the fact that the law is that once a person gives false information in an affidavit, it amount to perjury “.
