Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has called on the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, to investigate the discrepancies surrounding the academic certificate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, in the State, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer has been accused of skipping the mandatory one year National Youth Service Corps scheme, which is a mandatory requirement for any one going for public offices in the country.
The Chairman of IPAC, Comrade Abayomi Arambambi, while addressing a press conference at Iwe-Iroyin Press Centre, Abeokuta recently on the issue, said the council was sure that Abiodun evaded the one year mandatory requirement.
“We have it on good authority that the 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”
The council added that Prince Abiodun filled in different information in the forms he submitted for the governorship election and the one he submitted when he contested in 2015 as a senatorial candidate.
“Aside from skipping the NYSC, the said Prince Dapo Abiodun also gave conflicting information in the forms he filled with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in 2015 when he vied for the Senatorial seat of Ogun East and the information he supplied to INEC in his gubernatorial forms
“We are very much aware of the fact that the law is that once a person gives false information in an affidavit, it amounts to perjury” he said, adding that there was need for the State Commissioner of Police to investigate the claims as soon as possible.
“We hereby call on you to use your good office to investigate our claims within the shortest possible period”. He pleaded.
