- APC says it’s laughable
- Party sure of the authenticity of Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq certificate
Giving a response to claims that Kwara governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq forged his Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSSC), the All Progressives Congress has tagged the allegation “laughable”
According to the ruling party, those spreading the lie were engaged in a failed venture.
Abdulrazaq was accused to have forged the SSSC he presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for Kwara’s gubernatorial election.
However, commenting on the allegation, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC National Publicity Secretary stated yesterday that the claims were politically motivated.
“Our attention has been drawn to the politically sponsored allegation against the APC Kwara governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, that he forged the SSSC he presented for election.
“We understand the desperation of the sponsors of this campaign of calumny to get power through the back door after the crushing defeat they suffered from Kwara electorate in the last general elections.
“While it is the right of the rejected opposition and their proxies to approach the election tribunal relying on their flimsy and false claims, we assure Kwarans that it is an exercise in futility,” Issa-Onilu said.
Lanre also added that that allegation holds no water and would surely come to nought, and that the outcome of the elections in Kwara was an expression of a collective resolve of Kwara electorate for a new progressive order that the state had long being deprived of.
Issa-Onilu also emphasised on the party’s confidence in the authenticity of the documents Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq submitted to INEC for the election.
