The Ogun State Chapter of Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has expressed its support for governor Dapo Abiodun-led government.
With a vote of confidence in the governor for quality administration in the State, the State Chairman of IPAC, Samson Okusanya condemned a petition signed by one Ayodele Oludiran on behalf of a civil rights group seeking the disqualification of Abiodun
Okusanya, who made this known while speaking at a press conference in Abeokuta, said the petition was ill-conceived, and aimed at smearing the good work and the great achievements of the governor.
According to him: “Ogun IPAC would not have delved into the issue if such allegations were made by APC members, but the petition was written and signed by a Civil Society Organisation and now made public.
“It, therefore, necessitates that as a body established and recognized by the law, we should beam our search light on the issue accordingly.
“Upon the release of the petition, the leadership of IPAC met with the leadership of APC in the State to make necessary findings on the various allegations levelled against the State governor.
“IPAC found out that the petition is spurious, not genuine and a calculated attempt to disparage the person of the Governor.
“Dapo Abiodun is well educated with verifiable facts and a seasoned administrator per excellence whose corporate experiences have reflected in the ongoing transformational changes in Ogun State.
“Definitely, the fifth columnists, who are hiding behind their fingers to truncate the development of Ogun State through all means, including the latest attempt through the spurious petition, shall be put to shame.
“These set of people, who have mismanaged the resources of the State while at the helms of affairs in the State through so many fraudulent white elephant projects are today the mantrach/Epitome of ‘We shall do all things.’”
While adding that the attempt to stop Abiodun from getting a second term would be resisted on all fronts by Ogun state people, Okusanya called on the National leadership of APC not to be distracted by the shenanigans but to support the moving train of development in the State.
