Politicians fault APC National Vice Chairman’s allegations against Omisore


Reactions have continued to trail the allegations of the National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) North West, Salihu Mohammed Lukman against the party’s National Secretary, Sen. Iyiola Omisore.

Politicians across political divides and followers are not left out in defending the former Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, Omisore who they described as a man of integrity and an epitome of transparency.

In an exclusive chat with Nigerian Platform in Osogbo, Osun State capital on Friday, Hon. Femi Odofin described the allegation against Omisore as not only frivolous but also nebulous.

According to Odofin, who described Omisore as a political juggernaut and a resilient leader, “Omisore has never been found in such a messy activity since his long sojourn in politics”.

“Rather he always go out of his way to mobilize funds and other incentives for successful elections for whatever party he belonged to”, Odofin said.

He pointed out that whoever is cajoled into believing such an unfounded allegation against the APC National Secretary, does not understand the intrigues of politics or blindfolded by the envious ranting of a hypocritical mind, clearly represented by the APC National Vice Chairman.

Recall that APC National Vice Chairman, Lukman had on Wednesday, while featuring on an AIT programme accused Omisore of mismanaging funds allocated for last year’s Osun governorship campaign and allegedly causing APC’s defeat in the election.

Lukman equally accused the party’s National Secretary of further dividing the Osun Sate chapter of the party and called for his resignation.

Lukman equally asked the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, to resign for a Christian to take over in the interest of fairness, justice and equity.

Meanwhile, Hon. Odofin, while speaking on behalf of many other lovers and admirers of Sen. Omisore said Lukman’s erroneous comments was obviously faulty, as Omisore has never been defeated in any election, in his local government, against all odds.

He advised the APC National Chairman to retract his statement, saying his alleged readiness to battle a strong personality like Omisore will only expose him (Lukman) to ridicule and political oblivion.
