….Says he lied under oath
A socio-democratic group, Yewa young Frontliners has alleged that the Ogun State governorship candidate of New Nigeria People’s Party, Olufemi Ajadi lied under oath by pretending to be an indigene of the state.
The group in a statement signed by its chairman, Comrade Adekunle Olatunji revealed that investigation conducted revealed that Ajadi was originally from Oyo State, alleging that he has no connection with Ogun to lay claim to the state as his state of origin.
Olatunji described the action of the NNPP guber candidate as scam and pretence to deceive people of the state.
While noting that the state has more than enough people to represent them, the group urged security agencies to investigate and prosecute the governorship candidate.
The statement read in part, “We discovered that there is a scam concerning one of the gubernatorial candidates for the 2023 election in Ogun State.
“Our findings revealed that the NNPP governorship candidate, Olufemi Ajadi is not from Ogun State neither is he from any Iyalode dynasty family in Ilaro.
“It is a scam for him to pretended and lie under oath that he is from Ogun State where findings have revealed that he is an indigene of Oyo State.
“Constitutionally, you can live in an area and contest election, but anybody that is contesting election for the post of a governor should not lie under oath and come to deceive the people of Ogun State.
“We want to call on the necessary agencies to investigate this matter and ensure he is being prosecuted for lying under oath.
“We also want to use this opportunity to warn him to stay clear from Ogun State affairs. If he is really passionate to be a governor, he should go back to Oyo where he came from and compete with Governor Seyi Makinde.
“We have more than enough capable people in Ogun State that can rule us, we don’t need an outsider or a forger to be able to do that.”
Efforts to get reaction from Ajadi were not successful. He did not pick up calls nor reply to text messages sent to him via WhatsApp and SMS.
