Oke dismisses purported report allegedly disqualifying him

THE Olusola Oke Campaign Organisation has dismissed a purported security report which allegedly indicted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Ondo State, saying such report does not exist.

In a statement by its Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Kunle Adebayo, the purported security report exists only in the imagination of its sponsors.

While calling on the people of Ondo State to ignore the report, the campaign organisation said: “We hereby state that such concocted report only exists in the minds of the suspicious Deji Ademuyiwa and his sponsors.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Olusola Oke was thoroughly screened by all the security agencies, particularly the State Security Service (SSS), INEC and the Peoples Democratic Party”.

“For the purpose of emphasis, he was adjudged clean and pronounced fit and qualified to contest the 2012 governorship election in Ondo State.”

It added that “all the projects he executed while in OSOPADEC and NDDC are still standing to his credit.

“It is not like the current OSOPADEC where an official was found to have owned over 20 exotic cars and mismanaged  over N63 billion.

If such report exists, it is only reasonable that a transparent person with baggage of documentary evidences, as claimed by these paid entities, should have approached the court or send same to the security agencies.

“It is not uncommon for this dirty politics and criminal intention to be brandished around by carpet baggers just to seek undue recognition because of the dwindling fortune of the outgoing incumbent as October 20 inches closer.

“Unfortunately for these willing tools, the people of Ondo State are knowledgeable and are ready to vote Olusola Oke and the PDP because of the direct economic benefit they derived when the party was in government in Ondo State,” it stated.
