Ogun state apc candidate allegated of forgery

#1
Ogun APC candidate Dapo Abiodun
Sundry allegations of forgery may make the
All Progressives Congress (APC) not to have
a gubernatorial candidate in the 2019
election.
Online reports suggest that candidate Dapo
Abiodun has a case to Ogun APC candidate Dapo Abiodun
Sundry allegations of forgery may make the
All Progressives Congress (APC) not to have
a gubernatorial candidate in the 2019
election.
Online reports suggest that candidate Dapo
Abiodun has a case to answer over
discrepancies in his academic qualifications.
Efforts to get Abiodun’s reactions proved
abortive, as he neither picked his calls nor
replied to text messages but the party
yesterday reaffirmed its support for Abiodun.
Reacting to an allegation of certificate forgery
and perjury levelled against Abiodun, the
Deputy Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr.
Yekini Nabena, argued that the party handed
its governorship ticket to the candidate based
on his school certificate qualification.
“The minimal requirement for the position of
governor is a secondary school certificate and
that was what he declared in his form. The
party acted based on the provision of the
law. Anybody that has issues with his
certificates can approach the courts to seek
redress,” Nabena said.
According to one of the reports, the candidate
“declared only his West African School
Certificate (1978) in the Form CF001 that he
submitted to the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) on October 23,
2018, ahead of the 2019 general election.
“However, when he ran as the APC senatorial
candidate (Ogun East) in 2015, he claimed to
have attended the University of Ife, Ile-Ife
(graduating in 1986) and Kennesaw State
University, Atlanta Georgia, U.S. (1989) in his
INEC form CF001, backed by an affidavit he
swore to at the high court, Abeokuta, Ogun
State.
“Curiously, while he listed B.B.A. (Hons)
Accounting as the degree he got in 1986, as
at then, he was silent on what he studied at
Kennesaw State University. However, in his
official curriculum vitae, he claimed to
possess another degree, B.Eng (Hons) in civil
engineering, presumably received in 1989
from the American university.
“Also, on the website of Heyden Petroleum
Limited where Abiodun is MD/CEO,
underneath his name were listed B.Sc Civil
Engineering and B.B.A Accounting. If he
proceeded immediately to Kennesaw after
graduating from Ife in 1986, he would not
have finished before 1990, as civil
engineering is a four-year course at the
university.”
The report notes: “There are strong
suspicions that he did not do the compulsory
national youth service, even though he
finished his first degree in 1986 — going by
the INEC form CF001 he filled ahead of the
2015 election, supported by an affidavit.
Abiodun was born on May 29, 1960 and was
26 in 1986 when he claimed to have finished
his first degree. The age limit for national
service is 30.
“Apart from the possibility of having
committed perjury either in 2014 or 2018,
there is also the possibility that he skipped
the compulsory national service, which is
punishable under the law.”
Also, a lawyer, Abdulrrafiu Baruwa, reportedly
filed a suit at a high court in Abuja seeking
the candidate’s disqualification over alleged
false information submitted to INEC.
Abiodun’s emergence as candidate of the
APC had pitted him against Ogun State
Governor Ibikunle Amosun.
While the National Working Committee (NWC)
insisted Abiodun would fly the party’s flag,
Amosun declared support for his anointed,
Adekunle Akinlade, accusing the NWC of
underhand dealings.
The intrigues climaxed recently with the
defection of Akinlade and some party
members to the Allied People’s Movement
(APM).
Amosun, who said he tried his best to stop
the defection, had vowed he would use
everything in his capacity to ensure the
success of Akinlade and the others in their
new party.
He said: “When these people came, they told
me they are leaving the APC. I said, ‘No’. But
I couldn’t stop them. In fact, Akinlade has my
full support. I am not going to stop him.
Everything I have, I will use to support him.
Let them try whatever they want to try. We
also have our strategies and I am not going
to hide behind one finger.
“I remain in APC because that’s what those
people want. They want us to leave APC but
they are joking. I will stay in APC to ensure
that Buhari wins in Ogun State and let them
know that they can’t subvert the will of the
state.
“Every day, I will campaign for President
Muhammadu Buhari. We will do everything
possible to ensure Buhari wins massively in
Ogun. But they should not miss it. I, Senator
Ibikunle Amosun, will not support anyone they
are bringing.” his calls nor
