Call For Aiyedatiwa’s Disqualification: Examine Your Health Status, Saka Ogunleye Lambasts Adeniran Oyebade

The LACO-FS Director- General, Mr Saka Yusuf Ogunleye has lambasted Dr Adeniran Oyebade calling of President Tinubu to disqualify the incumbent governor of Ondo State, Hon Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa from the APC primaries ahead of the November 16 Governorship Election, describing him as a jester.

“Adeniran Oyebade is a jester; excuse, is that how democracy is being practised in America where he puportedly came from? That an incubent governor should be denied a right to contest an election?

Ogunleye said with the statement credited to Adeniran, he asked the American based critic to seek for medical assistance, saying no healthy individual could ask President Tinubu to ban a sitting governor from contesting election allow by the constitution.

Calling the president to go against same Constitution he swore to defend as president and leader of our party, sounds funny and Dr. Adeniran should please examine his health status,” Yusuf-Ogunleye urged.

“We doubt his claim of ever working in a civilised society if this statement is from such a fellow. Let him point out reasons a sitting governor should not contest for an election when the Constitution provides him the opportunity to contest.

Also in another statement, the DG has punctured a claim by the camps of Aiyedatiwa’s opponents in the coming primary election, that the governor was deliberately excluded from the list of invitees to the commissioning of the Lagos light rail infrastructure, which was performed by President Bola Tinubu.

The governor’s critics intoned that since other Southwest governors were in attendance apart from Aiyedatiwa, it meant that the President did not approve of his candidature.

But replying, Yusuf-Ogunleye said drawing such a conclusion was laughable ” because Mr. Governor was duly invited for the commissioning ceremony but he took excuse to be absent because of some pressing State assignments.”
