AC Denies Meeting In Ilorin


Action Congress (AC) has denied allegation by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, that a meeting was held in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, at the instance of its spokesmen, Lai Mohammed, on the governorship election petition in Osun State.

However, the party described the allegation as paranoia-induced fabrication that has no basis in fact.

Our correspondent reports that the party said no meeting took place in Ilorin or anywhere at all over Osun election petition tribunal or any issue relating to the state.

It noted that Alhaji Lai Mohammed who was said to have presided over the Ilorin meeting was actually in Lagos on that same day. “We, therefore, wonder whether the PDP chairman, Alhaji Ademola Rasaz could have been a victim of hallucination or perhaps he was deliberately misled by those who fed him with the wrong information just to ridicule him,” AC said.

The AC said PDP degenerated to a new low in its crass ignorance by alleging that the so-called meeting deliberated on how to ensure that the tribunal rejects the forensic expert whom Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola is trying to bring to inspect election materials.
