Ex-Sports Minister Was APC Mole In Jonathan’s Government – PDP

Bolaji AbdullahiThe Peoples Democratic Party, Kwara State chapter, yesterday accused a former Sports Minister, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, who publicly declared his membership of the All Progressives Congress on Wednesday, as being an APC mole in President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.

The State Publicity Secretary of PDP, Mr. Rex Olawoye, in a statement on Thursday, said the party was not surprised at Abdullahi’s declaration for APC.

The PDP spokesman alleged that unknown to many Nigerians, Abdullahi on Saturday, February 8, 2014 secretly registered as a card-carrying member of the APC in Kwara State.

He stated that Abdullahi actually became a member of the APC five months ago, before President Jonathan sacked him as minister.

Olawoye said, “His latest ‘open declaration’ was only a façade to deceive unsuspecting members of the public. This development has therefore evidently confirmed the fear of well-meaning Nigerians, who raised the alarm then that Mallam Abdullahi, was planted in the cabinet of President Goodluck Jonathan by the opposition APC to sabotage the government of Nigeria from within. The good news, though, is that he was spotted by the Presidency way before he could do further damage to the government he pretended to be serving.

“On national development, there is no worst case of self-indictment than that of a man who served for an upward of four years as a Commissioner of Education to now turn around to lament over the quality of education in the state, and by extension, the country at large!

“What can Abdullahi point to as his concrete contributions to the socio-economic development of Kwara State in the last eight years that he presided over critical state and federal ministries and parastatals? How has he impacted on the lives of his people within the period that he held sway as both minister in charge of sports and the youths ministries?”

Olawoye stated that it was only when Abdullahi and his handlers were able to truthfully answer the above questions that he could have the moral high ground to disparage the claimed impressive achievements recorded over the years by the PDP-led Federal Government.

Olawoye labelled Abdullahi as a liability to any political party that he joins, adding that the former minister had a past riddled with controversies.

He, therefore, advised the APC to ensure that Abdullahi was asked to first purge himself of the vestiges of the past before he could be formally admitted into its fold.

Olawoye said, “Abdullahi should be asked to seek the forgiveness of families of innocent public school teachers, who his obnoxious and draconian policies when he was Kwara State Commissioner of Education, sent to their earlier graves”.

    • why did people like criticizing? He change lazy people who are not ready to work and collect govt money free of charge, he make them serious in there various teaching schools with is policies. let talk about
      the reality and forget about the old story, his a man of vision…… welcome to A.P.C….

  3. When you meet Bolaji Abdullahi, our Sports Minister, for the first time, you instantly see that he is a man of great confidence and passion. Sensible, amicable, ardent about his duties, he seems an opposite to the many public servants

  4. this is a big minus to the PDP, because this man was one of the few shining lights in jonathan’s government. our success in sports as a nation is traceable to his efforts as sports minister.

    • HE became a minister long before APC was created. So, which came first the sperm or the baby? Mentally lazy PDP.
