The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the allegation that Kwara Governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, forged his Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSSC) as laughable.
A report broke out last week alleging that Abdulrahman forged result submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the state’s gubernatorial election.
Reacting to the allegation, the National Publicity Secreatry of APC, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said in a statement Thursday night, that the allegation was politically motivated.
Read his statement below;
Our attention has been drawn to the politically-sponsored allegation against the APC Kwara Governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, that he forged the SSSC he presented for election.
We understand the desperation of the sponsors of this campaign of calumny to get power through the back door after the crushing defeat they suffered from Kwara electorate in the last general elections.
While it is the right of the rejected opposition and their proxies to approach the election tribunal relying on their flimsy and false claims, we assure Kwarans that it is an exercise in futility.
Issa-Onilu said that nothing would come out of the allegation and Abdulrazaq remains the candidate of the people.
Onilu also assured supporters of APC in the state that He, however, stressed that all documents Abdulrahman submitted to INEC for the election were authentic.
