The Kwara State All Progressives Congress had reacted to a press release credited to the Kwara State Peoples Democratic party ( PDP), Chairman Hon. Babatunde Mohammed who called for the prosecution of an aide of the governor Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo who was allegedly accused of possession of illegal arms.
According to a press statement signed and made available to newsmen in Ilorin on Sunday by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, said Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo, who is an SSA on Rural Mobilization to the Kwara State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq was never caught with any kind of weapon or ammunition.
The Kwara State Command of the Nigerian Police Force has shed light on what transpired and it is sheer hypocrisy and flagrant distortion of facts by the opposition.
Kwara APC under the leadership of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq had defied the norms against all odds and had rid of the state of political thuggery and hooliganism unlike in the gloomy days of PDP where there was state-sponsored and motivated thuggery.
The memory of Offa robbery is still fresh. The suspects fingered in the glooming robbery were aides of the government. It was even said that many of the guys who perpetrated the act were ’employed’ by the then government to carry out such nefarious activities.
Esinrogunjo was found with personal protective charms which are within his rights. The video was deliberately taken and released to distort the facts as well as to cast aspersions on the goodwill enjoyed by the APC-led government.
At this Juncture, we would like to call on the authorities to fish out the blackmailers who threw professionalism to the wind and decided to be used as a tool to dehumanize the revered aide and violate his rights.
Kwara PDP should also be reminded that Kwarans are smarter and understand their style of politics. The acceptance and popularity of the APC is still a nightmare for them, hence their penchant for propaganda and facts distortion. Our advice for Kwara PDP is to be creative by telling Kwarans what they did when they were in power and why they (the people) should trust them again instead of this lowly charade.
