APC Speaks On Kwara Governor-Elect Forging SSCE Certificate

Published

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the allegation that Kwara Governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, forged his Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSSC).

Abdularasaq was alleged to have forged the SSSC he presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the state’s gubernatorial election.

In a statement on Thursday, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, described the allegations as laughable.

“Our attention has been drawn to the politically-sponsored allegation against the APC Kwara Eovernor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, that he forged the SSSC he presented for election,” he said.

“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,” he added.

Issa-Onilu noted that challenging the popular mandate given to Abdulrazaq amounted to mere shadow boxing.

He said the outcome of the elections in Kwara was an expression of a collective resolve of Kwara electorate for a new progressive order that had long eluded the state.

The APC spokesperson, however, stressed that the party was confident in the Kwara governor-elect, affirming that all documents he submitted to INEC for the election were authentic.
