The All Progressives Congress (APC) says its attention has been drawn to the alleged “politically-sponsored and laughable allegation against the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kwara State governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq that he forged the Senior Secondary School Certificate he presented for election.”
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Oniru, said, “We understand the desperation of the sponsors of this campaign of calumny to get power through the backdoor after the crushing defeat they suffered from the 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 and will surely come to nought. Challenging the popular mandate given to Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq amounts to mere shadow boxing. The outcome of the elections in Kwara is an expression of collective resolve of Kwara electorate for a new progressive order that has long eluded Kwara State.
“Our party affirms its confidence in our governor-elect and equally affirm that all documents he submitted are authentic. We urge our members in Kwara State to exercise no doubt at all. They should rather gear up for the task of setting our dear state on a path to progress under the capable hands of Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq.”
