The Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Ogun State Chapter has declared Olamiposi Ogini as persona-non grata for allegedly parading himself as Chairman of the Council,and calling on residents to disregarded his claim.
Penpushing reports that this was made known in a statement signed by the State Chairman, Asiwaju Adedamola Abdu-Lateef, and made available to journalists on Saturday, in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
The statement said, Abdu-Lateef remains the authentic Chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC),in the state, emphasisng that until the expiration of his tenure in two months time.
“My attention has been drawn to claim by one Olamiposi Ogini, parading himself as the Chairman of the Ogun State chapter of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC);, the statement stressed.
‘This is to outrightly notify all stakeholders, members of our group, the good people of Ogun state and the press that I, Adedamola Abdu-Lateef remain the authentic Chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in the state until the expiration of my tenure, come December, which is just in two months time’.
“My emergence as the Chairman was not by proxy or selection but by due election at the Ogun state INEC office in December 2019 by the amiable and ever patriotic members of the council. So, claim by Ogini that he is the number one Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) member in Ogun State should be disregarded’
“Let me also stress that the claim is a deliberate attempt to distort the peace and tranquility of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) and to create unnecessary rancour among our members, which in turn could drag the council into an awful state of jeopardy,” he stated.
Penpushing further reports that in the statement, Abdu-lateef, while referring to Ogini as an impostor, and a man of questionable character, pointing out that he is not fit to be a leader within the State Council.
“Ogini is just an impostor by definition and that alone paints him unfit to qualify as a leader because a man with questionable characters is not worthy of the feat. More so, the kind of politics being practiced in Ogun state does not accommodate a cretin like him in a leadership position.
“Ogun state is known nation-wide for politics based on truth and transparency and Ogun people are not known for politics that attacks stakeholders, political leaders, state governor as done by Ogini. That is not the kind of politics we are known for. It is only an alien like Ogini who has no respect for elders that we can trace to such in Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC)’.
“Ogun state is one state that is politically sophisticated and one alien from Ilesha in far away Osun state cannot come here and start distorting our politics. If Ogini is interested in becoming the Chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), he should wait till the end of my tenure. He has to wait till the end of this administration to contest the election’.
‘I must say that Ogini is not even qualified to be a councilor not to talk of leading the umbrella of political parties in Ogun State. I must reiterate finally that I, Adedamola Abdu-lateef remains the authentic Chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in Ogun State”, he stated.
