A Socio-Political Group, Development for Law based Profit [MDD] has raised caution over surreptitious moves by Dubious Agent, Jimoh Ibrahim to coerce the Free National Constituent Commission [INEC] to carry in his name as People groups Fair Gathering [PDP] possibility for Ondo November Governorship Survey.
The Gathering in an announcement by its Leader, Adesoji Akinlamilo said the late affirmations by Ibrahim that an INEC official requested one million dollars pay off from him is such a weigthy one, to the point that has assist affirmed his distress to have his doomed judegemt authorized to undermine prevalent legal declarations on comparable issues before.
MDD set that INEC as the statutory body managing the lead of races in the nation ought to be permitted to carry out its employment in accordance with surviving rules that everyone must follow without undue impedance and coercion from any quarters.
“We have it on records that Jimoh Ibrahim in his characteristically arrogant manner recently boasted to some of his supporters that he has laid out a well orchestrated media propaganda against INEC with a view to arms-twisting the commission to recognizing his candidature. Else how would someone have the effrontery to accuse INEC of a whooping one million dollars bribe at a time the President Buhari-led administration’s crackdown on corruption using all apparatus including the DSS is really gaining momentum.”
The Group also described as worrisome another allegation by Ibrahim accusing the Ondo State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Olusegun Agbaje of arranging a London Meeting with him over the November election having obviously failed to get the state chapter of the commission do his bidding.
“We are aware that Olusegun Agbaje has always said that the state chapter will not assume the role of the National Body on certain roles which was why it advised the Biyi Poroye faction to get the headquarters’s nod for a supervision of its Ibadan primaries. It is therefore evident that because the National body and even the state shunned the Ibadan exercise, Jimoh Ibrahim and his co-travelers saddened with this development have been looking for a way to blackmail the commission. If he has evidence of the call logs between him and Agbaje on the London meeting let him publish them out as soon as possible and stop the unnecessary attention seeking media brouhaha which is the stock in trade of a drowning man.”
MDD said as stakeholders with concern for the nation’s democratic process, it would not fold it arms and watch some people undermine the gains recorded over the years under some selfish, personal vendetta and self aggrandizement Voyage.
