Ogun NNPP Condemns Attempt To Blackmail Guber Candidate, Ajadi As Non- Indigene


The Ogun State chapter of the New Nigeria Peopleā€™s Party (NNPP), has berated a group, Yewa Young FronLiners (YYF), over a report credited to it claiming that the governorship candidate of the party in the 2023 general elections, Ambassador Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, is not from the state.


The party in a statement by the state Public Relations Officer (PRO) and campaign organisation of the gubernatorial candidate, Ajadi Oguntoyinbo Movement, Comrade Olowu Olayemi, said the group is made up of political jobbers whose propaganda, lies and blackmail is their stock in trade.


Olayemi said those behind the erroneous report are not far fetched as they are unscrupulous elements within the party in the state who have sold their conscience for love of inducements.


It would be recalled that YYF had accused Ajadi of impersonation and lying on oath, urging the Nigerian Police Force and the Department of State Security to investigate an alleged impersonation allegedly committed by Ajadi.


But Olayemi in his reaction, said the group knows nothing about the party’s gubernatorial candidate and just trying to beat around the bush, stating that though Ajadi was born in Ibadan but lived all his life in Ilaro, where his mother comes from and Ibafo where he has many properties and companies and these were shown clearly in all documents and forms submitted for the election.


While maintaining that there was no where Ajadi lied on oath or denied being born in Ibadan, he stressed that Ajadi had lived most of his life over 40 years in Ilaro and Ibafo, noting that by naturalisation, Ajadi is also an indigene of Ogun state.


He enjoined the group to go and verify if it is not clear to them that Ajadi swore on oath that he was born in Ibadan, Oyo state but living in Torotoro Quarters, Ibafo in Obafemi Owode local government area of Ogun state for many years.


Olayemi declared that where on earth do they see where Ajadi lied on oath, advising them to do away with politics of bitterness, propaganda and find other means of coughing out money from their machinery.


The statement reads in part, “Our attention has been drawn to a reports on an online media platform credit to an unpopular and self acclaimed social political group called Yewa Young FrontLiners (YYF) that His Excellency Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo is not an indigene of Ogun State.


“This unpopular group said Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo is not from Iyalode Dynasty Family in Ilaro.


“We could have ignored them because we know that this group are seeking unnecessary popularity and in order not to allow them to use there ignorant to mislead the good people of Ogun state, hence, the need for clarification.


“To put the records straight, we know from good authority that this group is being sponsored by the corrupt politicians within NNPP in Ogun state in an attempt to evade justice as to the evil they perpetrated in the last governorship election.


“This set of individuals betrayed the party they claimed they love, they took part in anti party activities because of the money they were given. We have it on good authority the details of the amount they collected in order to betrayed the course of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Ogun state Chapter.


“At the moment we are waiting on the National leadership of the party to take a decision before we know our next line of action, but in due time they will be called upon to explain their action on what happen and the role they played in the eve of gubernatorial election.


“Again for the avoidance of doubts, Amb Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo remains steadfast, dedicated and committed to a new Nigeria and he is a bonafide indigene of Ogun state by naturalisation.


“We challenge anybody who has information that prove otherwise to come to the mainstream media and make their case.”
