Certificate Scandal Rocks Another APC Member
It is the season of certificate scandal and the latest victim is Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, the governorship candidate of the Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress.
It was gathered that the governorship candidate of the party allegedly presented a forged WAEC certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission for the March 2 governorship election.
The states branch of the APC and the media aide to the governorship candidate, Rafiu Ajakaye, debunk the allegation, said it is fake news.
Meanwhile, the party was said to have either cancelled or postponed two programmes that were earlier scheduled as a result of the allegation.
A press conference was organised by the Committee on President Mohamadu Buhari’s campaign visit to Kwara State on Monday scheduled to hold at the new secretariat of the party at the GRA, Ilorin at 11 am was postponed indefinitely via the party’s Whatshap message.
Another programme where the party was to receive decampees from the PDP and other political parties was cancelled outright by 10.30am shortly before its commencement.
The State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Folaranmi Aro, who described the story of the alleged certificate forgery as untrue explained that the press conference was postponed because members of the state campaign committee were yet to conclude their meeting.
He said, “The state committee on the visit of President Buhari met this morning, but we could not conclude our meeting. We are going to meet again at 1 pm today and if we can conclude our meeting, we will call you either by 3 pm or 4 pm today,” he said.
Also, Abdulrazak’s media aide, Ajakaye, described the news story as untrue, adding that his principal submitted genuine documents to INEC.
