APC Primaries: Party members accuse Chairman of bribery, thwarting Gov AbdulRazaq’s directive
By Imam Moromoke
Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ifelodun, Offa and Oyun local government have raised alarm over alleged bias of Prince Sunday Adeniran Fagbemi, the State Chairman of party in favor of the incumbent lawmaker representing the federal constituency, Hon. Ismail Kayode Tijani.
As at 5:30pm, voting had just commenced at the venue of the APC House of Representatives primary elections for Ifelodun/Offa/Oyun Federal Constituency.
Multiple impeccable party sources who craved anonymity alleged that “Prince Fagbemi is working to favor Hon. Tijani against other candidates because the lawmaker bought a multimillion Naira worth BMW car for him.”
The source said “You know the Governor is the one giving directives as regards voting decisions of the delegates. Even though the Governor’s decision isn’t in favor of Hon. Tijani, the Party Chairman is trying to thwart the directives of the Governor.”
Fresh Insight’s correspondent was told that the lawmaker bought a 2010 BMW SUV for Prince Fagbemi, which was reportedly announced on a radio program in the State.
As at the time of filling this report, it was gathered that the votes in the election which is being conducted in the premises of a public school in Idofian, Ifelodun local government of Kwara state, may be brought to Ilorin for counting for unknown reasons, barring any last minute change.
