Two former govs behind pull-him-down scheme — Ogun Govt alleges

…Warns general public of talebearers

The general public has been alerted by Ogun State Government about the clandestine plans by some mischievous and disgruntled elements who have mapped out plans to constantly generates lies and libelous publications, fake and slanderous news, against the governor and government of Ogun State and its principal officials.

The Media Consultant to the Governor of Ogun State Ifekayode Akinbode disclosed that the devilish plan was hatched at a meeting held recently by the governorship candidate of a leading opposition party that lost out in the recent governorship election in the state, a cocky former Commissioner for Special Duties in Ogun State and the State Secretary of the said party.

According to him, the meeting which took place at a popular hotel in Abeokuta owned by the candidate’s father resolved to engage yellow journalists and blackmail bloggers to embark on serious mudslinging against the governor and government of Ogun State and its principal officials.

“This pull-him-down scheme also involves two former governors of Ogun State and is being bankrolled by a popular pools magnate,” he lamented.

Akinbode  urged members of the public to be wary of these talebearers, agents of falsehood and their sponsors who have decided to toe this devilish path, having realised the growing popularity of Governor Dapo Abiodun after his re-election and the futile attempts being made to stop him.

In the same vein, he warned that the rule of law will unfailingly be brought to bear on anyone that publishes fake news against the governor and government of Ogun State with intent to defame the Administration, cause disaffection, and create crisis in the State.

Akinbode assured that the Ogun State Government reaffirmed that its duties and obligations are “to the people and residents of our dear Gateway State.”

He said that  no amount of fake news and evil machinations or political gangsterism will deter it from taking Ogun State to greater heights and leaving the state better than it was met by Prince Dapo Abiodun.
