Registration: APC member attacks party’s scribe over comment on Gbemi

Caretaker Public Relations Officer, Ilorin West All Progressives Congress (APC), Adewole Ibraheem, has described as unfounded claims by Alhaji Tajudeen Aro, the party’s spokesman, that Minister of State for Transport, Senator Gbemisola Saraki lured a high-ranking Legislator to have her membership revalidation exercise done at her residence.
He said the Minister was already at her polling unit for the registration only to find out that registrars were not on ground.
Adewole described the party registration and revalidation exercise so far in Kwara State as a charade and fraud, while also calling for the intervention of the National Secretariat of the APC.
Part of the rebuttal reads:
“It is regrettable that the person of the Hon. Minister has been a subject of ridicule by an asinine and cockeyed few in the minority at the party level who has decided to go petty on issues surrounding her presence at her polling unit to enable her revalidate her membership upon her arrival in Kwara State.
Ordinarily, this does not come as a surprise to us, but it is instructive to correct the false claims that the Honorable Minister is not in tune with the happenings in her own political constituency, it is illogical, fallacious and inconsequential in its entirety. The embattled State PRO also went off point to claim that she has just been in the state four times since her appointment as Minister, This is a wanton display of Alhaji Aro’s high level of hypocrisy.
Even the National Headquarters received several petitions from the State Party executive ably led by the State Caretaker Chairman, Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa regarding the hoarding of the registration materials in all the 193 wards and 16 local government areas in the state as evidences provided was acknowledged and subsequently acted upon by the highest organ of our great party at the National level.
The claim that hundreds of thousands of people have registered in the ongoing revalidation and registration exercise of our Party in Kwara is unfounded. Notable Critical Stakeholders of the Party in the state particularly Ilorin west local government has been selectively secluded for revalidation; Prof. Shuaib Oba AbdulRaheem has countlessly visited his polling unit in the same Ajikobi Ward for his revalidation exercise but no registration officers was available at the registration point to get him revalidated which was widely reported in the media by the erudite Professor.
The claim that the Honorable Minister placed a call to a Legislator that her membership revalidation be done at her residence and was allegedly rejected was unfounded. For the record, The Honorable Minister was already present at her polling unit in line with the registration guidelines as she arrived her polling unit in preparation for her revalidation exercise at exactly on Saturday and no registration officials were sighted to revalidate her membership. The Honorable Minister then saw the need to follow the Party’s communication protocol to lodge a complain to the State Caretaker Chairman, Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa of the absence of the registration officers at her polling unit and the complain of the people in the last two months of the registration as she promised to visit the Party Chairman and subsequently lodge complain to the National Headquarters of the party. As a law abiding citizen, She however called for calm among her teeming supporters and party faithfuls present to witness her revalidation exercise.
