(Politics) Detractors Spread Collapse Rumour @semaotakeit

Chief-Adebayo-Alao-Akala-360x225A former Governor of Oyo State, Adebayo Alao-Akala, has dismissed rumours that he collapsed at the venue of the Labour Party National Executive Committee meeting in Ibadan on Wednesday.

Alao-Akala, in a statement by his media aide, Oludare Ogunlana, on Thursday, described the rumour as the handiwork of “detractors who were not comfortable his popularity.”

The statement also said that the Alao-Akala Campaign Organisation had succeeded in tracing the true owners of the website which published the report.

It read, “Based on a false report which emerged online that Alao-Akala had collapsed at the venue of the LP National Executive Committee meeting in Ibadan on Wednesday and was rushed to the hospital, we blame the opposition parties for the publication.

“It is not true that Alao-Akala is battling any form of ailment or that he collapsed at the meeting as reported by an online publication outfit. We challenge the publisher of the news medium to come out openly if the news was true. Why didn’t other journalists who were at the venue get the news?

“The Nigerian Guild of Editors should look into the issue of unregistered news media that spread lies in order to please certain political parties for pecuniary interest.”

Ogunlana also called on the people of the state not to be swayed by the antics of those who were against the aspiration of the former governor, saying that Alao-Akala’s government could not be compared with those that succeeded it.

Oba Adetona who paid a host to the President at his palace in Ijebu-Ode during a presidential visit to his palace, urged the President to present his programme to the people of Ijebuland for them to format their opinion on whether to vote him or not.

President Jonathan had arrived Awujale palace at 11:15 am in company of the national Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, Adamu Mu’azu, the governor of Bayelsa state, Seriake Diskson, governor of Ondo state, Dr. Segun Mimiko, former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel.

According to Awujale,”In Ijebu here, it is not possible for any Oba, not even in Ijebu, in Yorubaland, to go out and say vote for this, vote for that, that person is looking for trouble, but give them the opportunity to present their programme so that people can make up their minds on what to do, I think this is a very sound democratic principle and that is what I have decided to do, to give you the opportunity of meeting with the people.
