Rep Bamishile denies accompanying ex-SSG, Oyebanji to obtain governorship forms

Published

on

The member representing Ekiti South Federal Constituency 2  in the House of Representatives under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Hon Richard Olufemi Bamishile on Wednesday dismissed a report making the round that he accompanied another aspirant, the immediate past secretary to the Ekiti State Government, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, to the national secretariat of the party in Abuja to obtain the latter’s nomination form for the forthcoming coming governorship election in the state.

This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, in reaction to a report making the rounds with a group photograph showing the entourage of the former SSG to the APC National Secretariat, with a man resembling the lawmaker, and which the report claimed to be the lawmaker.

Bamishile, who is an aspirant from the South Senatorial District of the State, declared that he was amazed by such a mischievous and misleading report when his supporters and well-wishers started calling him to find out what actually happened.

According to him, “This is mischievous and unfounded propaganda targeted against my personality which is bound to fail. I was in my office at the House of Representatives wing of the National Assembly preparing for the day’s plenary session when my attention was drawn to trash. I could believe this until I saw the fake photograph with my name boldly written as a man who truly resembles me with other colleagues from the National Assembly. But I am not the person. I don’t dress like that

“I have been receiving several phone calls from supporters and well-wishers trying to find out the true situation of things and I can no longer bear the pressure. This is why I have to come out to debunk the fake and false report mainly to gain cheap political popularity which they will never get.”

“As a leading aspirant from the South in the forthcoming governorship election in the state, I remain a candidate to beat and nothing will stop me because the battle is not of me but of God.”

Bamishile  who was a former speaker of the State House of Assembly, therefore, appealed to the leadership of the party  to call those behind the campaign of calumny against his personality to order so as not to destroy the chances of the ruling APC from winning the state governorship election next year
