The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kwara State chapter’s, attention
has been drawn to the circulation of forged documents by the Action
Congress of Nigeria (ACN) to discredit the ruling government, having
failed in their mischievous attempt to incite the public against
government’s land policy currently under review. ACN has circulated
inciting rumours, while it had also posted on the social media the
reported burglary at state Ministry of Finance.
This was contained in a statement signed by kwara PDP Director of
Publicity Alhaji Mas’ud Adebimpe and made available to newsmen in
The statement reads in part: “The party wonders when the ACN became a
security outfit that now reports incidences of burglars and robbery.
Therefore, we strongly believed that the ACN may have hard
fore-knowledge of the alleged burglary case, otherwise how come they
knew that the bandits were searching for documents of government
transaction dated back to 2003.
“As a party, we wish to call on the Inspector General of Police and
the Director General of the State Security Service to as a matter of
urgency apprehend the leadership of ACN in the State as we suspect
foul play on the alleged rubbery case at the state Ministry of
Finance, currently being investigated by security agencies in the
“ The fake documents which the opposition party had allegedly been
circulating in the State contains various information about
government’s transaction aimed at deceiving the people ahead of
forthcoming local government elections in the State”.
“The said documents authored by the State chapter of ACN using pseudo
names was to give semblance of alleged robbery case in the State
Ministry of Finance. Therefore, this development requires thorough
investigation of ACN by the security agencies.
As a party, we consider it necessary to alert the general public that
the ACN is desperate to paint the state government in bad light
following the loss being recorded on daily basis by the party both in
membership and at the election tribunals.
Contributing to this was the recent setback the party suffered in
Offa local government where the dubious victory was thrown out as well
as the Etiosa Development Council, Lagos State, where Obanikoro of PDP
equally defeated the so-called National Leader of their party, Bola
Ahmed Tinubu in his ward and local government area.
These developments have not only devastated them but further
diminished the ACN. Therefore, the opposition party is prepared to go
to any length to misinform the general public about the happenings in
the state using forged documents.
The party wishes to reiterate our call to the security agencies
investigating the alleged robbery to continue in their good work”.
