Frontline Governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Osun State, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi has debunked rumours that he is working for President Muhammadu Buhari and that Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu is sponsoring him.
In a statement by the Director of his Campaign Directorate, Comrade Olalere Fagbola, the gubernatorial aspirant stated that the wicked story is the handiwork of opponents who ostensibly are afraid of the overwhelming support he is enjoying in the state, noting that the first balloon of mischief with which he was initially labelled was that he was a neophyte trying to reap where he had not sewed before it was punctured by the state Party Chairman.
The Chairman, Hon Sola Adagunodo had while putting the record straight, confirmed that Dr Ogunbiyi,as a silent achiever, had been deeply involved in financing the party and its reconciliation processes in the past three years.
He noted that since their rumours had refused to fly, they are now latching on another fallacy which Ogunbiyi described as unfounded in its entirety..
He explained that his choice of PDP which he affirmed as the best party and frontliner in deepening democratic governance in Nigeria is not negotiable and that it is even inconceivable for anyone to imagine that he (Ogunbiyi) would work against the party (PDP) which success story he has humbly been part of.
As a firm believer and man of strong conviction in his mission to usher in good things of life for the people, Dr Ogunbiyi stressed that no amount of blackmail and character assassination would deter him from his resolve to put Osun State on the front burner of economic recovery.
He then called on his supporters to ignore the blackmailers whom he noted are politicians with diminishing acceptance. In serving the people of the state, Dr Ogunbiyi takes delight in the strong belief that history and posterity would vindicate him as a true man whose governorship aspiration is a call to duty.
