Omisore’s Hands Are Clean, Group Defends APC Reigned Secretary

A fraction of the ruling All Progressives Congress has defended Senator Iyiola Omisore nothing that his resignation as the former National Secretary of the party was not pressured. 

This was contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, by the CASGC Spokesperson, Musa Otigba.

The Conference of APC Support Group Coordinators expressed worry about the way his detractors went to town with distorted narratives to mislead the public, despite the fact that they claimed the Osun politician left voluntarily.

Meanwhile, aggrieved members of the National Working Committee revealed that the two men’s downfall was due to the way they handled the party’s audit, their refusal to provide the party’s account for a year, their lack of transparency, their violation of the party constitution, and the fact that they ran a one-man operation without the support of the National Working Committee.

In a swift reaction, Otigba noted that they found it outrageous for some mischievous persons to trumped-up allegations published in the media against the duo regarding financial impropriety, maladministration and high-handedness.

He said, “Sequel to this, it has become imperative for us to correct this erroneous impression, situate the issues in proper perspective and set the record straight. Not only is this allegation misleading, it is mischievous, baseless and unfounded to say the least. For the record, what led to Omisore’s resignation has nothing to do with the above; neither was he indicted nor found complicit in any ‘infractions’ allegedly committed by Adamu. It was simply a personal decision done in good faith and for the progress of the party.

“Even the party has debunked the claim when the acting national chairman, Senator Abubakar Kyari, said the party has no case of financial impropriety against former national chairman Adamu and national secretary Omisore.

“For the naysayers and negative ad peddlers, Senator, Omisore was not pressured to resign, rather he took the noble action voluntarily based on his conviction, principle and integrity as a loyal party man to pave the way for easy resolution of the crisis within the party. Senator Omisore should rather be commended for this noble act as not many people have that kind of heart to do what he did at the time he did it.

“Omisore’s hands are clean. He stands tall with his shoulders raised high. He wasn’t accused of any embezzlement, he resigned because he was loyal to the party and his boss, Senator Abdullahi Adamu. Nobody forced or pressured him to resign. He resigned as a loyal party member with his integrity intact.”

The response comes barely two weeks after Omisore and Senator Abdullahi Adamu, were formally announced to have resigned from their positions as party leaders by Acting National Chairman, Senator Abubakar Kyari.
