The Chairman of the Ogun state Labour Party, Com Abayomi Arabambi, has cleared the air over a controversial letter allegedly written by him and sent to the former Governor of the state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, requesting for the sum of N20 million.
Arabambi who dismissed the letter through a press statement described it as fake and useless attempt by those he called ‘Cyberdogs’ to tarnish his image.
In the said letter, Arabambi was said to be requesting for money from Senator Amosun to pay lawyers who stood for him and his governorship candidate Ms. Module Sanyaolu, at the tribunal to wrestle the omission of their party’s logo from the ballot paper during the last governorship election.
His words, “My attention has been drawn to a letter being circulated through the social media by some cyber dogs stating that I, Comrade Abayomi Arabambi purportedly requested former Gov Ibikunle Amosun to pay up the legal cost of our tribunal case against Gov Abiodun.
” I wish to state it categorically clear that I know nothing about the letter and that the letter did not, and could never have emanated from me. It is the work of some hungry politicians seeking relevance at all cost.
” I wish to tell the entire world that I have no deal with the former governor as far as the tribunal case is concerned. The content of the letter itself is laughable, ridiculous, fake and useless.
“Let me tell everybody who cares to know that those behind these useless letter are some miscreants looking for what to eat. The duo (name withheld ) have been making efforts to blackmail me and tarnish my good image, all to satisfy their paymasters.
“It is very unfortunate that these miscreants could forge my signature and that of the governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Ogun State, Ms Modupeola Sanyaolu, (due to the fact that we have been in the same party with them) to satisfy a selfish and devilish agenda. It won’t work.
“I want to once again emphasise that the letter did not emanate from me or Ms Sanyaolu, neither did it emanate from the Labour Party in Ogun State. The general public should disregard it in its entirety.”
