The group said that for verification the registration number on the voter cards are 030DF100E9295965599 and 90F5B07EC8497525458 respectively.
The group however cautioned the Governor of the state, Dapo Abiodun from making another mistake of putting an alleged certificate forger as the Chairman of the local Government Council.
The letter partly further read, ” Attached are the proofs of the registration which can be verified by anybody on the INEC website.
“In one of the documents he registered on the 25th of January, 2011 with the name OGUNSOLA, ADESINA OLANREWAJU with voter identification number 030DF100E9295965599 as a public servant born on the 8th of June, 1972 while in another he registered on the 15th of June, 2017 with the name OGUNSOLA, ADESINA LANRE with voter identification number 90F5B07EC8497525458 as a businessman born on the 8th of June, 1976.
“To this end he is parading two different age declarations with the same day and Month, (8th of June) but with different years, 1972 and 1976. This act of deceit, false declaration of age and swearing on oath amounts to perjury under section 118 of the Criminal Code which could fetch him a minimum of fourteen years imprisonment.
“It will be recalled, that this same candidate had tendered a fake statement of result from the Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU, as claimed by him, in the documents submitted to the screening Committee of the All Progressives Congress of Obafemi/Owode.
“This was exposed by a letter of response from OOU which was signed by its Deputy Registrar, Mrs Y.O Ogunsanwo on behalf of the Registrar “indicating that the said statement of results submitted to the Screening Committee and for which clarification was sought did not emanate from the University”.
“It is quite clear that with all these fraudulent practices , “a fraud will always be a fraud”, thus OGUNSOLA ADESINA LANRE, who had lived all his life with corrupt practices as shown in these documents will not change tomorrow.
“People like this should not be forced on us to lead, hence OGUNSOLA ADESINA LANRE is unfit, dishonest and can not be transparent or accountable to the people of Obafemi-Owode local government area, if mistakenly elected as the Council Chairman.
“The APC Integrity group for the umpteenth time is hereby cautioning Governor Dapo Abiodun from making another mistake of putting a fraudster and certificate forger as the Chairman of the local Government Council”.
