One of the leading aspirants for Kwara State number one seat, Hon. Moshood Mustapha has denied having any financial deal with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in the state.
A statement released by Media aide to Hon. Moshood Mustapha,
Abdulazeez Bankole on Tuesday in Ilorin said recent allegation was the contempt of his political rivals who see him as a thorn in their flesh.
Bankole said the latest of their “bring him down” strategy was contained in an article by a faceless writer captioned “Public Notice MM has bought over Kwara PDP”, the writer went ahead to indict some PDP stalwarts as beneficiaries of Moshood Mustapha’s cash gift.
This is very laughable considering the personality of those mentioned by the nameless writer. Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo who was alleged to have received the sum of N10 million from the Ilorin born politician is known across the state as a man of impeccable character whose love for the PDP cannot be questioned.
Also, Hon. Alajagunsi has built a reputation that is beyond reproach and Prof. Oba Abdulraheem has been an exceptional leader who has sought to govern kwara state since 2011. He is still in the race for the governor. How cheap therefore, it is to write that he has traded his legitimate ambition for $10,000 dollars.
Dr. Amuda Aluko is a community leader of repute who has been consistent in his struggle for progressive causes in kwara state.
Alh. Oba Ajara and others whose names were mentioned in the article are elder statesmen within the PDP who will not destroy a party which they have suffered to build for a pot of porridge.
Beside, former federal lawmaker has not met most of the PDP leaders being defamed in the last two years, therefore the story of Moshood Mustapha buying off PDP leaders is false, derogatory and a no-brainer.
The media aide said Mustapha would rather channel his resources towards human capital development across the state rather than purchasing a party platform.
He said it is deducible that the article is a figment of the writer’s imagination and it was based on falsehood and character assassination.
Hon. MM’s political detractors should bear in mind that MM is in the gubernatorial race and he is in it for good. Therefore, no amount of maligning can stop him from embarking on his God’s ordained mandate of moving Kwara state to greater heights.
