My attention has been drawn to a statement written by one Comrade Ayo Omoniyi titled “Toba Oke Media Aide Swindle Nigerian In South Africa” which is currently in circulation
I wish to categorically say that during the Campaign that ushered in Apostle Oloruntoba Oke as the Chairman Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government a five member media committee having my humble self Ayodele Lawal as Chairman with Niyi Adewunni ,Waidi Agbeniga ,Joshua Okeniran and Evang.Osagie as members were constituted
That after the election I still remain the Chairman of the committee because it is still functioning and we advice and publicise Apostle One’s activities.
That in as much as I do not want to either defend Niyi or stand against him I want to state that the issue on the ground is basically a business transaction between two consenting adults.
That he (Niyi) has paid part of the money to you and some to your representative in the name of Elder Ranti.
That at the commencement of the transaction neither Apostle Oloruntoba Oke nor his representative was part of it
That dragging the name of Apostle Oloruntoba Oke into purely a business transaction between two adults is not only ridiculous but an attempt to disparage the name ,career and credibility he has build across time .
That as a professional journalist with over twenty years experience, the headline is not only wrong but lace malice.
That in as much as I will not like to engage in war of words with anybody,I hereby advise Comrade Ayo Omoniyi to stop further publication of the malicious article because the law of libel is no respecter of any comrade.
