The Progressive Grand Alliance (PGA) in a Press Statement has berated Hon. James Faleke, the major sponsor of Alhaja Layeni Kafayat one of the aspirant who lost in the just concluded APC LCDA election in Ojodu.
Alhaja Layeni Kafayat had presented a fake WAEC result to the party’s electoral screening committee, an act which has been described an outright violation of the party’s constitution and the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.
Hon. Faleke in his apology for his conduct in the charade during the APC LCDA primary election stated that his actions was necessitated by his motivation to eliminate and curb the move by some party members to impose their family members on the party at the expense of others, an act which he claimed had become a long-standing culture in the party across all levels.
Responding to his statement, the Spokesperson of the group, Comrade Lanre Adaramola berated the Hon. James Faleke for his ignoble attempt to drag others in the mud with him.
According to him, the unwarranted statement of Hon. James Faleke was no doubt aimed at the National APC leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Other GAC leaders.
According to him, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinu Daughter is the Iyaloja General in Lagos State, Asiwaju’s wife is the Senator representing Lagos Central, Remi Tinubu’s sister is a 2nd term Commissioner after being a 3 term Assembly Member, Tajudeen Olusi the most senior GAC member has his son has the Lagos Island Central Chairman, while Lai Mohammed’s son is the representative of Ikeja Constituency 1 at the National House of Assembly”
Comrade Lanre Adaramola stated that the All Progressive Congress (APC) has it structure deeply rooted in fairness and meritocracy and would never prioritize any other unconstitutional means over the party’s cores and values.
He also added that the recent utterances made by Hon. James Faleke only signifies his bitterness as his chosen candidate who he had heavily sponsored during the election had not only lost out at the election but has also been found to have committed a criminal offense.
In his words,” Faleke himself is a product of the system as he never participated in any primary election yet has been Sole Administrator, Chairman twice and a three time House of Reps member.”
“These benefits he enjoyed as a Cardinal Odunmbaku’s political godson, and as a result of this he had no moral authority to address the issue”
The group also warned him against making any further utterances which does not represent the interest and principles of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
