Cabal within your government want to stop me from contesting, Oke cries out to Buhari

by Our Reporter

The Olusola Oke Campaign Organization has cried out to President Muhammadu

Buhari to save him from a cabal within his government bent on stopping at
all cost tye Alliance for Democracy (AD) gubernatorial hopeful from
contesting the November 26, 2016 governorship election by resorting to
underhand methods.
Addressing a Press Conference in Akure on Tuesday, the Director General of
the Organisation, Mr Bola Ilori, specifically, fingered the Governor of
Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai, Governor of Taraba State and Chairman of the
APC Primaries Election Committee in Ondo State, Alhaji Badaru, Minister of
Works, Raji Fasola, Minister of Solid Minerals, Kayode Fayemi and the Ogun
State Governor, Ibikunle Amosu among others as the arrowhead of the plot
to stop him from contesting the election to clear the way for their
protégé, Rotimi Akeredolu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is
also vying for the Ondo State governorship position.
His words: “This plot to stop Chief Oke from contesting the election is
simply to clear the way for their protégé, Rotimi Akeredolu of the All
Progressives Congress (APC), who is also vying for the Ondo State
governorship position.
“The plan of these people was to prevent Olusola Oke from contesting the
election because their candidate, Akeredolu, is not in contention, having
lost relevance with the people, thus they have resorted to lots of
underhand tactics to stop him.
“We are aware of the pedigree of President Buhari, his uprightness and his
zero tolerance to dirty tricks to get advantage of people, even against
his avowed antagonists, but these cabal are using the paraphernalia of the
Federal Government with impunity to get unsavory advantage thus tainting
his good works.
“When they noted that Olusola Oke was becoming popular by the day while
their protégé lag behind in the build up to the election, they have
resorted to series of underhand tactics to get him out of the race thus
leaving the APC candidate as the major candidate in the election owing to
the festering crisis in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)
“First, was the attempt to award a N10 billion contract without due
process to Akeredolu’s community and plough back N7 Billion out of it into
his election, money which would be used to rig the election. Also, they
have tried severally to compromise the Independent National Electoral
Commission (INEC) in Ondo State without success given the media
altercations between the APC and INEC of recent.
“Next, they have surreptitiously instigated the Legal Adviser of the
Alliance for Democracy, a man who is not a candidate in the Ondo State
election, to institute a suit in the Court. While we are not against this
action since it is the fundamental rights of anybody to resort to the
Court as an arbiter, but we have credible information from a meeting held
by these cabal last week in Abuja, where they boasted that they will
ensure that the Judge who will sit on the matter would be compromised to
give ex-experte injunction against Chief Olusola Oke.”
This in itself, he noted, “amounts to double”speak from top officials of
government officials of an government noted for its uprightness.
“When you accuse judges as being corrupt and you did indeed  moved against
some of them, isn’t it an irony that members of the same government are
the ones boasting of compromising a Judge that would sit on the matter in
Court? Such, Your Excellency, is the desperation of these cabal who are
hell-bent on tainting your administration’s reputation, he regretted
“But their best joker, which has been lent credence to by the popular
boasts in town in the past few days by Akeredolu and his minders is the
ploy to instigate the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to
invite and possibly detain Chief Oke days before the election over phantom
allegations. Chief Olusola Oke has been severally investigated and cleared
by the anti-graft agency of any financial impropriety, but of recent, they
have been putting a lot of pressure on the Commission to harass him of
late with a view to make him look as if he is guilty, a development which
is far from the truth.”
He wondered why this renewed onslaught against Oke now that the elections
were a mere two weeks away, adding : “but we are abreast of their tricks
which will continue to fail. We want to express our absolute confidence
that he had nothing to fear from any anti-graft agencies having left
office on a clean slate 12 years ago and having been cleared severally
“We also want to quickly tell his traducers that Olusola Oke was a
part-time member of the Niger Delta Development Commission and he was
never involved in any untoward activities while in office. The allegations
against him are mere tissues of lies that had been found to be so by the
proper authorities
“We are aware of their evil plots to perpetrate perfidy in Ondo State
during the election and the people of the State are watching them keenly.
We want to appeal to Mr. President to please be aware of this grand plot
to harass Chief Olusola Oke, distract him from meeting the people in his
campaign tours and possibly to get him disqualified through unsavory
The details of all the nocturnal meeting they have been holding, we are
aware. It is not a new ploy and we are abreast of it. It happened few days
to the APC primaries when this same Rotimi Akeredolu wrote a petition
against him in which his tissues of lies were later exposed all to get him
disqualified because he knows that he is but a mere babe in politics and
cannot win the election.
“Now, they have started again, putting pressure on INEC, the security
agents, resorting to compromising the Judiciary and lately to use the EFCC
to restrain restrain and frustrate him, but by the grace of God, they will
“But  Chief Oke is not deterred. If they like, let them dare the will of
God, the consequences await them. Our people in Ondo state are watching
them keenly and in the fullness of time, they will get their rewards in
full if they don’t desist
“We want to commend Mr. President for his zero tolerance to perfidy and we
urge him to please save our souls in Ondo State from those who say the
masses shall not be allowed to live and do their things in peace.
