A socio-political group under the auspices of Kogi West Agenda Forum has berated the Ijumu APC Progressive Minds for calling for expulsion of Senator Smart Adeyemi representing Kogi West senatorial district from the All Progressive Congress.
The group at a press conference held in Lokoja on Saturday, said the press conference was organised to set records straight for the purpose of debunking the insinuation peddled by the Ijumu APC Progressive Minds describing the claims as misinformation capable of heating up the political atmosphere in Kogi state.
Spokesman of the Kogi West Agenda Forum, Dr Bawa Dangana while reacting to a Press Conference held on Wednesday, 19th April, 2023 by Ijumu APC Progressive Minds, described the convener Mr. Kamal Toyin as unregistered member of the APC who can not speak or represent the party at any level.
“Kogi West Agenda Forum wishes to set records straight and debunk the insinuation peddled by the so called “ljumu APC Progressive Minds, lamented the misinformation, misleading presentation and heating up of the polity.”
”For the avoidance of doubt, Mr. Kamal Toyin is not a registered member of our great Party, APC, as we believe he is from the opposition Party, a serial betrayer and unreliable personality to be distanced and avoided”.
”For the records and posterity, Distinguished Sen. Smart Adeyemi, CON has been a loyal servant, reliable representative of the good people of Kogi West Senatorial District and at no time has he disobeyed constituted authorities at any levels of government”.
”He has contributed immensely and is still contributing to the well-being of Kogites generally and good governance,” he added.
The Group described Sen. Adeyemi as a personality and representative who traversed the length and breadth of north central geopolitical zone of Nigeria during the APC National Presidential campaigns to woo voters and party faithfuls using his personal hard earned resources to ensure success and victory to APC, other flag bearers and Nigeria’s President-Elect, Senator Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He wondered how someone can claimed that the same Senator Smart Adeyemi who has done a lot for the party can now be associated with antiparty, describing the allegation as unthinkable and absurd.
