Governor Abiola Ajimobi Responds To Rumour
Oct 16,2011- Governor Ajimobi : I Didn’t Appoint My Daughter As PA, It’s a Rumour From The Opposition
In response to a News we culled from Gistexpress on Oct 13,2011 (Read the news detail here)
Below is the content of an mail Naijan.com received from Governor Ajimobi’s Special Adviser (Media) today Oct 16,2011
Our attention has been drawn to a posting on some internet websites alleging that a daughter of Governor Abiola Ajimobi, Bisola, has been appointed a Personal Assistant to the governor of Oyo State.
We state with all emphasis at our disposal that this is an extremely fertile imagination at work. The daughter of the governor resides in Lagos and has never been given any appointment whatsoever by the government. This can be cross-checked independently by anyone.
We ask that the media cross-checks its facts very well as this posting is apparently a hatchet job. The coincidence of this story coming on the net at this time, when a former helmsman of the state is currently facing charges of corruption and misappropriation, is too sharp to be neglected. This may well be a replay of the historical Nigerian wise crack, ‘if you Tarka me, I Daboh you.’
Once again, we confirm that this is a very wicked rumour, an attempt to malign innocent persons, hiding under the well-known licence that the internet offers those who want to tar-brush their enemies, for very wicked and ulterior motives.
