Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, in the 2019 election, Sen. Olufemi Lanlehin, has said he would not react to the allegations leveled against him by a former deputy governor, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, over the handling of the coalition agreements with Governor Seyi Makinde.
Amb Arapaja, while featuring on Bosenlo, a Lagelu FM weekly programme anchored by Ajibola Akinyefa, accused Lanlehin of personalizing ADC, among other things.
Prior to the 2019 guber election in Oyo state, the ADC and other political parties entered into a coalition with the PDP and Gov Makinde against the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Oloye Bayo Adelabu.
The attention of Senator Olufemi Lanlehin (Solan), has been drawn to comments made by a former Oyo State Deputy Governor, Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, on Lagelu 96.7fm’s popular sociopolitical programme, Bosenlo, wherein he levelled several mind-boggling, spurious and unfounded allegations, especially as regards the coalition arrangement which birthed the current government of Oyo State.
While those comments are nothing but a contraption of barefaced lies, accumulated untruths and phony details, Senator Lanlehin is highly disappointed that Ambassador Arapaja, whom hitherto he held in high esteem and who had once held high political positions in the country, could descend to such very low, dirty and muddy level, all in a hurried and childish bid to satisfy his new paymaster. How low can someone go for the lure of filthy lucre?
All the same, instead of offering reactions to these laughable, comical and pedestrian comments, and then turning the matter to a needless back and forth, which the accuser and his gang would be delighted with, Senator Lanlehin wishes to leave Ambassador Arapaja and his ilks, to the judgement of their conscience, if they still have one.
