Date: 2017-08-09


A former aide to the Kwara a State Governor, Alhaji Biodun Baraje has denied a media report that some names have emerged from a meeting in Magajin Geri Constituency in which his name was included among those willing to contest the chairmanship of Ilorin West Local government in the forthcoming local government election.

He noted that he is not in a position to speak for the party at whatever level either local government or state, but as a stakeholder in Magajin Geri Constituency, he needs to make such clarification that he was not aware of any meeting where such decisions were taken.

Alhaji Biodun Baraje , a former Special Assistant on Rural Water to the state governor, further added with emphasize that in KWARA state, there is a tradition within the system where processes were thrown out for various positions under the complete machinery of the Senate President , Doctor Bukola Saraki . According to him , this system will be set in motion by the Senate President when the time arises.

He therefore appealed to the general public to see the media report as a fallacy and should be disregarded in its entirety while he also implored the media to cross check their facts before publication.
