Dear Senator Babafemi Ojudu
We read your distorted account of our joint action to return the bags of rice to your home in Iworoko, Ado Ekiti, with shock, disbelief and dismay!
You said you bought 250 bags of 50kg rice, some semovita, wheat and spaghetti and added 500 tubers of yam from your farm in Uke, Nasarawa State and took to Ekiti State. *That is not the fact sir!*
You gave a bag of 25kg rice to both Chairman and Secretary from each ward to share. There are 13 wards in Ado Ekiti so we don’t know where you “distributed” them but definitely not in Ado Ekiti.
You said it was shared to people across the state. Knowing your antecedents sir, it is difficult to believe that a Senator Ojudu would share food across Ekiti State during the lockdown and the whole media in Nigeria will not blow it. In fact, we recall that when you invited only the Chairmen and Secretaries to the meeting, the other exco members raised eyebrows as to why you would exclude them if truly you are a caring leader but you said Ado Ward Chairmen and Secretaries are the ones you can take care of and you have no business with other exco members because they were “Fayemi people”.
We now see why you restricted your pallitives to Ado Ward Chairmen and Secretaries only; so you can have a joyride in your propaganda against the government of Dr Fayemi, using us as pawns!
You said “this morning at 10.30 am *thugs* led by the Ekiti State Vice Chairman of the Party, Mr Sola Elesin, arrived at my house, assaulted my guard, broke the lock to the premises and dumped 13 bags of 25 KG rice.”
So we, the 13 APC Ward Chairmen and Secretaries in Ado Ekiti (including the Ward where you are registered) that you you gave rice to are now “*thugs*? We were the ones who returned your deceitful rice and we sent you pictures taken at your house as we were offloading them. We are sure you know our faces from the pictures we sent to you which you also shared on your social media page.
Suddenly, we have become *thugs*? _Senator sir, e beru Olorun oo!_
Your guard who you claimed was assaulted can be seen in our video receiving the items. It is sad that you would allow your hunger for power by all means to scuttle the peace we enjoy in Ekiti APC.
Oga Ojudu, you were never here to campaign for the party in the 2018 election. You never came to vote for the party. You never voted for President Buhari. You have never attended your ward meeting ever since you finished your tenure as Senator. You don’t even know where the ward meeting holds! You have never bothered to check on your ward members since you got appointed as Special Adviser to Mr President on Political Affairs. You even publicly told the world that you warned your constituents to stop bothering you for support now you are no longer in elective office. We wondered when you sent this Greek gift then… we should have guessed you had an ulterior motive.
It is disappointing that a leader of your caliber can change facts so easily without considering that 26 other witnesses are alive to narrate their own side of the story.
We may not be as popular as you sir but before God, we have a conscience to state the facts as it is. This has nothing to do with Governor Fayemi sir. If we knew you planned to challenge our elections as officers of the Ward in court, we wouldn’t have accepted your Greek gift. Our innocent gesture toward you as a known leader in our party is now being used to ridicule us? God will judge between us and you sir.
No matter what you tell the world to gain false public support, we know the facts of what happened and soon, the world will know the truth too.
The 13 Ward Chairmen & Secretaries
