In response to recent News on a few blogs including this blog (alashock.com) published on Oct 13,2011 and titled “Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi Appoints Socialite Daughter As A Personal Assistant?”
The Governor’s Reaction is as stated Below:
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.
