Alao-Akala Insists Oyo PDP Guber Candidtate, Teslim Folarin is Dubious
Says he stands by his assertion that everything about the PDP guber candidate is fake.
Former governor Adebayo Alao-Akala has insisted that everything about former senate leader, Teslim Folarin is fake.
Following Folarin’s claim that Alao-Akala sponsored violence during his reign as governor of Oyo State, the gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party had revealed that all what the gubernatorial candidate of his former party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, acquired were through dubious means.
Reacting against what he termed as “damage control” after monitoring a programme broadcasted by a popular Ibadan based radio station where Folarin debunked all the allegations levelled against him by the former governor, Akala, through his director of public affairs, Oludare Ogunlana, said that he stood by his “earlier assertion that everything about Senator Teslim Folarin is doubtful, including his academic credentials”.
Urging the University of Ibadan, which Senator Folarin claimed to have attended, “to commence the process of withdrawing his certificate if truly he got any from the respected Ivory Tower”, Ogunlana said that “It is public knowledge that in University of Ibadan, certificate are awarded base on learning and character”, alleging that “the dubious character of Sen. Folarin suggests it either he forged or received his certificate by proxy”.
Obviously referring to the pictures posted on the social media showing Senator Folarin being honoured at Sultan Bello Hall of the premier university a day after Otunba Alao-Akala alleged that his certificate was fake, Ogunlana noted that Senator Teslim “is a disgrace to his Alma mata if truly he graduated from U.I. Sen. Folarin need not to rush to Sultan Bello hall to entice students with money to prove he attended University of Ibadan. We challenge Mr. Folarin to tell us when last he visited that same hall of residence.
“Senator Folarin who has no record of service even as ordinary student should tell the public what he did for the University of Ibadan community during his eight years of wasteful tenure in the Senate.
“While other senators use their position to influence Federal project to their Alma mata; it is a shame that our own former Senate Leader has nothing to show apart from numerous controversies, frauds and violence are things the people of Oyo State could remember him for”.
Ogunlana therefore advised the people of the State “not to fall for Senator Folarin’s scam, insisting that everything about the Ibadan High Chief is fake “and he is a man with no integrity”.
