Members of the Ondo South Progressives in Diaspora have debunked the alleged malicious plot to tarnish the name of the Ondo State Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa.

The group insisted that the ‘false claims’ were being made regarding the legitimacy of the Deputy Governor’s academic certificates

It described the issue as baseless and unfounded.

A statement signed by the group’s spokesman, Dr Babatunde Fowowe, said: “We have taken immediate action to ascertain the truth behind these allegations. We have reached out to our friends who are officials of the prestigious University of Liverpool, United Kingdom, where Lucky Aiyedatiwa obtained his Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) in 2013.

“They have confirmed unequivocally that the Deputy Governor was indeed a student of the university, successfully completing his degree program.

“Furthermore, we have identified the sponsors of this plot and have duly notified law enforcement agencies and legal experts about their involvement. We also have strong evidences backed with court documents of the adulterous records of one of the sponsors of the plot, however.

“We will cooperate fully with the authorities to ensure that justice is served and those responsible for spreading false information are held accountable.

“It is important to note that this recent attempt to discredit the Deputy Governor Aiyedatiwa comes on the heels of a failed endeavor to weaponize his marriage against him. False claims of domestic violence were propagated, falsely accusing him of mistreating his wife.

“We want to reiterate that these allegations are baseless and have no merit whatsoever. We stand firmly by Deputy Governor Aiyedatiwa, a loyal ally to the Governor, and reject these false attempts to tarnish his reputation.

“We call upon the people of Ondo State to rally behind the principles of justice and the proper rule of law. Let us support our Deputy Governor who has taken a strong stance to break the cultural clashes that have plagued previous deputies and their principals in Ondo State. In addition, we extend our prayers for the swift recovery of the Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.

“Finally, we urge the newly-elected 10th House of Assembly members to protect and uphold the fabric of democracy in Ondo State. It is crucial that we work together to preserve the democratic values that underpin our society

“We remain resolute in our commitment to the truth, justice, and progress for the people of Ondo State. Let us unite against these divisive plots and forge ahead towards a brighter future”.
