Those Plotting Sen. Adeyemi’s Recall Are Political Thugs – Group

A group, Kogi West Youth Movement for Credibility, (KWYMC), has described those seeking Senator Smart Adeyemi’s recall as political thugs and rabble-rousers, who were being manipulated by some failed politicians.

The group whose members are drawn from seven council areas of Kogi West at a press conference in Lokoja on Wednesday, urged the senator to be unrelenting in saying the truth.

Coordinator of the group, Alhaji Musa Yahaya, contended that, “this amorphous and fake group, called Concerned Kogi West Youth, are nothing, but the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu’s errand boys, doing his bidding, in the hope that it will buy him peace of mind after he was exposed by senator Adeyemi.”

In a press statement signed by the Coordinator, KWYMC, and made available to newsmen, said, ”the attention of Kogi West Youth Movement for Credibility  has been drawn to a ‘Press Statement issued by a group without a valid office address.”

“They are sponsored goons, rabble rousers and Ikpeazu’s foot Soldiers set to distract the senator and make noise.

“What wrong has Adeyemi done to the people of Kogi West that these faceless persons hiding under unregistered association calling for his recall. After all, Ikpeazu is not the governor of Kogi State.

The statement further caution governor Ikpeazu and his agents in Kogi State to stop hiding behind fake groups.

It also alleged that they were group of charlatans always allowing themselves to be used by failed politicians against Senator Adeyemi., apparently for his stance against him xx3ec the anti-people policies of some politicians in the country.

“Indeed, if there is any apology to be tendered, it should be by Governor Ikpeazu who must retract all the false statements he made on Senator Smart Adeyemi.

He said: “It  is on record that governor Ikpeazu made grievous and false verbal attacks discrediting Senator Adeyemi. His utterances were not only false, irresponsible and malicious but most importantly, totally unprovoked. Why then should this paid  group ask Adeyemi to tender apology to a man who had rubbished their own.

“Let us at this point say unequivocally that Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi is a high ranking senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with a formidable track record and antecedents to show for it. Prior to coming to the Senate, he was a renowned journalist who served as the president of the Nigerian Union of Journalists for two terms. The distinguished senator is popularly known for his interest in the protection of the masses and would not  support a governor who is not performing well.

“Therefore, the statement calling Adeyemi to apologize to Ikpeazu by the so-called Concerned Kogi West Youth should immediately be directed at their paymaster, Governor Ikpeazu.
