The outcome of 2019 general elections and 2015 is not quite different from 2015 involving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Hon. Sherifat Hassan’s and PDP members over alleged election funds mismanagement.
In 2015 190m was purportedly given to SOH without making good use of it. The claims persisted for so long without the honourable addressing the subject matter until it slide.
Another reliable source hinted Kosofe Post in 2015 that SOH didn’t take Kobo in the election funds given to her. Because it was her election she reportedly handover all the actual 85m told given to her to execute the election to some unnamed leaders. Unlike her contemporaries that flee with all the money given to them in 2015. The party stakeholders was given the money and reported padded the money before onward distribution of the remaining funds to the wards level.
As a candidate and desperate to win the election there were claims she took no dime. However, her critics insisted both herself and the husband collected several millions in tune of 190m diverted it for personal use and leads to protests to their abode by aggrieved members coupled with vandalization of their school at Ojota.
As result of this, The former PDP candidate for Kosofe 1, House of Assembly , Moyo Ogunlewe led supporters forced the Hassan’s out of Ogudu Ojota politics. In the heat of it Welly let go the structure of the in his ward to Moyo. Until the party sharing formula ( 65%, 20% and 15% ) where both Jaykay, Alhaji Rahman Owoniran and Hassan are members of G15. The former Lagos State Commissioner for Housing, Hon.Rahman Owonikoran, Whom G15 deputy state Chairman was concede to reported pushed Welly’s despite his multiple challenges as Lagos State PDP deputy state Chairman to spite his former estranged friend Hon. Ola Apena ( Now APC) who was then the leader of G65 and Chief Bode George’s anchor Man in Kosofe. Owokoniran’s push actually saved him from political oblivion.
Despite his position as a state deputy and Apena’s group still has 65% of the party structure in his grip .Yet, still shakes the table vigorously and made the party ungovernable to Hassan’s led LGA chairman Koya .
A Google search will reveal the differences between two deputy state chairman of the PDP in Lagos State.
Hassan’s who is better suitable for Ex- Officio got more power as result of Hon. Moshood Salvador resignation from the party as a state chairman. Hassan led 15% group was appointed as the acting state chairman of PDP. Within this short period of time ahead of the PDP governorship primary between Agbaje and Doherty, he reportedly tilt the party delegates list submitted to Abuja early in favour of Agbaje , who later emerged as the governorship candidate before Chief George’s camp 65% , whom chairmanship was zoned to hurriedly brought in Dr. Agboola Dominic as the state chairman after the deal has been done. Without the fast moves made by minority led Welly, Adedeji Doherty’s would have trounced Jaykay.
This how Welly, the rejected stone from ogudu ojota take it back in Kosofe and his wife also emerged for the second term as Kosofe Federal Constituency as House of Reps Candidate after they have lost hope and his principal Jaykay got ticket for the second term.
Recall Kosofe reported that Kosofe Constituency l: One Might Mistook Moyo Ogunlewe’s As Households Of Reps, Senatorial Candidates Of PDP Until she was defeated for the second by the incumbent lawmaker Hon. Rotimi Agunsoye.
Following her defeation there has been several allegations over mismanagement of election funds mismanagement. his critics according to petitions sighted by Kosofe Post sometimes claimed 200m was given to her , while 10m was reported given to each House of Reps Candidates in Lagos state separately for their personal use.
As usual like 2015 despite the heaps of allegations continued to trail the 2019 election funds given to SOH , She never issue any statement to debunk the allegations and put the record straight by separating the truth from lies. However, Kept his concerned party members wailing.
Our other sources disclosed that immediately after the 2019 election like 2015, the Hassan’s bought 2 multi million cars. Though the multi million jeep acquired in 2015 election was claimed to be a gift from a undisclosed northerner friend. However, this actions of acquiring properties after the party loses election gathered angered several party members.
Aggrieved PDP members and his loyalists, who gathered shortchanged are currently murmuring and kicking against the continuation of his leadership in Kosofe. Hassan’s. Sadly, with heaps of petitions hovering round his neck, and protests against him might not stop his leadership except through credible, free, fair and transparency congresses and general consensus amongst the party members. according to Albert Einstein “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” anything otherwise, will amount to academic exercise or circus show.
