Endorsement: Those That Collected N100m From Buhari On Their Own — KOWA Party
The KOWA Party’s national secretary and Chief Executive Officer, Comrade Mark Adebayo has warned those that allegedly collected one hundred million Naira from President Muhammadu Buhari for second term in the forthcoming 2019 General Elections not to drag the party into the ruse.
Comrade Adebayo stated this while responding to a telephone interview on the matter when he was asked what would become of the party members involved.
He said that if anybody collected one hundred million naira to endorse Buhari he or she did so at his/her own peril, not on behalf of KOWA Party.
Hear him: “If anybody collected one hundred million naira to endorse Buhari he or she did so at his/her own peril, not on behalf of KOWA Party.
“Those who gave the money knows who collected such cursed money from them and know how to recover their corrupted money.
“No such amount or any amount for that matter for such shameful action was credited into KOWA Party’s account.
“The creditors must surely know who their debtor is”.
Asked if he had confirmed from the national chairman if he was involved in the endorsement, Comrade Mark retorted “I don’t have to confirm anything from him.
“He knows he doesn’t have such constitutional authority or power nor mandate to commit the Party in that manner without prior and official consultations and official approval by the National Executive Committee of the Party at least.
“And, I know him well enough to affirm that he won’t violate the Party’s constitutional in such a flagrant way.
“Saidu Bobboi, to the best of my knowledge, won’t do such a thing. We are close and have been political allies for years. I consider it fake news”, he insisted.
When asked if it comes out eventually true that the Party’s national chairman actually committed the Party to the endorsement without consulting with the Party’s leaders and members, Comrade Mark said
“When we get to that bridge we will cross it. I can’t proceed from a point of view of assumptions presently.
“But, if in the unlikely event of it being true, there are internal Party mechanisms for dealing with such serious infractions and we shall apply them fully and uncompromisingly.
“But up till now he hasn’t confirmed such despite several questions being raised by many concerned and agitated Party members, leaders and critical stakeholders”.
“All KOWA Party agents across the country are hereby directed to proceed with earlier directives to work for KOWA Party National Assembly candidates on Saturday February 16 and the CUPP consensus presidential candidate same day.
“We can’t kill our Party this way”, the Party’s National Secretary concluded.
In our previous report, ElombahNews reported that the national headquarters of the Party came out strongly against the endorsement through a statement issued by the Party’s national secretary at the Party’s national headquarters in Abuja today.
The Party’s national chairman’s name, Saidu Bobboi, and his signature were published as among the national chairmen who signed a full-page advertorial in today’s ThisDay newspaper endorsing the president.
