A former governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada, on Saturday said he did not endorse Deji Adejayan as his candidate for the National Publicity Secretary of the party in its forthcoming national convention, describing the allegation as “criminal.”
According to him, using someone’s name to gain favor without such a person’s consent was a crime, “not only to that person but even before the eyes of the law.”
Wada in a statement by his Personal Assistant, Ibrahim Abdulkarim Wada, obtained by journalists in Abuja said his predecessor and former governor of the State, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, has said he has never met Deji Adejayan in his life.
He said, “My attention has been drawn to a publication claiming that I, Idris Wada, endorsed Deji Adeyenju for the office of the National Publicity Secretary of our great party, PDP. It is indeed a situation I call unfortunate because that is not coming from me. As the leader of the party in Kogi state, it is my duty to see to it that we build a wall that can stand the test of time, and not molding on a cracked wall.
“I want to first of all state clearly that at no point did I ever endorse any one for such a highly esteemed office, knowing the gravity of what it takes to operate from such an office. I wouldn’t have made such a monumental mistake knowing the kind of impression such will breed up.
