The office of the Osun State Deputy Governor, Prince Kola Adewusi has debunked the news making the round that he has connection in the distruption of the protest organised by Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife students against the hike in fees of the institution.
OSUN DEFENDER had on Tuesday reported that Deputy Governor was alleged of sponsoring some thugs to distrupt the students’ protest.
Meanwhile, all efforts by OSUN DEFENDER to get the reaction of the Deputy Governor yesterday through his Chief Press Secretary proved abortive as he did not respond to call put to his phone.
Reacting to the allegation, the Chief Press Secretary to the Deputy Governor, Goke Awoyemi in a statement on Wednesday, a copy made available to OSUN DEFENDER described Prince Adewusi as a man of peace who before, during and after his rise to political stardom has never been associated with thuggery and hooliganism.
Awoyemi noted that the story is put together by fifth columnist with the aim of causing unrest in Osun State and propagated by those who are envious of the cordial relationship that exists between the Deputy Governor and Governor Ademola Adeleke.
The statement reads: “The attention of the office of the Deputy Governor, Osun state, His excellency, Prince Kola Adewusi has been drawn to an online report credited to National Association of Nigerian Students(NANS), published by the online edition, Osun Defender, insinuating that Prince Kola Adewusi attacked protesting students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-ife, who were protesting the hike in their tuition fee, by sending political thugs to attack them on Tuesday evening.
“I wish to state unequivocally that thuggery and hooligalism have never been associated with Prince Kola Adewusi, Osun state Deputy Governor, before, during and after his rise to political stardom, against his political opponents, not to talk of innocent students who were exercising their fundamental human rights as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
” The story is a carefully prepared diet of fiction, put together by fifth colomnists with the aim of causing unrest in Osun state and propagated by those who are envious of the cordial relationship that exists between the Deputy Governor, Prince Kola Adewusi and his peace loving principal Senator Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke, who is by the grace of God the executive governor of Osun state.
“The story should be discountenanced with.”
