Barely a week after the APC registration exercise began, the Hon. Minister of Information and  Cultute,  Alh. Lai Mohammed majestically found time to join the exercise at home.
The Hon. Minister registered at his polling booth in Oro and thereafter  used the homestead to stage a disinformation campaign against the exercise.
Although the Hon. Minister  claimed in his press statement to hail from Ifelodun, it is common knowledge that his hometown, Oro, falls within Irepodun. 
The stakeholders in Irepodun completely disassociate ourselves and our Local Government from the Minister's wild claims. 

The registration in Irepodun Local Government  has gone on  smoothly with official documents( registration forms and registers) used properly and the guidelines painstakingly followed. 

If the Honourable minister consulted and respect  his associates, including Ambassador Niyi Abioye, and  foot soldiers, who registered without any problem  and even displayed their slips on social media, he would not be putting up  this utterly reckless campaign. 

In Oro Wards 1 and 2, the immediate constituency of the Honourable Minister, the exercise took place smoothly with huge turn out and registration of members. The exercise was so successful that the forms supplied were exhausted in most units by Friday. Despite that, a space was consciously reserved for  the  Honourable Minister  to register. 

If the registers were hoarded , where did the Hon. Minister get  his form and register for the exercise?

Irepodun was duly represented at the APC Stakeholders meeting on the registration  exercise at Government  Banquet Hall, Ilorin , two weeks. Among the attendees were Kwara South Chairman, Hon. Olayemi Olabanji, the Member representing Irepodun Local Givernment in the State House if Assembly, Hon. Tayo Awodiji, and notable leaders including  Prince Shuaib Olanrewaju and Oloriewe. Raheem Adedoyin 

It is disappointing that the Hon. Minister is hiding under a nebulous 4 tendencies  creation to spread disinformation. In Irepodun where the Minister actually hails from, there is no such grouping. None of our elected party and legislative leaders in Irepodun including APC Kwara South Chairman, Hon. Olayemi Olabanji, our representative at the National Assembly, Hon. Raheem Olawuyi Ajulo and our representatives at the Kwara Stare House of Assembly,  Hon. Tayo Awodiji belongs to the so- called Fagbemi Group which  the Minister and his cohorts have been conveniently maligning. 
Indeed, our elected and other frontline  leaders were in the forefront of the   APC parallel congress of 2018 whose participants have now been fraudulently categorised as Lai Group. 

In conclusion, Irepodun Local Government stakeholders disassociate ourselves from the disinformation being spread by the Hon. Minister of Information and Culture, Alh. Lai Mohammed on the  ongoing registration exercise. 

Indeed, the success of  the exercise in Alh. Lai Mohammed's domain is so huge that our people are already clamouring for more registration forms.
