Ojodu Chairmanship: Falake’s Candidate, Layeni In Certificate Scandal by themomentng: 7:34pm On May 27
• Group asks APC to disqualify candidate

• Layeni’s result not authentic –WAEC


The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has clarified the authenticity of the December 1979 result being paraded by a chairmanship aspirant in Ojodu Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos state, Alhaja Layeni Olufunmilayo Kafayat, saying that the certificate is not genuine.

Layeni, an aspirant in the forthcoming Local Government elections under the banner of All Progressives Congress (APC), is majorly being sponsored by a member of the House of Representatives representing Ikeja Federal Constituency, Hon James Faleke.

In a response dated May 25, 2021 to an inquiry with respect to the authenticity of Layeni’s result, the examination body said the result did not emanate from it.

In the said result, Layeni claimed to have made C6 in English Language, C5 in Government, C4 in Economics, C4 in Mathematics, D7 in Biology, C5 in Commerce, and C3 in Accounts.

The examination body simply replied: “source document not from WAEC.”

Meanwhile, an interest group in Ojodu known as Ojodu Collectives has urged the leadership of the APC to disqualify Layeni from participating in the primary election to decide the candidate of the party for the general election.

In a statement jointly signed by the Chairman and Publicity Secretary of the group, Mr Shola Akinmaja and Seun Adeboriola respectively, the group said it was unfortunate that someone aspiring to lead the council could be parading a fake result.

“In the light of the revelation by WAEC to the effect that the result being paraded by the said Layeni is fake and not genuine, we urge the APC as a proactive and responsible party to do the needful by disqualifying Layeni forthwith,” the statement reads in part.

The group also called on the police to investigate the development and take necessary action, since falsification of result also amounts to forgery and perjury under the law for which prosecution is applicable.

In a related development, Hon Wale Abdusalam of the Segun Odunmbaku Campaign Organization (SOCO), has condemned attempts by some persons within the APC to deceive unsuspecting party members to the effect that a particular candidate has been endorsed.

Abdusalam admonished the people to be wary of the antics of desperate elements.

“Our attention has been drawn to the actions of some mischievous aspirants within Ojodu LCDA pretending to be staff of APC party secretariat and calling innocent voters lying to them that certain aspirants have been endorsed and that innocent voters should come out and vote for them with monetary inducements on the day of primary election.

“The Segun Odunmbaku Campaign Organization (SOCO) totally condemns this act of canvassing for votes through fraudulent means.

“We appeal to all our teeming supporters to please ignore their calls and remain focused,” Abdusalam said.
