Alleged Money Diversion: CKAYS, ISFAA coordinators condemn suspension, says it is false

 

The Coalition of Kwara APC Young Stakeholders, CKAYS, and the coordinator of a political movement, titled, I Sign For AbdulRahman Again, ISFAA, have condemned the allegations leveled against the two bodies by some group of individuals with the CKAYS purported on money diversion.

In the allegations by some individuals in the CKAYS, which indicated Alhaji Abdulrasheed Awobimpe(Maya), the PRO, Biola Nasirudeen, and the Zonal Coordinator, Kwara South, Prince Goke Afolayan squander some money that was meant for the association.

But, reacting to the allegations, the concerned members of the CKAYS described the alleged infractions leveled against them as ‘false claims, noting that it was meant to drag the name of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and APC into the mud.

Speaking at a press conference, The State Coordinator of CKAYS, Alhaji AbdulRasheed Awobimpe (Maya) noted those who made the false are the amalgamation of ‘Aanigba within the APC, who were left behind by their leaders to destabilize the party.

The statement reads “On Sunday, 24th April 2022, my attention was drawn to an online content, circulated by some individuals, claiming to allege me and other leaders of CKAYS of some wrongdoings and purportedly suspending us from our initiative, which we conceived, built, nurtured and sustained, with our God-given intellect, money, skills, talent, and capacity.

“In the alleged infractions leveled against us by that hell-bent on sharing money, they claimed we received some funding from certain individuals on their behalf, which they claimed they investigated. But if they investigated truly and are not acting a script presented to them by external influence determined to reap, where they didn’t sow, they would have known that nobody gave us any funds to be handed over to anyone, instead, we contributed our own money to begin the actualization of our initiative and others who bought into the initiative simply contributed for some materials to be produced, which has not only been produced but whose production, far exceeded the amount received from external support. There are still debts owed from the production, which had to be cleared subsequently as we progress in our determination to executing our beautiful idea of #isfaa2023.

“It is said that some gullible young people will volunteer themselves as tools in the hand of those who don’t wish our dear state and party well, who are attempting to destroy the good name of our party and work of our excellent governor, by making outrightly false claims, dragging the name of the governor in the process, just to blackmail individuals deemed too independent and committed to the ideals of state-building.

“Apart from the fact that the allegations made by these individuals are laughable and outrightly false, the individuals who made the allegations are themselves none existent in CKAYS. They have never made any financial contribution to the group despite all its numerous activities, neither do they even have any form of identification that associated them with the group.

“Some of them have never participated in CKAYS meetings, some quietly exited the group over 6 months ago and joined their aanigba leaders in other parties and some have never contributed a kobo to our struggle, since the establishment of the group over almost 3 years ago, but have continued to demand and pressure us for personal gratification, hoping that they can obtain political favours through other people’s efforts.

“For clarity, those who made these false allegations are the amalgamation of the remnant of Aanigba within the APC, left behind by their leaders to destabilize APC, deceitfully using some gullible members to achieve sinister motives, by attacking the integrity of those of us who they believe will become an obstacle to their attempt to destabilize the party. But they will not succeed in their agenda.

“The amalgamation of Aanigba’s is leveraging on the gullibility of some APC stakeholders, who believe that CKAYS has to be hijacked from those of us who founded the group and conceive beautiful ideas to advance the course of our progressive government in the build-up to 2023. Their disgust for our progress, despite their lack of support, is making them fall victim to a large plan by the Aanigba, but all of these are dead on arrival.

“Let it be clear to all that we didn’t commit any infraction and no tenant can suspend our landlord in his own house. We assure all members of CKAYS that those behind this scheme will be exposed and they will never be allowed to succeed in their plot against our great party or to hijack our group for their selfish interest.

“It is important to inform you all that all the materials to execute the #isfaa2023 project have been produced and the project execution shall commence immediately after the holy month of Ramadan.

“We cannot be distracted by the antics of those who want to share money meant for project execution. That habit belongs in the past. That is what was rightly referred to as the jahiliyyah era (the era of ignorance). We are now in the era of illumination under the able leadership of our performing and progressive governor, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq. In this era of light, those expecting to share money meant for activities are simply jokers who shouldn’t be taken seriously.

“As contained in the statement issued this past week, all relevant committees for the isfaa2023 execution, both at the state, local government, and ward level shall be set up immediately after the holy month of Ramadan.”

While clarifying, the State coordinator for the ISFAA movement, Prince Goke Afolayan explained that Barrister Abiola Abdulkareem and Alhaji Ahmad Shaaba (Ajiyan Shonga) donated a sum of N1.9m and N200,000 respectively and it was able to canvass more supports for Governor AbdulRahman ahead of the 2023 elections.

 

He said the money collected was purposeful to get some materials down, which will be distributed to the ward ambassador of the ISFAA.

“From the money collected from Barr. Abiola and Ajiyan Shonga were used to print 400 pieces of T-Shirt and Face Caps, 200 pieces of Registration book, Billboard,” he said.
