Ahmed Lawan Makes First ‘Mistake’ As Senate President

The Senate President and Chairman of the 9th National Assembly, Ahmed Lawan, appears to have made his first blunder in office as one of his first appointments has been mired in controversy.
Lawan had recently named Mr Festus Adedayo, a known critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration, as his Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
Adedayo’s appointment has continued to generate a lot of buzz on social media since it was announced alongside the appointment of the Senate President’s Chief of Staff, Babagana Muhammad Aji, on Tuesday.
Following the appointment, supporters of the ruling APC quickly created a hashtag “#SackFestusAdedayo” on Twitter, demanding for the immediate termination of the appointment.
The Senate President also earned some knocks from a chieftain of the APC and the Senator representing Osun Central, Ajibola Bashiru, who described the appointment as “unfortunate”.
Also criticizing Lawan’s engagement of Adedayo as publicity aide was the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) which expressed shock at Adedayo’s appointment “given his antecedents and his undisguised contempt for the APC and President Buhari.”
Meanwhile, the appointee has said he never lobbied the Senate President for the appointment. He also told reporters that he was never consulted before the appointment was announced.
Adedayo was quoted to have said he was still consulting with his folks on whether to reject the appointment or not.
Many see these negative reactions to Lawan’s first appointment as a failure on the part of the Senate President to carry out due diligence.
Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports say that the Senate President has, however, rescinded the appointment today, Thursday, June 20, 2019 following consultations.

Justice Inyang Ekwo made the order following an amendment of the charges which saw Adeleke ’s name dropped as a defendant in the case .
The prosecuting counsel , Simon Lough , had told Justice Ekwo on Thursday that the prosecution decided to drop Adeleke ’s name in the case due to his continued absence from the court which continued to stall the trial .

The court had ordered him to return to the country by June 7, 2019.

Adeleke who contested the September 22 , 2018 governorship election in Osun State and came second , was arraigned along with others on October 31 of the same year .
The prosecution accused them of committing the offence of examination malpractices by fraudulently , through impersonation , registering Adeleke and another Sikiru Adeleke , as students of Ojo -Aro Community Grammar School, in Ojo -Aro in Osun State , for the National Examination Council ’s June / July 2017 Senior School Certificate Examination in February 2017 .
It alleged that Ademola and Sikiru Adeleke were fraudulently registered for the examination and “awarded them seven credits, one pass and five credits respectively , and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 10 ( a ) and punishable under section 3 of the Examination Malpractices Act Cap E 15 LFN 2004. ”
The Adelekes were also accused of impersonating “as students of Ojo -Aro Community Grammar School when you fraudulently registered as internal students of the school in the June / July , 2017 NECO, and having registered , conspired with unknown persons now at large to write the examination for them . ”

The state APC legal adviser, Barrister Adegoke Ogunsola made this known on Thursday, at the State Secretariat of the party, during a press conference organized by the State Executive Council members.
Ogunsola said that “There is unity in Osun APC and there is no faction, noting that some people suspected to be disgruntled members of the main opposition, PDP, are misleading the public with lies, misinformation, and falsehood to believe that Osun APC is factionalized and not united”.
According to him, “Osun APC always operates within the ambit of the party’s constitution, other relevant laws, and directives from the National Headquarters of the party.
“We are hereby informing the public that the news that Osun APC is factionalized into both Gov. Gboyega Oyetola’s camp and Rauf Aregbesola’s camp, is an utter falsehood and misinformation from the pit of hell and those wishing disintegration of Osun APC are members of the main opposition”.
The party said, “It is a shame that the former governor, Ogbeni Aregbesola is sponsoring the Secretary of the party, Alhaji Razaq Salinsile against the State Chairman, Prince Adegboyega Famodun, the duo has a cordial relationship, and we are endowed with resourceful elders such as Chief Bisi Akande, Chief Sola Akinwumi and many others who will intervene and settle any dispute if there is any”.
