The All Progressives Congress in the State of Osun has alleged the candidate of the Social Democratic Party SDP in the September 22 governorship election in the state, Senator Iyiola Omisore of bringing out what it described as “employment scam” to deceive Osun youths into voting the party during the election.
Barrister Kunle Oyatomi, the Osun APC Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, described the gesture of Omisore to provide jobs for 1, 000 Unemployed Youths as a scam to further deceive the people.
Oyatomi in a statement wondered how the SDP governorship candidate who does not have an employment agency suddenly announced a recruitment exercise for Youths in the state when the election is around the corner.
“If you don’t know it, there is an employment scam in town, and the one and only Iyiola Omisore is at it again”.
According to the party, “just as Omisore did in 2014, he is again circulating a bogus employment form and asking the unemployed to fill.
“This whole damned thing is a scam and the people of Osun should discountenance it”, the APC warned.
“It is another governorship election cycle and as usual Omisore is again engaged in a mean deception of pliable people”, the APC alleged.
“If Omisore has any job to give anyone, why should he wait until this period, when election is less than 40 days away?” the party asked.
“The people of Osun already know that Omisore is not, and does not have an employment agency;
“So for him to be giving jobless people the impression that he cares about their joblessness is fake. The purpose is to deceive and mislead impressionable people that job is available for them.
“Isn’t that another form of political fraud?” the APC queried.
“It is pure and simple – a scam, what our people will call ‘babanla 419!’, the party declared.
The APC expressed surprise that, Omisore didn’t seem to have learnt anything from his comprehensive failure in 2014. If this lie did not work then, how can it work now?
“Or is Omisore still under the illusion that after he lost out in the PDP he can still muster the same following that the party offered him in 2014?, the APC asked, adding that;
“Only inordinate ambition will prod a diminished politician to fantasise about his personal worth in a competitive election like the one scheduled in Osun for September 22, 2018”.
The APC therefore advised that, “all those who may have heard or come into contact with the Omisore employment form should disregard it because it is FAKE”, the APC said.
