Political enemies out to portray me a law breaker – Senator Olamilekan 

The Chairman, Senate Committee on local Content, Senator Solomon Adeola Olamilekan has dissociated himself from 2019 campaign posters about him all over Ogun state,  saying, it was the handiwork of enemies to portray him as a law breaker.

The lawmaker who currently represents Lagos West Senatorial district said, posters announcing his commencement of Ogun State gubernatorial campaign was ill-motivated as the act was against the INEC rules on elections.

“I want to dissociate myself completely from ill conceived and ill- motivated  gimmick of my political opponents to portray me in bad light as the posting of such posters is clearly a breach of the Electoral Law of Nigeria and  against the timetable of  Independent National  Electoral Commission (INEC)  for which such poster pasting is a contravention.”

“As a law abiding citizen and a law maker of over 14 years standing presently serving at the highest legislative body in Nigeria, I am not one to be seen to break any law of Nigeria in pursuit of any political or other goals.”

“By the electoral law of Nigeria it is illegal for any aspirant for elections in 2019 to begin political campaign as portrayed in the planted poster of me springing up in parts of Ogun State.”  the senator stated.

He explained that there were vested interests who want to stop at nothing to have him disqualified from Ogun gubernatorial race in 2019.
