The lawmaker representing Oluyole Federal
Constituency in the House of Representatives,
Abuja, Samson Olusunbo Olugbemi has
described the rumour of his removal from the
Green Chamber by the Supreme Court as
wicked, malicious and a figment of the imagination of some unscrupulous politicians.
Reacting to the recent pronouncement of the
Supreme Court on his 2015 electoral victory
which generated some ripples within his
constituency, the federal lawmaker, described
the misinterpretation of the court statement as a futile attempt by some disgruntled elements
to mislead unsuspecting members of the public.
“For the avoidance of doubt, what the Apex
Court did last week was to clear the air on a
pre-hearing matter which had to do with the
jurisdiction of the High Court over the case instituted by the loser of the APC party primary
held in build up to the March 28, 2015 election.
The substantive suit is still in the pre-hearing
stage at lower court.
“However, the facts remained that I emerged
victorious at the keenly contested party primary prior to the general election and the
facts supporting this are available for the world
to see. In as much as I would not want to join
the complainant in seeking self help through
the media on a matter which is already before
the court of law, it is imperative to set the record straight and correct the misinformation
and malicious spread of unfounded rumor on
“Members of the general public should be
informed that I, Hon. Olusunbo Olugbemi,
remain the holder of the sacred mandate of the good people of Oluyole Federal
Constituency and I remain resolute in my
determination to represent my constituent well
at the Green Chamber regardless of the all
odds.” Olugbemi stated.
