Alleged Certificate Forgery: Gov. Aiyedatiwa issues 7-Day Ultimatum to Lawyer

The Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa on Monday issued a seven-day ultimatum to Oladotun Hassan, a legal practitioner, demanding the retraction of his accusation of certificate forgery. Otherwise, legal action will be pursued.

In a letter made available to BarristerNG and titled: “Defamatory Publications Against Mr Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa” the Governor is also demanding an apology in three national dailies.

The letter signed by his counsel, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, SAN, reads in part “We are solicitors to His Excellency, the Governor of Ondo State, Mr. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa (“our Client”) on whose behalf we write this letter…”

“It has come to the attention of our client that by an unsolicited letter dated June 2, 2023, you caused to be authored and submitted to the Nigeria Police Force, an unsubstantiated complaint of misrepresentation, certificate forgery, examination malpractice and perjury, against our client.

“Whereas, you are not a registered voter in or an indigene of Ondo State to possess the requisite locus to ground your said complaint.

“Your petition was cleverly routed through unauthorized sources within the police force and without recourse to our client, a report was purportedly submitted to you by the police dated February 19, 2024.

“You thereafter caused the said report to be widely circulated as the basis of a malicious design to disqualify our client from participating in the governorship primary election in Ondo State.

“You thereafter caused another letter to be written to the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) with the same purpose of disqualifying our client from participating in the governorship primary election of the said party fixed for April 2024.

“You have since led a vicious campaign of calumny against our client through these and other false publications, all of which have brought our client into public ridicule and opprobrium, albeit without any justification whatsoever,” he said.
