A former Candidate of the Kwara central Senatorial district election in the last 2019 general election, Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo who was also a former National association of Nigerian student (NANS) Chairman in a leaked audio threatened to kill by strangling the State Governor AbdulRazaq Abdulrahman to death over less patronage.
In the leaked audio, he said ” We accused Bukola Saraki of being bad and stealing money, but this current Administration of Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq is even doing the same thing even if not even worse, I remembered the first meeting we had at Abuja with The governor, Lawyer Kunle Suliaman (A party chieftain) and Senator Oloriegbe, they (Lawyer Kunle Suliaman and Oloriegbe) were collectively against me getting the position of the Ilorin west chairman, because they knew I would exposed them for requesting for kickbacks from me, they know I won’t lie but rather exposed them, they are asking me to give them out of the meager allocation to cater for the local government downtrodden”
He further said that the governor is patronising some people and deliberately ignoring him and leaving him to suffer, he Said “Barr Kunle Akogun told me at his book launch that we should prepare for inter and intra party crisis. Baba Rex Olaoye, Femi Yussuf and other leaders have been neglected, if not that the governor want to deliberately make me suffer, the governor has been dolling out contracts worth of 2 billion, 100 million and many to his cronies, atleast if I can’t be considered yet for any appointments yet, atleast I should be considered for a subvention. I can be asked to go to the chief of staff office every month to get 2 million Managing allowance to cater for myself, my security details and my followers”
He also said in the leaked audio of his private resentment for the governor and public patronage, he said ” What will kill Gov Abdulrazaq is my mother’s Death, If my mother dies, there would be serious chaos, I don’t mind going to prison, if my mother dies overnight, I will kill the governor in the morning. I would strangle him to death, before his security details tries to help him he would have been dead”
As at time of filling this report, we reached out to the media aide of the governor to know the position of the governor on the issues, he didn’t respond on the stance of the governor.
Meanwhile, 24 hours after the leaked audio, Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo has denied the audio in a statement personally signed by him, he said:
“My attention was drawn to an audio clip credited to some perceived and staunch enemies of the good people of Kwara State most especially the golden son and registered voice of the masses popularly known as Comrade Esinrogunjo Musbau who has fought tirelessly for the emancipation of Kwara State and enjoined the good atmosphere we’re all enjoying today. To set the record straight, I had received a distress call from many of my dear fans and well-wishers across the states who has shown utmost concern about an unfounding news peddling round the media space by some media hirelings and my so-core enemies who are hillbent on destroying my hard earned name stating emphatically that “I will kill the Governor of the state” but the questions that arouses in my mind were;
2. WHAT FOR?
3. OF WHAT BENEFIT?
I want to state it clearly that the voice was outrightly doctored just to discredit and defame my personality, ambition and most importantly my good relationship with His Excellency, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq. It must be known to the public that myself and His Excellency had maintained a very good relationship since he emerged as the flag bearer of our great party, All Progressive Congress (APC) and I had appreciated his fatherly and leadership role played so far in bringing progress to our dear state during his reign in office and as well enjoyed a strengthened communication network.
Fellow Kwarans most especially my loved ones, I’m perplexed engaging you all on this as the events turn around to paint us in bad color despite our unflinching support both publicly and all medium of communication. It is also disheartening that the government we laboured and suffered for has been overthrowned by some mischief makers who are always over heating the polity in order to score cheap political scores.
Finally, I urge you all to remain calm and resolute as the truth will always prevail and we shall overcome all hurdles despite the odds as We pray to Allah to bring the culprits behind the evil deeds to limelight”
Meanwhile, a political cheiftain in the state who pleaded annonymity said, the former aspirant debunked his earlier statement after he has been briefed of the attendant negative effect the leaked audio will have on his political ambition and personality later.
