Engineer Olusola Olumoroti, an All Progressive Congress Party Chieftain in Kogi state has in strong terms faulted claims published by us over the alleged unfulfilled pledge to the 2012 Kogi State Federation Cup winner, Kabu FC.
The former Governorship Aspirant in a reaction to suggestions in the media over failure to redeem his pledge admits the incomplete fulfillment but blamed the situation on the team officials who he noted were foot-dragging.
Our news blogsite in an investigative report on Friday reportedly gathered that the Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area Council sponsored football club were yet remainder of funds in tune of five hundred thousand naira.
The 2012 Federation Cup final 3-1 victory against state sponsored Nigeria league second tier Kogi United at the 25,000 for Kabu FC on penalties was the best feat for the over two-decade existing non-league side from Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area in Kogi state.
Engineer Olumoroti described the claims as untrue and politically motivated by his political enemies and detractors to dent his highly regarded image and well-guarded interest for his people.
He noted with disappointment that the poly to discredit his personality despite huge contributions to the community development was unwarranted and unfair.
The highly reverend Kabba born politician says such claims will never deter him from fulfilling his societal responsibility, accepting that only God will judge those conspiringly against his good aspiration for his people.
SavidNews would recall that Engineer Olumoroti who contested in the primaries for the Governorship ticket under the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, CAN now merged into All Progressive Congress Party, APC hosted the Kabba/Bunu local government sponsored team to a thrilling reception.
The top staff of Ex-Mobil Nigeria who was quoted last year in an interview with local tabloid, Democracy Newspaper insisted his decision was in “no political interest” but a sincere love for “youth empowerment and community development”.
Meanwhile, the Coach of Kabu FC Mr Shina Akande has described report published by us against Engineer Olumoroti Olusola over an unfulfilled pledge to team as untrue.
Mr Shina who is the Sports Secretary while distancing himself noted that the claims were far from the truth and without his knowledge.
He noted that the team are patiently in touch with the highly regarded politician over the fulfilment of the pledge.
He however on behalf of the team apologized to the APC Chieftain over what the unwarranted media claims may have cost him, stressing that his kind gesture to the team was commendable and unprecedented.
