The political leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State has taken a swipe at Governor Dapo Abiodun over appointing an aide with questionable character.
It described the arrest of Abidemi Rufai, a Senior Special Assistant to Governor Dapo Abiodun who was arrested in the United States of America over fraud as an embarrassment.
Rufai was arrested last week Friday in the United States for employment fraud involving over $350,000.
Sikitullah Ogundele, the Chairman of the PDP in the state said the arrest of Rufai showed that people of questionable character are in the political system.
While exonerating the governor from the embarrassment, he urged that aides with questionable characters should be shown the way out of politics.
His words: “People of questionable character should be kept away from our system.
“It is unfortunate that the governor of Ogun State has chosen somebody of questionable character and it is an embarrassment to the entire state.
“It is not the fault of the person that appointed him but personalities must be well-vetted before giving them appointments.
“It is quite unfortunate that the guy got arrested in America and I know that things are coming up, people of questionable character will soon be brought to open. It is an unfortunate situation.”
