Jul 1, 2024


A recent video of Senator Lere Oyewunmi, representing Osun West Senatorial District, has been circulating online, sparking controversy. However, his media consultant, Adeolu Ajayi, has released a statement clarifying the context of the senator’s remarks.

According to Ajayi, Senator Oyewunmi was addressing his supporters in Ikire, Osun State, and discussing the challenges he faced in a particular voting area during the 2023 election. The senator’s comments were misinterpreted by some individuals and media outlets, who claimed he admitted to vote-buying.

Ajayi emphasized that Senator Oyewunmi was actually referring to “funds for mobilization,” not vote-buying. The senator’s remarks were mistranslated and taken out of context, Ajayi explained.

The statement urged politicians and media outlets to refrain from spreading misinformation and to respect Senator Oyewunmi’s reputation as a respected and law-abiding politician. The senator has consistently demonstrated his commitment to democratic principles and would never engage in any activity that contravenes the rule of law.

The clarification has put to rest the controversy surrounding the video, and Senator Oyewunmi’s supporters have expressed relief that the truth has been revealed. The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of accurate reporting and the need to verify information before spreading it.
