A petition was wriiten to the police against the lawmaker byan aspirant, Mr. Yusuf Balogun.

Balogun, House of Representatives aspirant in the recent primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi state, had petitioned the Inspector General of Police (IGP) alleging irregularities, inconsistencies and forgery in the certificate and document of the lawmaker representing the Ajaokuta Federal Constituency.

The aggrieved aspirant contested alongside Idris for the Ajaokuta Federal Constituency.

The petition titled: Petition Against Irregularities, Inconsistencies and Forgery in Hon Lawal Idris Certificate and Documents, was dated October 18, 2018, and was stamped and acknowledged by the IGP’s office on Oct 24, 2018.

It read in part: “Hon Lawal Idris in a sworn affidavit with INEC in form CF 001 in years 2014 claimed to be born in the United Kingdom while in an attached declaration of age to the said form, he was born in Ajaokuta.

“Whereas in his APC membership card and State of Origin Form he is bearing Lawal Idris, in one of his 2014 tax receipt he is bearing Idris Lawal.”

The petition further alleged that: “Hon Lawal Idris forged his WAEC result. The WAEC result he used in the affidavit sworn with INEC in year 2014 where he passed six subjects were forged and was contested in court by the PDP in 2015.

“This said result has given him much problem as media houses had reported it severally since he assumed office. In view of the problem he had faced with the said result, he decided to use another result while submitting his nomination form to APC.

“The exam he actually wrote himself in Government Secondary School, Ilorin, he failed all four subjects in year 1980.”

The House of Representatives aspirant prayed the Police boss that: “In view of the above, I plead for investigation of the said Hon Lawal Idris and his particulars especially as per place of birth and educational qualification.”
