FG Travel Ban List: I was wrongly accused in 2016, now I am exonerated- Omisore

Osun State former governor, Senator Iyiola Omisore has said he was wrongly accused in 2016 by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) but he had been exonerated during the course of the investigation.

Omisore also slammed a group, Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association for accusing Federal Government for not including his name as part of those who are ban from traveling out.

According to a statement by the media aide of Omisore, Jide Fakorede, read, "Our attention has been drawn to a poorly written statement being circulated around by a faceless group called, Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association criticizing the exclusion of Senator Iyiola Omisore’s name from a purported travel ban list.
"Ordinarily, we would have ignored this baseless and worthless allegation from this group as this clearly can best be described as the hands of Esau but voice of Jacob but for a few that may be misguided, we owe them a sacred duty of making this clarification.

"This fictitious group is a creation of those who were not happy with the recent political developments in Osun state and who obviously do not mean well for the state but only trying to mutilate the high integrity of Senator Omisore. We have no doubt of the  existence of some failed politicians who have scores to settle with the former Osun state deputy governor but are now feeling frustrated with his continuous rise in the political firmament of the country despite all their ''pull him down'' effort. These set of persons represent retrogression, deliberate falsehood and under-development. Again, they have failed.

"Let’s face the facts squarely. Senator Iyiola Omisore was wrongly alleged in 2016 and he surrendered himself to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for investigation and was given a ‘clean bill of health’ by the anti- graft body after a thorough investigation. It is on record that no case was instituted against him in any court of our land and neither was he arraigned before any court either. He has been enjoying his freedom and has even presented himself for election into public office passing through all security screenings.So we ask, what is the noise about? The basis for placement on the watch list and travel ban is to ensure that those answering EFCC charges are held within the country and for someone not having a current case with the anti-graft agency, there may be no basis to restrict his movement.

He opined that, "Yoruba youths all over the world are known to be intelligent and industrious and will never subject themselves to be used by political jobbers and rejected politicians for a tasteless cheap plate of porridge. We know our youths will never make reckless statements like that.

Senator Omisore is busy with the arduous task of building alliance across different political parties with the aim of developing Osun state and using his contacts from his extensive network garnered over the years in the course of his private practice as a successful chartered engineer and will not allow distractions from fake group like this to discourage him.  He concluded.
