- The APC made a serious error with the designation of some members of its national campaign council for the Osun governorship election
- The ruling party referred to Governors AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara, Yahaya Bello of Kogi, and the minister of sports and youths development as doctorate degree holders
- The affix Dr. is wrong for the ruling party's chieftains because none of them has such a degree in any way
In the list of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC)'s national campaign council for the forthcoming Osun governorship election, the ruling party affixed wrong titles to two governors and a minister.
The chieftains whose names were preceded by titles they never had are Governors AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara, Yahaya Bello of Kogi, and the minister of sports and youth development, Sunday Dare.
In the said list signed by APC's national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, and its national secretary, Iyiola Omisore, the ruling party wrongly referred to AbdulRazaq, Bello, and Dare as doctorate degree holders, even though they have no such titles and are not known to be medical doctors.
Checks by Premium Times have it that Bello obtained both his accounting degree and Masters in Business Administration at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Kaduna, while Dare bagged his Bachelor of Science (BSc.) honours in International Studies in 1991 and a Masters of Arts (MA) in Law and Diplomacy.
