Basiru Ajibola: Constitutionally Fit And Proper To Represent Osun Central At The Senate - Afolabi Abdulmalik

The Senatorial Ambition of  Dr.Basiru Ajibola, is audible to the deaf, and visible to the blind, without the need of any microscopic scrutiny.

However, The 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria(FRN), as amended, 2011, provides the requirements necessary for an individual to be able to run for the Office of a Senator in Nigeria.

The first and most important is that you must be a citizen of Nigeria in order to be a Senator, and it's crystal clear without the need of a microscopic scrutiny that Dr. Surajudeen Ajibola Basiru, is a genuine Citizen of Nigeria, who hails from Osogbo, the state Capital, of the State of Osun.

In order to be eligible for contesting an election for Senate, you must be at least 35 years of age, and Dr. Basiru was born in the year 1976, he's 46 years Old, therefore, He satisfies the Law, in this aspect.

Furthermore, Any individual who wishes to run for the office of Senator in any constituency in Nigeria must be educated up to at least School Certificate level, that means all Senators must have completed at least secondary school education, Dr. Surajudeen Ajibola, completed his Secondary School education, in Osogbo, grammar School, and he proceeded to have a Degree in Law, in the University of Lagos, where he also bagged a Doctorate degree.

In order to run for office of Senator, the individual must also be a member of a registered political party and sponsored by that political party to contest in the elections. The Nigerian Constitution and does not allow candidates to run as ‘independents’. However, Dr. Basiru has been an active member of the All Progressive Congress (APC), for years.

Dr. Basiru has never been adjudged to be a lunatic or otherwise declared to be of unsound mind, even for once, because anyone who has been declared, as such,  cannot run for the office of Senator in Nigeria.

He has never been sentenced to imprisonment or a fine for an offence involving dishonesty or fraud, nor been convicted and sentenced for an offence involving dishonesty or he has been found guilty of a contravention of the Code of Conduct, this distinguishes him as an individual of an unquestionable and an Unimpeachable Character, and a strictly law abiding.

He has not been, and He isn't an undischarged bankrupt, he has never been adjudged or otherwise declared bankrupt, even for once, under any law in force in any part of Nigeria, and even outside, because anyone that is found wanting in this aspect is not allowed to run for the position of Senator in Nigeria.

Furthermore, he has never been indicted for embezzlement or fraud by Judicial Commission of Inquiry or an Administrative Panel of Inquiry or a Tribunal set up under the Tribunals of Inquiry Act, a Tribunals of Inquiry Law or any other law by the Federal or State Government.

Finally, as an intellectual, who values intellectualism over mediocrity, he is not a  members of any secret societies or have presented forged certificates to the Independence National Electoral Commission(INEC)

At this juncture, it is quite irrefutable to state that Dr. Basiru is Constitutionally, fit, proper and balanced to take Osun Central to the promise Land.
