Ogun State, Gubernatorial Candidate Could Not Speak English At Elections Debate

A mild drama occurred on Tuesday at the political debate organized by the Committee for Defence of Human Rights, CDHR, Ogun State Chapter, for governorship candidates, as one of the contenders found it difficult to boldly face the public and attend to questions.

The debate which took place at DLK Event Center in Abeokuta, exposed the shy side of the governorship candidate of Mega Progressive Peoples Party, Iyabo Ogunmefun, who found it difficult to face the audience.

Ms. Ogunmefun became apparently jittery when given a question and handed a microphone, resulting into uncontrollable laughter from the public, with many of them describing her as a clown.

When the organizers noticed she was not fluent in her English presentation, the MPPP candidate was given the opportunity to address the audience in her mother tongue, Yoruba.

Ironically, she faced the same challenge of not being able to face the crowd.

Meanwhile, the governorship candidates who appeared for the debate include: Gboyega Isiaka (PDP), Abolaji Sunmola (LP), Benjamin Onafadeji (NCP), Eyiowuawi Razaq (PPN), Olufowobi Adebayo (KOWA), Olawoyin Solomon (CPP) and Iyabode Ogunmefun (MPPP).
