A social political group known as the Southern Frontiers has kicked against the alleged spurious and unjustified claim by the founder of Stanbic IBTC, Atedo Peterside, who the group claimed made attempts during a recent television interview to disparage the former president Goodluck Jonathan.
In its own reaction, in a public statement by the General Secretary of the Group, Kolawole Bamitale and made available to the journalists in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Monday after its emergency meeting on weekend, the group expressed its displeasure over what it called error of commotion by Peterside and frankly warn all political campaigners to be wary of their utterances, verified and sanctioned to be falsifiable before bringing it to the public glare.
The statement read in parts, “politics is the most flagrant of all passion. We can’t just sit down and watch helplessly anybody or group of people cast aspersions on former President Jonathan under the veil of fatuous political analysis. It will amount to a logical fallacy to be scoring an aspirant low or trying to besmirch his or her image before the unsuspecting public.
