ANA condemns Maiwada's visit to Australlian Embassy, warns others - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA) has condemned the recent visit of Ahmed Maiwada who personally imposed himself as President of ANA and using the name of ANA to engage in all sort of unauthorized and illegal activities that has dragged the beautiful name of ANA in the mud.
This was contained in a statement issued by ANA National Publicity Secretary (South), Wole Adedoyin in Ilesa on Friday.

Adedoyin said the recent unofficial visit of Ahmed Maiwada and his co-impostors to the Australian Embassy was disheartening and huge members of ANA were not happy with the way the impostors were dragging ANA in the mud with the aim of swindling the embassies and general public with their begging bowls.

According to him “ANA expresses displeasure with the way and manner, that Ahmed Maiwada, a self-appointed ANA President has been portraying the name and image of ANA in bad light with inelegant utterances on ANA Platforms. Maiwada’s ANA has no instrument of Office, no National Secretariat, no Certificate of registration, no website; he has been illegally arresting many of our members, threatening them with one suit or another. Very soon he might be threatening some of us with death soon. Is that one a good leader? He has also been going around, parading some fake trustees as the owners of his own ANA.

"Maiwada is not known by the registered Trustees of ANA. The registered Trustees of ANA wholeheartedly dissociated and disowned Ahmed Maiwada in a suit which he himself took to court, through a court ruling. These are people with bad reputations. These are professional beggars who disguised as ANA EXCOS to dupe and swindle the general public. They are pathological liars.

Adedoyin further stated that the recent outings of Ahmed Maiwada and his co-impostors were below standard because they didn’t have the support of ANA Board of Trustees, ANA Elders and the Advisory Council.

On the allegation of being dismissed from Osun ANA, Adedoyin said he is still a card carrying and financial member of ANA in Osun State.

“I am still a card carrying and financial member of ANA in Osun State. Prince Sijuwola Bunyamin is my State Chairman. Nobody expelled me and there was no official record to this effect. And on extortion of money from Politicians. I have never in my life extorted any money from any politician. There are no evidences for this. They only fabricated this with the intention of tarnishing my image. Since the inception of my political career, I’ve not gotten any criminal record. These can be verified in the offices of Commissioners of Police in Oyo and Osun states where I once served as the State Secretary of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP), Pioneer State Secretary of the Interparty Advisory Council (IPAC), State Secretary of the Coalition for a New Nigeria (CNN), State Secretary of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Chairman of the African Peoples Alliance (APA), Deputy Governorship Candidate of the African Peoples Alliance (APA) in 2015, Chairman of the Hope Democratic Party (PDP) and Governorship Candidate of the Hope Democratic Party (HDP) in 2018. My good records are there with the DSS, Police and INEC. They can be verified. I am not like a member of Maiwada’s EXCO who was openly paraded with Dane gun, machetes and charms. This fact can be verified online.”

Adedoyin once again urged members of the public, embassies, governments, corporate organizations to abstain and stop dealing with them.
