Below is the exchange of mails and responses from the USAID on a fraudulent poll which the Omisore camp claimed to have been conducted by USAID.
We wrote to USAID and below are the responses obtained.
Also below is a story written from it perhaps to ease your efforts on it but you can ask your men to do independent confirmation from the US embassy.
Dear Ms Omotunde:
My attention has been brought to the outlandish findings of an opinion poll purportedly conducted by the USAID.
In my capacity as the Chairman and Director General of the Aregbesola campaign, I am seeking to verify whether or not the USAID conducted a poll on the pending gubernatorial election in the State of Osun.
If such a poll was conducted, it is only fair that its findings be freely disseminated to all rather than what now appears to be a clandestine circulation. Accordingly, I am requesting an authentic copy of the results of whatever poll was conducted by the USAID on the pending election in Osun.
Needless to say, the good name and reputation of the USAID should be jealously guarded from being shredded or damaged by certified crocodiles in the murky waters of Nigeria’s partisan politicking.
Senator Olusola Adeyeye, Ph.D.
Dear Senator Adeyeye and Mr. Okanlawon,
With reference to your enquiries on the above subject matter, please read below the various responses on the issue from the different sections of the U.S. Mission to Nigeria:
This email is UNCLASSIFIED.
From the Acting Public Affairs Officer, U.S. Consulate General, Lagos, Rhonda Watson
NO USAID poll was taken in Osun
From USAID, Democracy and Governance Team, Abuja
None of USAID Peace and Democratic Governance Implementing Partners ( P/DG IPs) support or plan to support any election related opinion polls in Osun.
Joke Omotunde (Mrs.)
U.S. Consulate General, Lagos
Thank you. I knew from the beginning that the USAID could not have taken the poll! Certified liars touted the USAID to give themselves the credibility they never had and never will.
