Lagos LG Poll: Hamzat’s Brother Threatens Legal Action Against PDP Chairmanship Candidate

Prince Usman Akanbi Hamzat

The All Progressives Con­gress (APC) chairmanship candidate in Ifako/Ijaiye Local Government Area for the forthcoming local govern­ment election, Prince Usman Akanbi Hamzat, has threat­ened to take legal action against the Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) candidate in Agege Local Government Area, Hon. Sola Osolana.

Hamzat, who is the young­er to brother to the Lagos State deputy governor, ex­plained that he would insti­tute a legal action against Osolana if he did not desist from using the acronym “HEEDS” as his electioneer­ing slogan.

In a letter to Osolana dated July 10 2021, a copy, which was obtained by Daily Indepen­dent, the solicitors to Hamzat claimed that the “HEEDS” agenda was resourcefully innovated by their client (Hamzat) “and to further se­cure the aforesaid idea, our client took further steps to trademark same,” part of the letter stated.

The letter signed by Oluwa­tosin Arigbanla of Vitals Law Firm, read further, “However, it has come to our notice that you have directly and/or in­directly used and/or caused to be used on your behalf the aforementioned idea for your personal gain and/or political acceptability as if same was innovated by you.

“Pursuant to the above herein stated, we hereby give you notice to refrain from us­ing the H.E.E.D.S Agenda nor cause same to be used on your behalf as our client had both in equity and law obtained the first right of usage.

“Please take further notice that if you fail and/or refuse and/or willingly refuse and/ or decide and/or neglect to refrain from the said idea as herein stated, we shall ap­propriately involve relevant authorities and/or take nec­essary legal action(s) against you.”

When contacted for his reaction, Osolana said he was not aware of any letter neither from Hamzat nor his solicitors, just as he clarified that he did not infringe on any copyright.

He however, clarified that what Hamzat was laying claims to might be a clash of ideas, stating further that his ideas were basic pro­grammes for the people of his local government.

The author provides his individual point of view which is good to compare with the top financial advisors I usually follow on compacom.com. They are always giving such a full detailed analysis that I couldn’t even imagine it’s possible to find something new. Thanks for the information.
