Stop Attacking Ajimobi, Council Boss Warns Lanlehin
The caretaker Chairman of Ibadan North West Local Government, Ogbeni Wasiu Olatubosun, has cautioned the lawmaker representing Oyo South Senatorial district in the National Assembly, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin, against what he described as incessant media attacks on the person Governor Abiola Ajimobi to score some political points as a peculiar to a drowned political actor.
Olatubosun said in a statement he personally issued and made available to journalists in Ibadan today that Lanlehin has emerged the best apostle of double speak in the current political dispensation in view of his activities in the politics of Oyo State.
Apparently, he (Olatubosun) was reacting to an interview published by a national newspaper on Tuesday where the lawmaker said Gov. Ajimobi was on his way out of the Agodi government house.
“It is sad to note that while the current administration of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State is busy attending to the yearnings and aspirations of the masses, a confused turncoat, who is being traumatized by his ego as well as insatiable quest for power, is deploying all within his power to sabotage the genuine efforts to move the state forward as championed by Sen. Abiola Ajimobi.
“We recalled that Lanlehin had banked on the goodwill of the likes of the late leader of the progressives in the state, Alhaji Lam Adesina, but narrowly lost out of the governorship contest in 2011 because God had decreed that the man with the best intention and capability should carry the day. It later dawned on us that God could not be mistaken in His judgment as party loyalists, political watchers and the members of the general public got wind of Lanlehin’s true color of grandstanding, deceit and betrayal.
“The same Lanlehin who runs away from the majority of those who voted for him in 2011 would tell a journalist today that he has no personal hatred for Gov. Ajimobi only to launch an attack through the same journalist against the governor tomorrow. As he (Lanlehin) clings to a section of the media to halt the on-going process of rebirth, reformation and consolidation in Oyo State, we are upbeat that he would end up nailing his own political coffin more so, he has eventually pitched his tent with a camp of politicians whose track record of vindictiveness, treachery and hypocrisy is unrivaled.
“While we make bold to challenge Sen. Olufemi Lanlehin to a street walk in any part of Oyo South senatorial district to test his popularity in contest with any serving caretaker chairman of local government council, we send our sincere congratulatory message to all party faithful who refused to follow the lawmaker to Accord Party and thus made him a Lone Ranger in his current adventure.” Olatubosun stated.
