Your wife controls you-Akala to Gov Ajimobi
The run up campaigns to Gubanitorial elections in Oyo state is getting increasingly personal with the verbal jousting amongst the candidates.The incumbent Governor Ajimobi fired off the first salvo when he made some assertions regarding former Governor Akala in an interview conducted by a Festus Adedayo.According to him Governor Akala's ostentatious dressing including the wearing of anklets and other behaviours does not depict a man who means well for the people of Oyo state amomgst other morally telling allegations.The visibly irate Akala who is the Labour Party Gubanitorial candidate and a former Governor himself reacting through his spokesperson Oludare Ogunlana berated Governor Ajimobi for indulging in uncouth behaviour and a penchant for lysing about him.While advising Governor Ajimobi to be carefu lest the interviewer Festus Adedayo unwittingly leads him to prison,he asserted that his tenure as Governor had reached and touched every ward and Local Government in the state unlike Ajimobi who he accused of concentrating on only two Local Governments.Still on his achievements "The biggest hospital by any administration in the state was built by Akala.The peace did not start with Ajimobi's Government,we have not had any disaster like that of Ajimobi,was there any "SOKA" issue during the previous era? he asserted.
He also accused Ajimobi of taking delight in incessantly delaying worker's salary,claiming that even the present Commissioner for finance corroborated this in a recent interview.Perhaps the most damaging of his assertions was the claims that the present Governor Ajimobi was being controlled by his wife "Is it not ridiculous for any Yoruba man to be controlled by a Lebanese woman?His wife's wish is his command. He continued stating "Of course Ajimobi is the Governor but the real Government is Florence Ajimobi,but the aroma of Government is too sweet for him and his wife to know that they are living on borrowed times" he concluded.
He further asserted that the Governor Ajimobi Government was fond of askng graduate jobseekers to pay for non existent jobs.He concluded by likening the Governor and the interviewer Festus Adedayo's assertions as "Mr Giwa is a trader.He is a mercenary that works whereever his bread will be buttered,that was how he did when he was with Nnamani,throwing caution into the winds like an uncouth person.If truly Ajimobi is cerebral like he claims,how come he could not manage his partty's fortunes?where are the likes of Dr Adeolu Akande | Senator Ayo Adeseun and Femi Lanlehin amongst others? If Lam were to be alive today he would be in Labour Party. Taking a swipe at Ajimobi's role in his party APC he asserts "Even in APC where he claims to be a member,he is not even in their first eleven,and that is why he is not given any prominent role in the campaign of General Muhammadu Buhari because they know his worth" Akala concludes in his lenghty retort.
