Olajide Osoba, Abeokuta
The Olu -Owode Egba, Oba Kolawole Aremu Sowemimo said he regretted his actions for playing politics under the immediate past administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
The monarch who disclosed this to newsmen yesterday in Abeokuta, the state capital added that the Olu of Itori, Oba Fatai Akamo who recently condemned the administration of the past administration was a major beneficiary of Amosun’s government.
He urged the Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun to run away from Olu of Itori, saying that he is fond of switching allegiance to any new government.
”It is wrong for Royal fathers to be partisan in politics, because we should be fathers to anyone who becomes governor. Though, I regretted my action during Amosun’s administration, but playing politics is over.
”We should be playing in an advisory role now, not to be siding any politician, Akamo is a player, Governor Abiodun should avoid such character.
Oba Sowemimo maintained that Akamo should not be in the position to condemn the administration of the immediate past governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, adding that he is a major beneficiary of Amosun’s kindness.
” I want to urge the incumbent governor, prince Dapo Abiodun to be careful of Oba Fatai Alamo’s antics. He is a player. He is fond of switching allegiance to nay new government, but immediately new government comes in place, he will condemn the outgone government”
He also said that the Olu of Itori lacked moral grandstanding to condemn Amosun.
The monarch furthered added that the rift between Senator Amosun and foremost business mogul, Alhaji Aliko Dangote was as a result of pranks and hanky-panky played by Olu-Itori in the estrangement of the proposed Dangote cement factory expansion in Oluke under Ewekoro local government area of the state.
”He lied to Aliko Dangote that, he had gotten approval from the state government for the expansion of the cement factory, a development the businessman considered to be genuine before embarking on the expansion.
He stressed that, Dangote’s action infuriated Senator Amosun, and ordered for the demolition of the construction on the site.
“I’m surprised that, Oba Akamo can be saying all sorts of bad things about Senator Ibikunle Amosun because he was one of major beneficiary of the former governor.
“I just want to warn the incumbent governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun to beware of Oba Fatai Akamo’s antics. He is a player. He is fond of switching allegiance to any new government, but immediately new government come in place, he will condemn the outgone government.
“He started this with Otunba Gbenga Daniel, but when Amosun got to power, he mocked Daniel’s administration as a failed one. When Amosun was in power, he romance him and even established Ogun Central Progressive Obas Forum to support Amosun. Even, on the eve of Amosun’s administration, he got a jeep as take away gift from the former governor, but now he is singing different song because he want to benefit from Dapo Abiodun’s government
