Adelabu is forever grateful to all leaders that once believed in him and those still with him in his political adventure.
They are at it again!
The children of perdition clothed in toga of tainted “progressivism”. The believers of ruthless Jagba political ideology. Those without any respect for sane politics but hide under an umbrella of party loyalty to promote outdated candidates.
The purveyors of fake news and twisted facts.
Adelabu is giving them serious headache and pain as he appears to be their major obstacle to becoming occupiers of Oyo State Government House come 2023.
The recent media wave orchestrated by the believers of this dark political philosophy to twist a brilliant and intelligent media Interview by Chief Adebayo Adelabu Penkelemesi is similar to their earlier cry after the defection of Adelabu from APC to ACCORD.
They had moved from writing letters through backdoor to inciting a formidable political structure of the late Ajimobi against Adelabu over misrepresented facts and figures.
Adelabu is forever grateful to late Abiola Ajimobi and other progressive leaders who rallied round him in the build up to 2019 general elections and he still hold them in high esteem as they have been around him presently ahead of 2023 elections.
Despite myriads of developmental issues raised by Adelabu, these fellows could not make a strong case for any but rather gaslighting and making hill out of mountain to overheat the polity of the progressive family in Oyo state.
Adelabu talked about power devolution and economic restructuring which is the principle of federalism. He asserted that state should be allowed to take charge of their resources and remit a percent of the proceed to the federal for national projects in the interest of passion for development that cut across Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He talked on the possibility of rail revolution to connect a region that dot the capital city of Oyo state for economic integration.
He made a case for independent candidacy as an alternative to politics of insanity currently at play in Nigeria of today.
These and many other issues raised were not discussed by these people but some errors committed by APC led FG in some leadership level as pointed by Adelabu is what has become of utmost interest to these people. You can all do better!
There was no where in the media Interview Adelabu lashed out to the late Ajimobi, perhaps its a figment of their imagination. This mundane thought is a pointer that Oyo APC has no credible and popularly acceptable candidate to present to good people of Oyo State.
Rather than preocuppy on how to market their candidate, attempt to twist Adelabu brilliant submissions is what seems most prominent to them. This is a stale tactics.
Adelabu is a Gubernatorial candidate of ACCORD party and for no reason should these fellows expect him to market the weaning image of their party, APC and their rejected candidate without iota of credibility.
Moreso, they also smuggled the anti Asiwaju narrative into the media space. Adelabu said his Governorship ambition is what is most important to him. To them this is an anti Asiwaju statement. Sadly, those who once said Adelabu should distance self from Asiwaju are now the ones also saying he is running down Asiwaju Presidential ambition.
Adelabu – Asiwaju alignment did not start from politics and should not be reduced to politics. It is a relationship beyond public comprehension.
I hope the reality of what’s to come is fast dawning on you all including the state ruling party. Campaign of calumny and malignant is their area of specialization but we won’t dwell with you in the mud, we are far better than that, and more importantly, the electorates are wiser than before. They know their onions and they can fast highlight on their political and ideological preference.
2023 is the Accord year. The growing populaces will outline where their passion and true path lies in the forthcoming election.
