Immediate past caretaker chairman of Ibadan North West local government of Oyo State, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun has described as untrue news making the round as untrue, noting that it is criminal to link him with any protest against Governor Abiola Ajimobi.
Protest had greeted the appointment of new caretaker committee chairmen for local government and local council development areas.
Olatubosun, together with some others, were not returned as caretaker chairmen.
He frowned at what he called ‘widespread hallucinations’ making round of his unfounded grouse towards the appointment of new set of party people to steer the affairs of council areas across the state by Gov. Ajimobi, maintaining that he remained totally faithful to the governor in the successful administration of the state by always being a liberal party promoter.
Olatubosun, therefore advised “unscrupulous elements within the government and party to be cautious of destructive rumours they bandy around in the name of politickings.”
According to him who spoke on a radio programme monitored in Ibadan, he did not sponsor any group of people “from either within or outside the state to stage a protest or fan ember of discord capable of denting the enviable image of the government and the party in the state.”
He further said that “in view of my stewardships as the immediate past caretaker chairman of my council, our concepts as an administration were tailored around popular demands of the stakeholders despite the meagre financial resources, compounded by the heavy wage bills of workers, which militated against the massive execution of the intended people oriented projects across the 11 wards of the council area.”
The former secretary of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) who also coordinate a socio-political group- Ajumose Coalition Movements(ACM), also reiterated his unwavering loyalty and commitment towards the success of the second term in office of the governor and continued dominance of the ruling APC) in the state.
