Adeleke's Commissioner-nominees: *Don't Expect Anything Good From The Bunch - Osun APC Chairman Tells Citizens

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has consoled the people of the state over the choice of the new set of the commissioner-nominees rolled out by Governor Ademola Adeleke which was announced by his puppet and lay figure Speaker of the State House of Assembly, the Right Honourable Adewale Egbedun, yesterday.

The party described it as the worst assemblage of the government actors that would ever be witnessed in the history of the 32-year-old State of the Virtuous, insisting that it has further exposed another failed promise of the Adeleke-led administration.

The Osun State Chairman of the APC, Sooko Tajudeen Lawal, in his comment which was contained in a statement issued by the state party's Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo on Saturday, stated that there is nothing to celebrate about the galaxy of Hallelujah men and women who will be annoyingly entrusted with the governance of the state through their various ministries.

Lawal however, stated that it would not be proper to be collective in his excoriation and castigation of the Adeleke administration cluster as there are few ones in the horrible, horrendous and obnoxious commissioner-nominees list that have distinguished themselves in their callings either in private endeavours or public offices.

He clinically observed that the literarily pieces of bent firewood among the batch could not, in anyway, be an asset to the administration of the rudderless Adeleke's government.

In Lawal's words: "What are we even saying about the composition of the Adeleke administration commissioner-nominees?  Can a government be better than the quality of the head of such government? The answer is a capital NO. 

"It is an impossible Utopia as one cannot plant corn and expect to harvest banana no matter the injection of the intervention of a scientific methodology", the state APC chairman hinted.

Lawal also observed that the highlighted portion of the commissioner-nominees scenario that is hyper offensive to the sensibilities of the discerning minds in the state is the governor's explanation that a wife of his late brother, one Mrs Adenike Folashade Adeleke, could not be counted as a member of his immediate family in Ede.

He disclosed that all  efforts  by Governor Adeleke to confuse and convince any right-thinking members of the society with any grammatical and political chicanery to prove that he is not truly guilty of nepotism has fallen flat as in the Nigerian parlance, once a woman is married to any particular family, she has wholly become a part and parcel of such family.

In the further view of the Osun State APC chairman about the composition of the Adeleke commissioner-nominees, apart from the fact that the slots are heavy in some local governments without considering the propriety of others, the parade of only two females in the list of 25 nominees is an arrant and unmitigated balderdash, hogwash and bunkum which is against the adopted World standard in any saner state and also contrary to the promise the governor made to the women while campaigning.

He stated that though it is not the business of the APC to teach Adeleke of the PDP extraction how to run his government, the party is concerned that most of the nominees have no sound and verifiable backgrounds.

Lawal noted that the list of the Adeleke commissioner-nominees further vindicated the Osun State chapter of the APC on the allegation that there were serpents with divided loyalty in the party as two chieftains of the defunct self-styled The Osun Progressives (TOP) under the patronship of former Minister of Interior, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, in the persons of Barr Kolapo Alimi and Mr Biyi Odunlade,  made the list. This further attests to the fact that there has been a secret alliance between the TOP members and the PDP.

It would be recalled that Adeleke voiced out shortly after his inauguration that the loyalists of Aregbesola were instrumental to his victory as they worked for him during the governorship and other elections in the state.

Lawal wondered why the delay till yesterday before he could make public the list of his commissioner-nominees when that was all that Adeleke could come up with in close to eight months of his administration.

He hinted that one would have thought that the delay in the generation of the commissioner-nominees by Adeleke was informed by his resolve to bring same from another planet!

The state APC chairman explained that a literary antelope with a swollen scrotum is a source of joy for the hunter with a charge to the Osun State indigenes not to expect any miracle from the Adeleke administration through his array of new commissioners as it is pretty difficult for someone to give what he does not possess.


*Sooko TAJUDEEN LAWAL,                                  Chairman,                                                                 Osun State APC.*
