Wake up from your slumber, Ogun PDP Chieftain prods Governor Abiodun 

A Peoples Democratic Party Chieftain in Ogun state and the spokesperson to the 2019 Presidential Candidate Atiku Abubakar of Peoples Democratic Party, Segun Sowunmi has charged the governor of Ogun state, Dapo Abiodun to inject some speed into governance and give back the dividends of election to the people of Ogun state.

In a separate letter written within the same week to the political leaders in Ogun state and Governor Dapo Abiodun, Sowunmi expressed his dissatisfaction with the incumbent governor, saying the Ogun governor has been underperforming, declaring his activities as “snail slow speed” and lack of preparedness.

He continuously said the decision of not having full structures of governance in place in Ogun state limits the ideas and energy of the current government in the state.

“There is the suspicion that those who do not form their cabinets on time are people who desire to run the resources of the state with their cronies, and without input from a cabinet. Whatever be the excuse, it is clear that on this score, one would have to wonder what has become of us. All our neighbours, Lagos and Oyo states, have their cabinets in place, why not Ogun? I am sure his party faithful and supporters are at a loss as to the real reason behind the delay.” Segun Sowunmi added.

Jabbing the incumbent governor, the PDP pointsman said words on the streets of Ogun State are not favourable, revealing average opinion is that the Governor has taken on a responsibility that he is not prepared for.

“Within six months, it was already clear that the Osoba government would take development to the fringes of the state and that the rural areas would get connected with activities. His Commissioner for Works, Segun Adesegun, had settled in office, and his office had become a beehive. At about the same time of six months, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, during his time, had become the wonder boy in government and project development. The entire country knew that something was up in Ogun State. Computerisation of the civil service had commenced. Also, structures and projects were already commissioned. Need I say that Daniel’s pace of work was, till then, unmatched in our country. Ogun State was in the news for all the right reasons.” Segun Sowunmi narrates.

Sowunmi further chided Governor Abiodun on what he regarded as a “needless Thanksgiving parade,” saying the decision of the governor going from one church to the other, giving testimonies, from Redeemed, to Deeper Life, to London, not leaving out all other small altars is not necessary.

He revealed that within the period of first six months into government under review, former governor of Ogun stae, Ibikunle Amosun had performed “far far” better than Dapo Abiodun.

“Just take the bios of Amosun’s commissioners, and you would agree that he was prepared for governance long before he won the election, with his ability to get such good hands to work with in record time, without having to hire an unending list of strange bed fellows to engage in a fruitless moonlight dance without drums.” Sowunmi added.

He further berated the decision of the incumbent government to list the creation of job portal as an achievement, declaring it is below ‘Ogun standard.’

“He claims he is sharing money under some dubious arrangements termed okowo Dapo. He might please do himself a favour and ask OGD how the model of cooperative and community development was done; and I would particularly encourage him to ask about the matching grant scheme, so that he would stop irritating us, the good people of Ogun State, with laughable claims of achievements that are in no way near the ‘A’ standards we are used to.

“He claims he bought cars for the Police. The last time I checked, the profiteering venture has been lying waste on the grounds of the arcades for months. It will be news if he has delivered them to the Police. Even a Simpleton knows the kind of financial pressure that may tempt the Governor to run a “me and my cronies” government for a few months. But running this kind of government for six months? It is definitely unacceptable to any freeborn Ogun indigene, not minding those waiting on his never coming appointments.” Sowunmi jabbed Dapo Abiodun.

Condemning the activities of the current administration, Sowunmi alleged the “all-inclusive” slogan of Governor Dapo Abiodun was intended to cage all potentially divergent opinions and strong voices in Ogun state, saying the slogan was carefully selected to gag opposition.

Concluding his words, Segun Sowunmi charged the Governor of Ogun state to wake up from his slumber, do the needful and stop listening to the sweet words of his supporters, opining the current governor can resign from office in case he finds the office too complicated to handle.
