As a taxpayer and electorate in Osun State, I came across a write up with a content drawing a semblance between President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State. While I do not hold brief for the Nigeria president, as an interested party with a locus standi in Osun progress, I have taken a cursory look at the piece as a third party and I can not but make this observation.
The euphemistic and sarcastic style of the piece will undoubtedly attract any reader to it. The content therein embedded in fallacy and outright misrepresentation of fact and unconscionable allusion to the principle of natural justice as well as the comparative analysis of semblance also demand this my comment as a third party who is neither connected to the writer nor the Governor, save that one is a tax payer who has right to know.
In this age and time when the business of information generation and marketing is replete with imagination, outright concoction and fake news, one would expect any marchant in this regards to support any of his averment with evidence.
Its incredulous piece, its laughable how any sane mind will allude to Governor Gboyega Oyetola of incompetence and Nepotism. How on Earth can a man like Gboyega Oyetola be described as incompetent? A man who succeeded an administration where salary payment had become a mirage with the prevalent half salary regime. He reversed the trend with prompt and regular payment of salary, implementation of new minimum wage, when richer states had not even set machinery in motion for such implementation.
But if transparent prudence and frugality is “incompetence”, then Oyetola must be guilty of this, to have been able to construct roads across the State through an innovative contractor funding scheme (which does not happen anywhere in the country, but Osun state), renovated and built hospitals, put attractive policies in place to appeal to investors and revived moribund industries, pay pensions and the most recent Osun food scheme covering 30, 000 vulnerable Nigerians in the state monthly and lots more without borrowing.
If attending event punctually, respecting all shades of opinions, promoting a polity devoid of brigandage and shenenagans against the old practice and restoring value of hardwork for reward is “Incompetence”, then Governor Oyetola must be “incompetent”.
Governor Oyetola must be a “Nepotist” ,truly to superintend over an administration where every local governments and Local Council Development Areas is adequately represented by political appointees. I meticulously glanced through the writeup in search of names of one out of four appointees from Iragbiji as alleged, but could not identify one. I submit that the writer is helplessly coerced in his imagination and still engrossed in the immediate past of Osun state when people from Ogun and Ondo states including the “Igi Iye” manager and “Youngs” held sensitive political appointments without recourse to anyone.
It is saddening and appease to cheap politics for any person to describe the man in charge of the state as clueless, maybe for the peaceful ambience which is unarguably the most in Nigeria. For any discerning mind, a cursory look at the security situation anywhere in Nigeria will salute the sagacity and depth of the leadership of Governor Oyetola in keeping the atmosphere safe and secured for lawful citizens and visitors alike.
It is understandable if any Chief of Staff to a Governor is being alleged of exerting too much influence on his principal. Such campaign is no longer alien to the Nigeria political system, it is always the antics of mischief makers, they never argue from a position of knowledge and information, its their stock in trade.
A big thanks to the author of the piece for availing us the name of Oyetola son who he accused of being a “night crawler”. Assuming without conceding that Femi Oyetola is a crawler, the pertinent question to ask is whether such is a loss to the economy of the good people of Osun state and how? The people will not forget in a hurry a Governor’s Son who was defacto Governor and the chief contractor of the inglorious Opon Imo saga for which the state is still paying debt.
If this lamentation of a write up is a genuine criticism of Oyetola administration in the interest of Osun people, one would not worry, but this self serving concoction deserve a second look.
Evidently, the immense fecundity of Governor Oyetola’s imagination made a profound impact on the progress being witnessed in the state.
Meanwhile, let them be told Osun people are not seeking any new visitor in the Government House now.
OYETOLA IS STILL OK!.
