"The same scenario is currently playing out in Ogun State, where the PDP and Labour Party are waxing stronger by the day despite the projects being done by the Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun. Public opinion among the elites favour the APC and Amosun in many centres. But it is a different story among the lower classes, who constitute at least 70% of the voting population. The urge to control the APC structure in Ogun State has divided the party and currently giving undue advantage to the opposition, who appear set to rid Oke Mosan of Amosun come 2015". Extract from Wale Adedayo's write-up "Fayose’s victory, another lesson for APC leaders"
Former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, maintained contradictory positions on events surrounding the 10 January 2009 attempted assassination of his former Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Wale Adedayo, at a Shagamu High Court on Thursday, as he insisted the attack was a fiction manufactured by the victim. Daniel had gone to court seeking redress for alleged libel contained in an account of the attack, “Micro-seconds away from death,” written by Adedayo and published by Journal Communications Limited. Represented in court by Prof. Taiwo Osipitan, SAN, the former governor wants N500 million as damages claiming the accounts in the book were flawed. Responding to questions from counsel for the defence, Mr. Olumide Fusika, the former governor feigned ignorance of the attack despite acknowledging evidence through an electronic mail (e-mail) that former Commissioner for Information & Orientation, Mr. Kayode Samuel, and Security Adviser, Alhaji Lamidi Odulawa, along with former Olabisi Onabanjo University ...
They claimed there was no attack. Yet, their agents addressed a press conference claiming armed robbers struck. Yes, they admitted Ogun State Government vehicle was used. But they claimed it was snatched from OOU VC, Prof. Osilesi. They said one of the robbers was killed, when we knew three of the assassins fell. Even the body of the one they acknowledged was felled has not been seen till date. But when their stories could not add up, campaign to smear Wale Adedayo began. They said all was a lie. Their own press conference and Osilesi's apparance too. Our Obas in Ogun State lent themselves to be used. Special Thanks to Alaiyeluwa (Engr. Kasali), the Moyegeso of Ijebu Itele. When Prof. Wole Soyinka lamented about our Obas, I remember telling CB there is one who will NEVER compromise with evil - Moyegeso. Glory be to God for today. Contradictions galore. God is not asleep. We WILL triumph!
The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, should take his eyes off non-performing local government chairmen by allowing the Legislature of the Third Tier of Government to sanction them appropriately. I am not comfortable with SIA's penchant for suspending Councils who try to sanction their chairmen. This attitude smacks of dictatorship. It cannot help this young democracy because the local government is where democracy ought to thrive the most for the citizens to really benefit from governance. This Imeko Afon Local Government matter is a very sad reminder of that of Ijebu East Local Government. Those elected should be allowed to do their jobs without being treated as appointees of the State Government. -Wale Adedayo
A citation of the Guest Lecturer at Ijebu News Xtra 2nd Year Anniversary, Otunba Oluseyi Oduntan, read by Mr. Wale Adedayo at Grand Inn Hotel & Suites, GRA, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Sunday, 24 November 2013. Oluseyi Adelaja Oduntan (Seyi) was born into a deeply committed Christian royal family that remains distinguished in several areas, the most important of which are, high integrity, great moral standing, attachment to high principles, respect for human dignity total dedication, unyielding commitment to the pursuit of excellence, and above all, the fear of God. His father was the late Otunba Benjamin Adefolarin Oduntan, the Baba Oba of Iworo Ijebu who was, until he retired from service, a Permanent Secretary in the Old Western Region. His Uncle, Otunba Victor Abayomi Oduntan, the late Otunba Obaruwa of Ijebuland continued the illustrious tradition and service to the Civil service by becoming the Secretary to the State Government and simultaneously the Head of Service to the Ogun State Government, a unique ...
I understand some of my friends in Abeokuta are not happy with the comments I made about the shoddy treatments given to the Olota of Ota by the Ogun State Government as the monarch tried to install a new Iyaloja in his domain yesterday. They should by now have known Wale Adedayo. I am not a saint. But I say it AS IT IS (in Mushin, Lagos, "Bo se wa niyen!). We must not have two sides of the truth. And power can change hands tomorrow, with today's policies destined for the garbage bins. Those around leaders MUST do everything possible to satisfy their conscience and God. We must not because of losing our jobs or relevance shy away from telling the truth. What if I get all the money and position in the world today, and God says it is time to call me home by evening? If the Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, is following in OGD's footsteps, you guys owe him, your conscience and God to tell him to his face. You cannot order your boss around. But it is your duty to let him know when he is missing it. In my book ...
media in a young democracy*Wale Adedayo (This piece was updated early last year when some colleagues began attacking my person for writing about issues in Ogun State and how pecuniary gains made a number of them look the other way concerning sundry allegations against the Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel. It is being reproduced for friends in the light of the allegations by former Editor of The PUNCH, Mr. Steve Ayorinde.) I often get criticised by colleagues for describing Nigeria as a young democracy. And interestingly enough, some senior journalists regularly compare the situation in the country to that of the developed democracies when commenting about the shortcomings of the Nigerian system. Unfortunately for such individuals, the fact that the independent media and the judiciary were allowed to flourish under military rule, which they are used to, does not mean we have developed democratically because periodic elections have now been added. Democracies depend on institutions that have nothing to do wit ...
Wale Adedayo, former Chief Press Secretary to Ex Governor Gbenga Daniel wrote: It has just come to my notice that some elements are circulating certain twisted facts claiming that same were given out by Wale Adedayo. These elements should remember I affirmed that what we discussed are contained in my book, "The traitors of Ogun State." It has nothing to do with former Minister of Solid Minerals, Alhaji Sarafa Tunji Ishola, as a person. Unfortunately, it was twisted and made to look like that because these elements favour another OGD son. They want to use my name to fight a proxy war. The relevant portion from Chapter Three (An insecure principal) of my book, "The Traitors of Ogun State" will be posted here soon.
"If it is true that, "ti omode ba l'aso bi agba, ko le ni akisa bi agba," then I am sorry for my friend, the Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun. I strongly feel that the Aremo Olusegun Osoba side of the Ogun StateACN divide will laugh last." - Wale Adedayo
