Wale Adedayo & Senator Ibikunle Amosun
"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"

The killings were continuation of inter-cult war between Eiye and Aye. My heart feel heavy for mothers whose children have been wasted. For the upteenth time, Ogun State Governor,Senator Ibikunle Amosun, should do the needful to stem the tide of these killings. We are losing young people in a needless manner!
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
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 ...

But SIA gets the most kudos because I've had to go back to 2008 when Hon. Titi Oseni was removed as Speaker, OGHA, and we could not gain the confidence of the lawmakers to enable them sit at a roundtable with us, and return her to office. Maybe he listened to advice. Maybe others did help him. But the reality is that in this case at hand, SIA passed where we failed. It is not easy getting opposition legislators to your table as Governor. It is even more difficult getting your party members who are opposed to you due to internal party issues. Yet, they all heeded his call for an amicable resolution of the crisis. I'll still write on this some other day. Maybe, Hassan needs to whisper some things to his neighbour and in-law in Bayelsa State about The Presidency's frosty relationship with the House of Representatives , which is controlled by the ruling Peoples D ...
