Chief Bayo Adelabu


Political gladiators across party lines have started trading words after the All Progressives Congress APC gubernatorial candidate in 2019 general elections, Chief Adebayo Adelabu attended a political programme on private radio station, FreshFM Ibadan, Oyo state capital on Saturday.

Notably among those that discredited what Chief Adebayo Adelabu said while on air is the Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Akeem Olatunji.

1. GSM increased Oyo State IGR from N24 billions to N38 billions in less than 2 years, late Ajimobi grew State IGR from N14 billions to N24 billions in 8 years despite crude oil windfall, excess crude payment to States and Paris Club refund but to Adelabu, late Ajimobi was a better manager probably because the shortfalls go to Boudilion for some elites to loot whereas GSM has the good people of Oyo State to serve and accountable to.

2. Oloye Bayo Adelabu described the achievement of Governor Seyi Makinde on sole ownership of LAUTECH as wasteful which means that APC cares less about the future of the students.

3. He criticized the GSM led PDP administration for making use of alternative funding for the execution of numerous projects being embarked upon by the Oyo State government and which has led to the completion of the 65 Km Ibadan/ Iseyin road but Oloye Adelabu forgot to tell the listeners how the Build Operate and Transfer, BOT, failed the former Governor Ajimobi led APC administration on the proposed 5 Star Hotel at Dandaru Mokola, Circular road project initiated by former Governor Ladoja led PDP government but awarded based on BOT by former Governor Ajimobi as well as other projects which never see the light of the day. As a Banker of repute, I don’t expect Oloye Adelabu to be preaching the same failed procedure applied by late Ajimobi.

4. I doubt if Oloye Adelabu goes out of the confine of his Hotel room, if not he should have known that works here started on most of the 351 Public Health Centres across the State.

5. I will reserve my further comments, Oloye Adelabu is someone I like being of the same age bracket but he needs to understand that no one changes a winning team as represented by GSM and PDP.
