The recent debacle surrounding the false claim by Remi Omowaiye and Ismail Omipidan about the Osogbo-Ikirun-IlaOdo road in Osun state has left a bad taste in the mouths of APC members in the state.
The duo tried to twist the facts and tell lies about the road, but they were quickly called out by the people of Osun state, who questioned their integrity and asked them to bury their heads in shame.It is disheartening to see that some people would rather play politics with developmental projects that are meant to benefit the people.
The lofty construction of the Osogbo-IlaOdo road is a project that was started by former Governor Rauf Aregbesola, but unfortunately, he could not complete it during his 8-year tenure. When Governor Oyetola came into office, he couldn’t do any significant work on the project in his his 4-year tenure.
However, in just 3 months, the administration of Governor Ademola Adeleke was able to complete a 10.5km dual carriage of the road.
This is a feat that the Oyetola administration could not achieve, and it is something that should be celebrated by all well-meaning individuals in the state.It is, therefore, disappointing to see individuals like Remi Omowaiye and Ismail Omipidan – both top functionaries of the defunct Oyetola Administration – trying to discredit the good work of Governor Adeleke.
These individuals should know better than to play politics with developmental projects that are meant to benefit the people.The people of Osun state have however spoken through the comment sections of the social media posts made by Omowaiye and Omipidan.
They have called them out and even recoined their names to reflect their perceived lack of integrity. Omowaiye was renamed Omowaiyeiro while Omipidan was christened Omiparo. It is clear that the people of Osun state are tired of politicians who put their personal interests above the development of the state.Some of the comments read
✓’You are are a complete failure and you should be ashamed of yourself… The greatest disaster ever happen to Osun State is Oyetola led administration and Remi Omowaiye Oluremi as a cabinet, never again would you come as commissioner for Osun people’
✓’Aare oniro of Osun state….Bro omowaye you don’t have shame coming to this app again and continue comment rubbish here’
✓’When we see a commendable effort let us learn to appreciate it even if it is from our enemies. Let us agree that the work done on the road is 30% within a month. That is a great achievement’
✓’I carefully went through comments here, no one favours your post. I agree with earlier comments that Oyetola’s administration where u served as a commissioner is a failure and disaster to our dear state. May Osun never witness Pharaoh like you and your principal again. Amen’✓’Omiparo.
You were in office for 4 years, you couldn’t complete a project, a new administration came within 100 days and completed it. You are not even ashamed of yourself and your principal. Shame on you. Shame on Oyetola and APC’✓
‘You know nah nonsense you wan post. Dats why you’re posting around 12midnight. But still you go collect wotowoto self.
Why you and your boss no finish am?’
‘May oyetola Neva happen to us again shio’In conclusion, the completion of the Osogbo-Ikirun-IlaOdo road by the administration of Governor Ademola Adeleke is a welcome development, and it should be celebrated by all well-meaning individuals in the state. It is time for politicians to put aside their differences and work together for the development of the state.
It is also important for individuals like Remi Omowaiye and Ismail Omipidan to refrain from playing politics with developmental projects and focus on self-development
