Dapo Abiodun : The story of the Devil who came to steal, kill and destroy -          Olaniyi Olayinka, Ogun

The political scene of Nigeria in recent times has featured a lot of attacks from several places, there has been so many scandals, so many court cases, so many battles in most states after the party primaries that were held.

One of the state that is still battling to recover from the results of the primaries is Ogun state, governed by Senator Ibikunle Amosun.

The party primaries for the governorship candidates of the All Progressive Congress came up and at the end of the day, an aspirant, Dapo Abiodun emerged the winner of the primaries as against Governor Amosun’s Candidate, Mr Akinlade popularly called Tripple A.

Although, Governor Amosun was clearly trying to impose his candidate on the people of Ogun state through a clearly illegal primary election and is still trying every possible means to do so, but that is a story for another day.

Now, Dapo Abiodun emerged as the governorship candidate shockingly, not because of Governor Amosun’s rejection of him but because of the ways and means with which he emerged.

Dapo Abiodun has been off the scene of politics for sometime when the likes of Bimbo Ashiru, Jimi Lawal, Remmy Hassan, Otunba Rotimi Paseda, etc have been rooting for support of people to vote for them as their governor. It has been over a year since they have been doing it and most especially in the APC, I reliably gathered that Jimi Lawal has been working for the past 18 months, visiting local governments, doing consultations and so on but Dapo Abiodun, who just showed interest in July 2018, barely three months to the primary elections claimed to have won. However, this isn’t as if he is loved or he is wanted, infact, he was described by a lot of people as arrogant, cunny, and devilish, this simply shows how crooked his ways are. Many aggrieved party members described him as wicked having chased and harassed many of them to retrieve vehicles after he his last failed bid to be a Senator.

In the holy books, it was said that ‘ The Devil cometh not but to steal, Kill, and Destroy’, a thief comes in the night, when everything has been settled, when the goodies have been well arranged, when the truth is prevailing, the devil comes suddenly like a storm and steal whatever has been prepared, kill whoever is blocking his way, destroy whatever he feels he can’t do away with.

Similarly, Dapo Abiodun came at a time when people already had their candidate in mind and embarked on a very desperate journey to win Ogun state by all means.

By stealing, Dapo Abiodun stole the people’s mandate in Ogun state suddenly, according to sources, a night before the primaries, Dapo Abiodun camped the National Working Committee (NWC) who were 8 in number, lodged them in a hotel, fed them and made them sign a report of an election that didn’t take place though only 5 orn6 of them signed. In fact, the election wasn’t monitored by INEC, materials for voting weren’t available in most places, it looked like there were no primaries in Ogun state, yet, that kind of result was still approved by the party leadership. Were they also compromised?

By Killing, Dapo Abiodun, through his ways ‘killed’ the votes of the good people of Ogun state, in the few places that election took place, the candidate people voted for wasn’t Dapo Abiodun because a research has been carried out after the primaries and it was discovered that Dapo Abiodun wasn’t voted for at all. Dapo Abiodun got the support of left over Yayi members, but they were too few to make an impact.

By Destroying, it was also revealed that so many people were beaten on the day of election by thugs in Ogun state reason being that their choice of candidate negates that of Dapo Abiodun who brought police and military personnel from outside the State.

By this, the primary elections in Ogun state should rightly be nullified and another one should be conducted or a consensus candidate be agreed upon.
