Ex-Banker Kills Pregnant Wife

THE family of Aderinlewo in Ile-Ife was thrown into mourning last week, when their daughter, Mrs. Taye Ajilosun, who was allegedly beaten by his husband, Titus Ajilosun bled to death at a hospital in Ile-Ife.
According to OSUN DEFENDER’s investigation, Taye had been married to Titus for twelve years before the sad event last week.

Investigations further revealed that the marriage was blessed with three children, with Taye expecting the fourth child, when the couple engaged in a minor scuffle, which eventually led to her death.

It was learnt that Taye, during the penultimate week, had told her husband, who was retrenched last year by one of the new generation banks, that she had to visit the hospital as her delivery date was approaching fast and that the husband should give her some money for the purpose.

A source within the deceased’s family further stated that the late Taye had told her husband to give her transport fare to the clinic, as she had ealier given the money on her to their children, who had resumed back in school, after the suspension of the two-week strike action embarked upon by primary school teachers in the state.

The source continued that Titus however insisted that Taye had money on her, but simply insisted that he must give her money, which led into a hot argument between the couple, further leading to the husband beating the wife.

The source continued that immediately Titus saw the wife was bleeding profusely after the beating, he fled the house and never came back home.

It was further gathered that the deceased’s cry of agony attracted their neighbours who helped her to Oshodi, from where she boarded a commercial bus to Ile-Ife, where her aged mother currently resides.

Immediately she got to the family residence, investigation revealed that Taiye was taken to Seventh Day Adventist Hospital, where she was hospitalized before she later died.

It was also revealed that the deceased was operated upon, when it was discovered that she was carrying a set of twins before she died.

Impeccable sources also revealed that Titus, having realized the gravity of his action, had since fled his residence in Lagos with the three children of the deceased when the family of the late wife called at his residence in Lagos.

The couple’s neighbours however told the family of the deceased, that the husband came later on the day, after the ugly incident, to pack his belongings and children to an unknown destination.

The source confirmed that a visit to the deceased children schools revealed that the children had not been coming to their respective schools, since the incident.

All efforts to speak to the mother of the late Mrs. Ajilosun proved abortive as she was being hospitalized in one of the spiritual churches in Ile-Ife.

3 Yr Old Girl Found In Soak-away

A corpse of a three year old baby was found dead in a soak-away behind his parent’s residence at Oke-Onitii area of Osogbo, Osun State Capital last Friday.

The child, as disclosed by a resident in the area, had been missing for about three days, before his body was discovered in the soak-away.

Narrating how the body was found, the source stated that the cloth worn by the boy was found near the soak-away by some children, which made them raised an alarm, thereby attracting elders’ attention.

According to the source, when the soak-away was opened, the body was found decaying, adding that from the way the body was, it might have been there for about two or three days.

Speaking further, the source stated that the soak-away cover had been weak for some time and had constituted risk to children adult as well.

However, another source who preferred anonymity told OSUN DEFENDER that the boy could not have fallen into the soak-way, adding that something is amiss about the issue.

While explaining further, the source hinted that though the soak-away was dilapidated, it was not to the extend that a child could just fall into it, adding that when people got there, there was no crack found on it.

According to him, the police needs to unravel the mystery behind the gory incident, saying that “today it is a child that fall victim, who knows whose turn it would be next.”

Investigations however revealed that since the boy was discovered missing three days before his body was found, the parents and neighbours have been suspecting a traditionalist residing in the area.

Neighbours of the parents alleged that it was after the boy had been used for ritual purposes that his body wad dumped in the soak-away.

The mother of the late child could not comment when approached by the medium, as she was crying uncontrollable and being consoled by her neighbours.

Meanwhile, the source added that the police authority have been informed of the development, saying that the people are optimistic that they (police) would unravel the mystery behind the little child death.

STUDENTS PELT OYINLOLA OVER WAEC EXAM

BY ISAAC OLUSESI

The convoy of Osun State Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola was last week held hostage in Osogbo by students in the state secondary schools.The incident which occurred some metres after Odo-Osun bridge, Gbongan-Ibadan Road, Osogbo, while Oyinlola was returning home on his only familiar route after the day in the office, had students in a large number calling the governor unprintable names. Sachets of  ‘pure water’  were also rained as missiles on the convoy.The students accused the governor of playing politics with the state qualifying exams for the West African School Certificate (WASC) examination due for the 2006/2007 academic year.

They claimed that sitting for the qualifying exams annually organized by the state government is the government’s standard for a student to become a registered candidate and beneficiary of  its payment for the actual WASC exams.

OSUN DEFENDER learnt that the qualifying exams in out-going school year was scheduled to hold in the daylight in the respective schools but the state government deliberately chose to extend the exams timetable to the dusk without notice to the affected students vide their school authorities.
According to the students, the untoward attitude of the government was to deprive many students the opportunity of sitting for the qualifying exams that ended last week in order to reduce the government expenses on the registered candidates for the WASC exams.The  differential in the amount of money which the government earmarked for WASC exams and what is actually paid on the WASC exams, the students reasoned, “would be embezzled by a few within the corrupt-ridden PDP government in the state.”

Further investigations by OSUN DEFENDER revealed that question papers arrived late to the examination centre at Fakunle Comprehensive High School, Osogbo due to paucity of fund.The more reason the examination which was slated for 8.am could not be made available until 5.00pm after majority of the students had left the centre.
It was learnt that while the aggrieved students were ruminating over their plight at a spot close to Osun River., Oyinlola’s convoy was coming from Abere, the seat of power.

A source close to the scene explained that the aggrieved students started calling the governor unprintable names and pelted his convoy with satchets of ‘pure water’.
“It was at this juncture that security operatives in the convoy of the governor arrested some of the students, carried them to Abere where they were beaten to stupor,” he said.Further investigations also revealed that the three principals of three secondary schools within the premises of Fakunle were quizzed over the incident.
It was also learnt that the government was planning to demote the affected principals with a threat that the Oyinlola administration won’t pay for NECO examination of the affected schools as he pledged during his campaign.

Meanwhile, the government, last week, hastily invented pre-degree programmes to be run in the University of Osun (UNIOSUN) and put the cost of admission forms at five thousand, one hundred naira only (N5,100).Students in the state and beyond prospecting for admission have expressed that the cost of the pre-degree forms is outrageously on high side and threatened to vandalize the pre-degree forms advert banner hung on a commercial bank opposite Fakunle Comprehensive High School I, Osogbo, remarking that the governor is only interested in extricating further the economically depleted prospective students of the university that is structurally yet to take off.

Investigations revealed that the government had earlier collected three thousand naira (N3,000:00) from well over 100,000 prospective students who already obtained the UNIOSUN entry forms besides the cost of JAMB form which was also borne by the cursory prospective students unsuspicious of the cupidity of the state government.
It would be recalled that this newspaper recently reported that UNIOSUN was taking off fraudulently to enable the government repay the much publicized N2bn allegedly borrowed from a commercial bank for the university project.

The huge loan, OSUN DEFENDER learnt, was allegedly divested to railroad Oyinlola back in the Bola Ige House, Osogbo, through the April 14 election that is still being contested at election petitions tribunal currently sitting in Osogbo.

OSUN GOVT SETS DEBT TRAP FOR SUCCESSOR

By KAYODE AGBAJE

Confronted by a possible defeat of Osun  State incumbent Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola by the Action Congress Aregbesola at Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Osogbo, the state capital, the state government has embarked on antics to frustrate incoming administration when eventually sworn into office.

This forms part of an extensive investigation conducted by OSUN DEFENDER on the plans of the current administration in the state if eventually ordered to vacate office by the Election Petitions Tribunal.

A senior political functionary who spoke to the medium on strict condition of anonymity revealed that the administration would comply with the tribunal’s pronouncement but certainly not without a fight.

According to the source, the fight has already started as the administration is currently engaged in discussion with management of some commercial banks with a view to securing loans to finance some phoney development projects across the state.

The loans, the source further revealed, run into several billions of naira and the primary purpose for seeking it is never for any meaningful developmental project but as a means of putting any in-coming administration into a financial mess on its assumption of office.

Discussions on the said loans with the concerned commercial banks have reached advanced stages as money may be released to the state government any time from now.

These loans are in addition to the ones already being serviced by the State Government under   Oyinlola which sources say also run into billions of naira.

The state’s allocation from the Federation Accounts and some of its landed properties in Lagos, Abuja and Osogbo have been tendered to serve as collateral for the loans, the state’s political functionary stated.

To cover its tracks and avoid being accused of financial mismanagement by the opposition in the state, the Oyinlola administration has decided to expend all the money on the newly–established Osun State University (UNIOSUN), and some other minor projects, the source emphasized.

The administration was emboldened to embark on this reckless financial venture by a recent report exposing some immediate past state governors, leaving mountain of debts for their individual successors to contend with, the source maintained.

In addition to this, Osun State Government has also concluded plans to present its list of candidates for the posts of commissioners to the State House of Assembly where the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lacks the mandatory two-thirds majority required for the passage of the list.

Since the elected AC members have refused to attend any of the House sittings in protest of arrest and detention of their colleagues by the Oyinlola administration, no major decision has been taken by the House.

Despite this short-coming, the state government is still reported to have resolved to go ahead with the presentation and ensure its passage by the legislature without the required two-third majority.

Oyinlola Is A Rogue
written by Engr. Akano M. Ademola, July 09, 2007

I have always been saying it that mere looking at Oyinlola’s face you will be able to read a lot of his characters. He IS A ROGUE.

In 2006 my Cousin and a friend (OSIEC-EO) who are a prominent PDP members have told me what Oyinlola promised them to do for opposition especially Aregbesola that he is going to make use of all his 30 years millitary experience to suppress them and this is a man that will go on TV and be saying he is peace maker.

If he likes let him go and borrow from IMF and World Bank Aregbesola will still perform because his vision transcient monetry limitations.

OYINLOLA IS NOT SINCERE WITH UNIOSUN – AREGBE

OSUN State Action Congress (AC) governorship candidate, Engineer Rauf Aregbesola has alerted the people of the state not to take the incumbent Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola serious on the establishment of the state university, saying it is an act of deceit.

Aregbesola who was answering questions on a programme organized by the state council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Osogbo on Tuesday noted that it was unthinkable for Oyinlola to lure the people of the state with the establishment of a university when his administration was already on its way out.

His words: “How can a responsible administration start a university at the twilight of its tenure? It is a deceit. He (Oyinlola) knows that what he cannot do. I, Rauf Aregbesola will do it. I will build a virile and functional university while all the tertiary institutions in the state will become degree awarding institutions.

“I went to school and I was never taught an art of deception. It is only at the Defence Academy that deception is being taught. Whoever does not pass it will not be allowed to graduate. They are professionals in the art of deception. It is only the military that put on camouflage, civilians don’t”, Aregbesola said.

The AC governorship candidate who hinted that currently Osun State ranks third from the bottom in public examinations pledged that his administration would introduce functional education in the state.
He said all dilapidated public school structures would be rebuilt within two years of his assumption of office, adding that “as from August 1, 2007, three teachers would be appointed tutors-general (equivalent of permanent secretary) in the state”.

Aregbesola, who said he was supremely comfortable with the incoming election, lamented drought of visionary leaders in the state since its creation.
He said: “It is true that my being a commissioner in Lagos State has exposed me to the nitty-gritty of politics. It is painful that Osun State has not have effective governance for quite some time now, except during the leadership of Chief Bisi Akande and the late Chief Bola Ige and the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo in the old Oyo State and old Western Region respectively.

He recalled the fact that Oyinlola is not resourceful, disclosing that his internally generated revenue when he was Lagos State administrator was N200m monthly; which Marwa, his successor raised to N600 million, adding that “Governor Ahmed Bola Tinubu raised it to N6 billion.

“No administration has ever succeeded in doing what we have done in Lagos State. We have done more than 15 major roads among others. We are rebuilding the entire roads in the business central district of Lagos. We remain the only government that can challenge some myopic and egocentric national leaders who don’t have the interest of the people at heart”, he said.

The candidate who accused Oyinlola’s government of being lethargic and puerile, challenged the government to a street walk contest in any part of the state including Okuku, his town and see whose crowd would be larger.

His words: “Oyinlola ruled Lagos for three years, were he to have performed well he would have attracted meaningful people to himself. Oyinlola is simply  unpopular.

“Hunger will be banished and life will be more abundant. If I stand in front of your establishment (NUJ Council) for 10 minutes, there will be a traffic hold-up because I radiate love and my personality generates love”, he said.

Aregbesola hinted that President Olusegun Obasanjo has retrenched over 3,000 workers within the last one year.

“In May 1, 2006 I made a declaration to employ 20,000 workers. Oyinlola absorbed only 1,000 retrenched staff. I will absorb the remaining and convert their period of retrenchment to leave.

“How can Oyinlola account for billions of naria he collected from Abuja from 2003 to date? Chief Bisi Akande did not collect up to one quarter of the revenue collected by Oyinlola so far,” he explained.

The AC candidate said the present leaders of this nation were self-serving, adding that “we know those who are building hotels, mansions and petrol filing stations across the state. The bane of this nation today is that we have misfits as our leaders. People are the deciders of their own fate”.

He promised that he would create more jobs for the people of the state saying, “I, Rauf Aregbesola, I am not a job snatcher, I am a job creator”.

Setting the record straight over an allegation in some quarters that he was a religious fundamentalist, he said: “I am a devout Muslim and I don’t joke with it. I am, however, against religious bigotry”.

The AC flagbearer who also spoke on sports and sporting activities said: “We shall have football viewing centres. We shall build a befitting stadium in the state with establishment of miniature stadia across the state. Callisthenic will return to the state within the first six months of our administration,” he promised.

Many cheers to gubernatorial candidate Raufu Aregbesola and his vision of a better Osun State. As for the incumbent governor, there is little to show for four years of tenure in our state. Speaking of which: Didn’t Oyinlola promise to build a University of Osogbo when he campaigned for the post in 2003? No sooner had he assumed office than he began to find excuses for why a univeristy could not be built in Osogbo. Sure, we all know it takes money to establish a virile institution of higher learning, but if Pa Awolowo could build the University of Ife (now OAU) with such meagre fair, why couldn’t Oyinlola build one with all the excess allocations coming to the state. What he failed to accomplish in four years, he is now promising to do in the remaining three weeks of his tenure. What we have seen in Osun state in the last four years has been nothing but an erosion of the gains made by Oyinlola’s predecessor in office. To put it in the words of our great legal luminary, Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) following the shooting to death of Kunle Adepeju by the Nigeria Police Force back in the late sixties, Oyinlola’s administratition, like that of the then UnIbadan Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Lambo, is “guilty of adminstrative inertia.” This man has brought Osun state to a standstill and because of his “baba n’gbejo” his assets are yet to be probed by EFCC. Abeg, time for a change. Oyinlola must be voted out. Osun indigenes will use the power of the ballot to boot out corruption and gross ineptitude in the state. Let’s all turn out on election day to cast our vote in favor of change and progress in Osun state by voting for a man with integrity, vive and experience, Engr Raufu Aregbosola. Osun A Gbe Wa O!

Aregbesola Dun Jo Oyinlo
written by Akano M. Ademola, March 14, 2007

The fact about Aregbesola as acandidate is that he is adequately qualify to become the governor. He has all that it tke to perform excellently well having been tutored by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for good eight years.

I have been in Lagos before 1999 but now I can see the difference in the road construction and reconstruction.

Aregbesola has been in charge of this wonderful work in Lagos state.

I have been following his Campaign he discusses issues but not person. He is up to the task of defeat Oyinlola in the coming April election.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!
written by Prince Akinjide Akinyooye (08028275739), March 15, 2007

It is very disappointing that Alhaji Rauf Aregbesola failed to sell his own programmes to the people of Osun State. Instead, he was critising laudable establishment of Osun State University, at Osogbo… An attempt which no other government has initiated since creation of our state. Mr. Aregbesola should remember that his party leader (Chief Adebisi Akande) had opportunity of governing our state with constant song of “impossibility” when it comes to establishment of University by the State Government.

If Mr. Aregbesola doubt the possibility, reality and successful implimentation of the new University. He should conjoin the people of Osun State by declaring support for Oyinlola`s return for second term. Hence, we shall all have opportunity to re-assess Prince Olagunsoye at the end of his second term.

Importantly, we have genuine confidence in capability of our performing Governor. Indeed, Aregbesola and his team should limit thier politics of grudges and biterness to Lagos State, where they shall return after democratic rejection through gubernatorial election.

OYINLOLA’S SECOND TERM WILL BE A TOTAL WASTE
written by Richard, March 18, 2007

I can frankly tell you that there hasnt been any development since the beginning of this present administration. Why that programmes used in 2003 to lure the people of Osun State was just a month to the end of this current dispensation been embarked upon? It was never done like that. The Uni of Osogbo, the dualisation of Gbongan Road are all a case. Isnt this same state with Kogi, Abia and Anambra created same year. They all built an ultra mordern university as well as a good dualization of major roads in there respective states within a dispensation.
This same project the PDP assured us about during the former campaign and failed and now having the guts to re-schedule it again this year as campaign strategics. Im telling you the people of Osun State, other states will be very sorry for you.
I see no reason why if come to think of it, if a party fail that another party can’t be make do with the next time whether going to serve you well or not.
The people of osun state, please lets be wise. Thank you.

We can not continue to deceive ourselves, i am a citizen of Nigeria fron Osun State, in past years i have been visiting the state and my local government, and still have not seen any changes in the way of life of the people of the state, talk of good roads,education system, standard of living, security, the issue of security is so bad that the citizen provide for themselves security, our Osun state is not bringing towards itself profitable investors, every secondary school student wants to leave the state, because they can’t even get a part time job even at the completion of their waec examination.
PDP! why must it be this time! your educational reforms, trying to provide us an unrealistic 10,000MW of electricity, why this time?if u had tought all this couldbe possible in less than a year, then why have you waited till the end of your tenure, maybe, they are all for campaign purposes. People deceiving people. Its about time we began to see new tings happening in the state, living should be made easy for people, sure i love the introduction of the Osun state university, but, should it have been at this time? why not 2003,2004,2005, why is it coming at the end, and the verge of election, what’s the probability that it will even be completed if the present government is being re-elected to office come may2007, because, its as if the government is giving out something, and expecting something in return. Nigeria is blessed, Osun state is blessed, and i pray for a new and a better Osunstate, Osun is our home, i don’t have to be in power to lift my state, am proud of Osun and proud to be who i am. I love Osun state.

Ohhh Mr Alejo as regards to what you said, nobody is being baised here. No one force the governor in 2003 to make the university as one of the campaign promises. So now that we have another dispensation that the governor is using this same strategic to campaign that he was being froced. Probably may be you are one of those the governor has dashed some wherewithal in order to be on his side. And why wont you say we re being biased. Isnt this so easily seen that its all for campaign sake in which thereafter the university project will be abandom. Better lets all say no to Oyinlola’s comeback or else you will be no 1 on the list of those who will fall victim of the governor’s trap.

Prince said in one of his write up that he came from Orolu-Ifon and that no state government impact is felt in the area and he is aware that the same happened in Irepodun-Ilobu nothing to point to.

Why can’t we be honest to ourselves has Oyinlola done anything tangible with all the money he has collected on behalf of the state?.

April poll will justify us because people are now wise. The thugs that this people are now engaging in attacking opponents at their rallies cannot stop the wish of God and the people.

Stop deceiving Osun state people PDP
written by Taye Adesoye, April 02, 2007

I was schooling in Lagos State when Oyinlola was controlling the State and very sure to say he did nothing. I told my people when he was to be elected in 2003 that he will fail Osun State people and I know he has leave to my expectation. Please for God sake if you go to Lagos and see what Engineer Rauf Aregbesola has done as far as roads is concern during the time he worked with Tinubu then people will accept with me that he is our best candidate in Osun for now. Please oyinlola leave Osun State alone we are tied of your deceit, enough is enough periods. I am from Odo-Otin Local Government Area and I can say it loud and clear that Oyinlola is a failure let us try Aregbesole.Osun people don’t allow anybody to use religion to deceive us ooo.

Insincerity from Oyin’s Face
written by Engr. Akano M. Ademola, April 02, 2007

Wait gentle men have you tried to look straight at Oyin’s face while talking to the people?. Please what do you normally see?. Honestly speaking I always see insincerity but I have not discussed it with anybody until this weekend when friend from Abuja asked me this above question. The guy said he always sees insincerity in Oyin’s face in fact I was short of words because we have never discussed it before.

My friend tried to justify this claim and again the same with my view of Oyin’s promises in 2003.

You can also hear this:Where is dualization of Gbongan/Okuku/Konta road?
Where is the aerodrome?
Where is the Central Bank?
Where is the Federal Secretariat?
Where is the free edecation when we buy everything after paying school fees?
Where is the State University after four years?

Did you notice one thing again that he used federal projects to campaign can’t he think of meaningful state projects. This man lack the required capabilities to move Osun state forward.

The differece is clear between Aregbesola and Oyin. Aregbesola is visionary while Oyinlola is not.

This is why people have resolved that, come April 14th, they are going to vote enmass for a change symbolised by Aregbesola.

PDP and Her Thugs.
written by Engr. Akano M. Ademola, April 12, 2007

Usually when an election is about to happen the incumbent government is more confortable than any other party in a democratic system. This is because it must have envisage the election challenges and give the people the best during its administration.

In Osun state and Nigeria as a whole PDP has failled and it is unconfortable any more. The president said “it is a do or die afairs” and true to his word he has done a lot to achieve this by wanting to ban Atiku at all cost he declear two days holiday not minding what it will cost our economy, expelling Ararume and decided not to presenting any candidate for governorship in Imo state, protect a rouge like Alao-Akala in Oyo state, promoting Ribadu to AIG, sending EFCC to Mimiko etc.

In Osun state PDP has been threating people not come out and vote if their are going to vote for any other party and not PDP is this the type people we want to lead us again. A party that is ready to kill those they intend to govern if they (people)decide not to vote for it. A party and people that are full of deceits and propagandas.

When you kill people today because they don’t want your candidate who will vote for you next time and this is why many people are leaving the party because people now know the party is more dangerious to them than any other party in the country.

All over Osun state today people want Aregbesola and they have done this to Oyinlola in 2003 why can’t Oyinlola remember that these same Osun citizens can call on him tomorrow for another thing instead of him resulting into killing of anybody that decided not to vote for him now.

I have listen to Oyin several times and I have found out that he did not love Osun state and her citizens but he should remember that only God make leaders and the voice of the people is the voice of God.

As at this coming election Aregbesola is the man and God will answer the prayers and yearnings of Osun state people.

written by adewale razaq, April 13, 2007

Gov Oyinlola promised to build a University of Osogbo when he campaigned for the post in 2003? but when he assumed office he began to find excuses for why a univeristy could not be built in Osogbo . and later along the way swallowed his words in a publication on politics by the Nigeria Tribune which goes thus :

Question ” Your critics said the university established by your administration was an afterthought. How true is this?
Answer That insinuation is false. It was part of our priority all along though it was at the bottom of the scale. And now, this administration has fully attended to it. ”
How can the construction of a standard state university be at the bottom scale of a government who really wants to establish a university at the end of her tenure (a duration of 4(four) years in office)… isn’t this priority an illusion , a fiction , a fallacy ….
people of osun state dont let us fold our arms and keep mute its time for a new beginning , a new era , a new turn around , a new government , a new osun state . vote wisely …. Aregbesola ni jooo

OYIN IS TIME FOR YOU TO LEAVE ABERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No time for randanranda in this state again look at this man heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnnnnn
when he was elected in 2003, he promised safe environment, revolution in the agriculture, pipe-borne water and many more. and he refused to delivered on all these counts. In education, he promised to re-absorb all the teachers sacked by Bisi Akande he did not.

Also, he said that he will opened up rural roads to enhance movement of agricultural products. my people he did not.he said he will invested in rural electrification to boost the state’s economy, nothing.

So on the university, my people of Osun state he want to use this university to win his vote in osun especially in Osogbo also he if we look at this plan we will realize that he did not like osogbo he take management courses to his own town where he know that management student are more plenty than science students please my people don’t let us wasted our time especially our future let us vote for someone that can capable, that can changed all this, even though like me i wish to school in my city. ma/sir please don’t forget that we are the leader of the tomorrow. oyin is time (Ileyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)

i just want to know when the post ume for uni osun will be.anyway we have no choice than to manage oyinlola for the main time.thanks

let us quote the bible
written by oluwaseun immanuel, July 26, 2007

we scientist discover that how you appear shows your manner.In the case of oyinlola, how he appears shows his manner.the bible says they that sows in tears shall reap in joy meanwhile aregbe has sows in tears therefore he is going to reap in everlasting joy.And the bible says that they that sows sparingly shall reap sparingly and they that sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully. No more democracy in nigeria and record shows that democracy is a trial in nigeria.

Oyinlola Baba isale awon Oleeee!!!!!!!!!!!

UNIOSUN AS A VOODOO

“You can fool all the people sometime
You can fool some people all the time
But you cannot fool all the people all the time”

All the while, I decided to keep mute on the foto finish called the University of Osun State touted and celebrated by the State Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola since last year. The celebration draws my melancholy because it is a theatre of absurd scripted and acted by the political a o merinjobas (meaning the political artful dodgers) who are out to deceive the unsuspecting people of Osun State.

But last week, I was invited to give a lecture by Rotary International, Osogbo and National Association of Osun State Students (NAOSS), Osun State College of Education, Ilesa Chapter pari passu and the quest for knowledge on topical issues demonstrated by the distinguished Rotarians who asked  me to speak on ‘The Media and Sustenance of This Nascent Democracy’ coupled with messages  and telephone calls from fans of this column compelled me to join an issue with Oyinlola’s government on the voodoo called UNIOSUN.

If you don’t know, let me quickly remind you that the creation of the university was intentionally shoddy, structurally illogical and technically imbalance and I will prove it.

In the first place, it was only the people of Osogbo cosmopolitan city that conceived the idea of having a university, for the reason that the ivory tower would jerk the population up and give the economy of the state capital a boost and when the former Governor Bisi Akande who ruled between 1999 and 2003 could not be forthcoming on the idea based on the relatively low revenue  base and poor allocation from the federal coffer, Osogbo people openly fraternised with this rival People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that drafted an unwilling candidate, Oyinlola into the governorship race. So, in order to win, the then newly-retired Brigadier General Oyinlola kept on promising every Tom, Dick and Harry without considering the economic implications.

So, by the time the ruling party won and the governor settled down in office, Oyinlola was confronted with the reality on ground. But as God would have it, the price of crude oil went up in the international market and the allocation of each state was reviewed upward, but there was a lot of commitments on ground: the governor himself wanted to buy a mansion in Ikoyi, Lagos, he has to smart up with some business interests abroad and that would require choice properties and some other things before he services the interests of his political jobber who facilitated his election or selection into the office.

It got to a time, the governor came up with the home truth that he could not establish this university and that drew the ire of Osogbo people which obviously manifested at the last Oroki Day which was crisis-ridden. Gradually, the Osogbo people were rebelling against Oyinlola who reneged his promise and that could cause a political death of some political gladiators of Osogbo extraction in the PDP. So, a prominent commissioner from the city went on his knees asking the governor to just pronounce the university even if he would not construct a single structure and in the process he burst into tears and drew emotion of His Excellency and that eventually led to the pronouncement of the UNIOSUN in the first place. So, the intention was not genuine, it was diabolical and shoddy.

In another development, the governor was confronted by disquiet in Ile-Ife, another powerful voting bloc in the state as a result of governorship ambition of Senator Iyiola Omisore. He woke up to another deception when  some people in Osogbo led by their leader, Alhaji Ajadi Badmus danced to the Bola Ige House at Okepupa-Abere to thank His Excellency. He was forced to conceive an idea of structure to convince people further but two interests must be taken into cognizance; one, the homefront, two, the political interest, especially the re-election bid.

So, the university has to take a multi-campus dimension as used during the creation of The Polytechnic, Ibadan where all political gladiators went away with a satellite campus each and Osogbo, the troublesome, entity must have eleven structures in the new arrangement that will comprise an administrative block, Senate building and facilities that would accommodate trado-medicine (of course, Osogbo people are synonymous with “agunmu and aporo epa ijebu”) and medicals because of LAUTECH and School of Nursing which are on ground.

Okuku, the governor’s home town would go with management courses and ten structures and the rest towns will have three structures each for a school or the other. Is this a university of a dream? Is this the best university you and I canvassed for as a collective heritage in the state? If not, then, why are we paying homage to ignorance?

I know that some would be hinging their argument on the calibre of people that formed the committee that worked out modality for the university, especially, a man like Professor Peter Okebukola, the immediate past Executive Secretary of National University Commission (NUC). Of course, I don’t dispute your argument, but I want you to find out why the same Okebukola ordered all universities with outreach and satellite campuses to close shops while he was calling shot at the NUC and what he said then. If I may recall, the don put up an argument that technically, the idea was wrong because it would defeat the mission of a university education. So, why partaking in the voodoo called UNIOSUN? The answer could be found in the case of a monumental fraud that characterized education vote in the last leg of Okebukola’s tenure at NUC. That case that flushed out Senator Adolphus Wabara out of the exalted seat of Senate presidency. So, technically the creation of UNIOSUN is imbalance.

With this, I hope you have been better informed that the governor and his power frick friends are only deceiving the people with their university bait and that is why I called it a voodoo.

What is voodoo? It is a religious practice in West Indies. The practice involves witchcraft and magic. Everything about voodoo is done in secrecy. The priests like Oyinlola is supreme and their commands are automatic laws. Any member of the sect that asks questions does so at his own risk. Dissension is a cheap compromise of personal security. It is the common belief of the priests that any explanation of their practices done to the people is an affront to whom they represent. So, the people of Osun State should acknowledge that this university is a voodoo, a fluke, a ruse and a fluke.

Oh! You want to know more? Ask the governor who has just expended millions of naira from our collective wealth to pick an award from his alma matter, the Buckingham University in the United Kingdom, whether  the university that honoured him is scattered all over the state? Ask him whether he was admitted before the structures of the great university were put in place like what will happen in September 2007 to UNIOSUN that has not been given placement in Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) as at the time of reading this piece?

Do you know why we are not courageous enough to ask questions? It is because of blind trust and agony of poverty. And you can see that the last ‘Open Forum,’ the propaganda network programme on OSBC radio and television was lifeless because the Chief Priest like a voodoo master was absent. Do you care to know why each question must be preceded with praise singing? Then, let us listen if Odunjo is now turning in his grave for the life drama of A O merinjoba in Osun State).

In his ‘Alawiye’  Odunjo, the literary giant revealed a lot, but ‘A O merin joba’ (we shall crown the elephant) is very instructive. In the story, the elephant aspires to be king at all cost like the second term syndrome of the governor. All the other animals see the ambition of the elephant as an avoidable risk, the elephant has been unnecessarily obsessed with naked power and can only be likened to a drunken bull in a China shop.

The animals know that if they tell the elephant that it is no longer wanted, then all of them might be dealt with (like stealing in the local governments would be stopped, contracts to cronies would be stopped, unfettered access to public fund would be curtailed and that could affect their expensive automobiles in town). They (animals) resolved to encourage the power frick elephant dubiously. A ditch was dug.
On that day of the fake coronation, the surface of the ditch was covered with beautiful dressings to deceive the undiscerning elephant so as to slip into the ditch, in unison, the animals sang

‘A o merin joba
Ewekun ewele (2ce)

And that was the last praise sing of the elephant.

How I wish these people in the corridor of power drop their choice cars at their various homes and start boarding commercial vehicles and listen to the yearnings of the masses, probably that would further give them the better pictorial representation of the condition of the people.

Eh! I do not say with my weak words that Oyinlola, like any other governorship candidates out there does not have a chance in the forthcoming elections, but I am only thinking in limbo that people may want to say: that this man promised us a full-fledged airport at Ido-Osun, double lane from Akoda to Orita Olaiya for nine months only to still be battling with it for three years despite the fact that it is a federal project, that this man promised us employment, only to start merry-gorounding, that this man  promised us water, only to start commissioning boreholes without water in the 21st century, that this man promised us that he would not draw salary but he ended up drawing rebate on all contracts. So, how do we trust him with this university bait that was splitted like a private nursery school?

You know what, the former Governor Bisi Akande was criticised because he sacked workers, but he built an unrivalled state secretariat that housed all ministries without borrowing a dime from the bank. Meanwhile, Oyinlola with more than N200 billion allocation plus oil windfall is worse because the money only reflected from the purses of the few.

Truly, “if a nagging wife does not try two husbands, she would not know the better one”
My greetings to His Excellency, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola over his recent award from his alma matter, Buckingham University, United Kingdom, Oga, we go wash am o.

CORRIGENDUM
It was written in the last edition of this column titled: Hypocrisy of OSUN INEC that Ribadu delivered a paper at the late Prof G.O Olawoyin lecture series. I want to tell you that Professor Olawoyin (SAN) is not late, I saw him, alive kicking. It was a printer’s devil at work and the error is regretted.
See you next week.
