AMOLA DIXON HAS PLAYED HIS PART BUT THIS IS POLITICS


I came across a banter recently where a guy requested to be directed for a DNA test so as to confirm his authentic biological father to which a man replied to him that the best means to confirm that is to venture into Politics and contest for an elective position. As much as this seems light it's as well the reality in our own style of Politics in Nigeria.

A Politician in Nigeria is in the public glare beyond what is obtainable in other systems so when a Politician along with those that know him inside-out come across strange attributes about him it's NEVER strange because this is NIGERIA.

Honourable Amola Abiodun Dixon is a typical Politician from Modakeke and gracefully is the immediate former Chairman of Ife East Central LCDA;this is a man who believes in dint hardwork and Social Engineering which are core elements of grassroot politics. He started as an ambitious young man with Progressive ideals in the agrarian community, Modakeke, where started his basic and post-basic education.

His testimonials as Ife East Central LCDA Chairman to all keen followers in Modakeke and it's environs sincerely is laudable by making considerable imparts in all spheres of Governance while his loyalty to all strata of leaders is unquestionable.

Unfortunately, it was a general and public knowledge that while he held fort as the Ife East Central LCDA Chairman what came the LCDA got monthly to cater for the Government business was always in the negative to the extent that the Governor,His Excellency Isiaq Gboyega Oyetola, intervened severally before we could duly pay the Workers' salaries which is a priorities set as benchmark by the Governor and Honourable Amola.

Notwithstanding,below are the much Capital Projects Honourable Amola Dixon facilitated among others:

Construction of some exits road at Olorunsogo Market;

Construction of Gate House at the LG Secretariat;

Desilting of drainage in the Community;

Construction of a bridge at Ben Adeyemi Road;

Sending of the indegenes to Ada for professional training and development;

Grading of the existing roads within the community;

Construction of new road at Irebami;

Construction of a bridge at Okebode;

Removal of century rock at Barale Area;

Facilitated the increase of the Three (3) wards in Modakeke since 1976 to making ten (10) wards in 2017 which is in use till today;

Increase in casual wokers stipend from five thousand to Ten thousand;

Secured the Federal Republic of Nigeria approval of the use of Urban Day  Motor Park & stalls;

Construction of a bridge at Idowu Olugbenga; and

Establishment of Oba Adedoyin Periodic Market along Ondo Rd, MODAKEKE;

Nevertheless, the few dissenting opinion on Honourable Amola performance as the Chairman of Ife East Central LCDA wasn't unexpected for the fact that the propagators of such are either ignorant who don't give a damn on the laudable Governance strides witnessed during his tenure as well the height of their ambitions.

Honourable Amola makes as his Hallmarks sound community relations and open door policies but if a group fails to grab in details the credentials of his sterling performance for the period he chaired the LCDA, this may be deliberate effort to create confusion. 

This is a man who gears and tailors his actions and inactions both outside Government and while he was officially in charge of the LCDA towards boosting the electoral success of the party, APC.

  1. Ordinarily, I wouldn't have given this opinion a dignity of reply, but I will do, in order to put the writer off a wrong track, as silence could mean a lot, if and when you don't know what to say.
    I'm so sure the writer of this prejudiced and foul-crying opinion is either ignorant, seeking cheap and watery favour, absurd loyalty, or a combination of the three.

    Hon. Dixon Amola didn't literally failed while holding political office, he failed all-wise.

    I'm John Oyebanji, and I do not shy from debating facts publicly or privately.


    N.B: The opinion writer is well-known to me, and obviously one of our egbons.

  2. Well, I served with him and I say that he's a total and colossal failure! The facts are before the public and I will advise you to seek the truth before insulting the collective sensibility of the whole Modakeke community with monumental lies that cannot stand the test of time.
