Image
Owojori Nifemi A combined team of the local executives of Ife East Local Government, ward chairmen and the Southwest Official yesterday resisted an alleged probe of its state principal officers. The executives while reiterating their unblinking support for their state officials however condemned the act, describing it as a pathetic display of unacceptable leadership from the State, adding that such move is uncalled for especially at a time the party is facing pressing challenges. Their reaction according to them is sequel to the indictment of their Chairman Hon. Isaac Durojaye and the state officer, Hon Marcus Fadehan being circulated around the media space which they described as unjustifiable. In a communique Signed by 12 out of the 17 local Excos and all the 7 ward chairmen that constitutes the entire Local Government, including the Southwest officer Hon.

Author: Musefiu Kolawole His Excellency Adebisi Akande was Osun State Governor at the inception of the Fourth Republic. Unfortunately, there was Oyinlola gap, maybe legitimately at the first instance then crudely illegitimately but after a drawn judicial battle was so removed and so succeeded by Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who served for two terms. Despite the two sides of assessment of Ogbeni era in Osun, I would rather be objective and leave his overall testimonials to the public court but I would rather make use of Lagos State as a reference point where The Jagaban BAT, laid the developmental pillars and foundation of the today 'Eko ti ko baje' so also Pa Bisi Akande did here in Osun State. Likewise, BRF, Babatunde Raji Fasola and Governor Akinwunmi Ambode just like Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola continue with the building of the Lagos and Osun State respectively. His Excellency Rauf Aregbesola did his bits and electorally succeeded by our amiable Governor Isiaq Gboyega Oyetola who is ma

The Honourable Member representing Ife East State Constituency in the Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Olajide Adeyeye Martins has lauded the President Buhari led administration for valuing the inputs of the traditional rulers in tackling the security challenges currently facing the country, describing it as a wise move. Honourable Adeyeye stated this on Wednesday while featuring on "Oro Tonlo", a weekly Current Affairs programme on Orisun 89.5FM, Oke Itase Ile-Ife, Osun State.

"The move by the Federal Government under President Muhamadu Buhari to engage traditional rulers in addressing the insecurity situations in the country is a w

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-basi
