BREAKING: Ekiti Agog As Honourable Ayodele Olugbenga Secures APC National Appointment

Published

on

It was a breathtaking and colourful ceremony last Saturday when the people of Ijesha-Isu community in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State rolled out their drums to celebrate their illustrious son, Hon. Ayodele Olugbenga, a retired general in the Nigeria Army, who added another feather to his cap.…CONTINUE READING

It is no longer news that the retired general was recently appointed by the All Progressives Congress as its National Director of Grassroots Mobilization and Administration.

In such moment of celebration, little or no attention was given to the circumstances surrounding the appointment of Hon. Ayodele Olugbenga.

It is also odd that women from some of the communities who stripped naked a few weeks earlier to protest and curse using pseudonyms which every discerning minds knew were directed at Hon. Olugbenga for thwarting their freedom to elect a president of their choice suddenly became part of the celebration.

Nobody bothered about the blood that was shed, individuals who were victims of violent attacks, or other atrocities that were committed in communities like Itapaji, Ara, Odo-Ore, Ayedu, and Oye-Ayedun, to mention a few, which reliable sources claimed were the handiwork of thugs recruited and sponsored by Hon. Ayodele Olugbenga to ensure that that President Muhammadu Buhari won his second term elections in those places.

It is also a huge surprise that in such moments of wild celebration, no questions were asked about the vehicles conveying sensitive electoral materials that were set ablaze in opposition strongholds by thugs who are on the payroll of Hon. Ayodele Olugbenga because the incumbent president, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retired), lost in those communities.

In barely nine years of his membership of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Hon. Ayodele Olugbenga has held two very strategic positions in the party.

Until his recent national appointment, he served as the Grassroots Mobilization Director of the Ekiti State chapter of the party.

With the meteoric rise of Hon. Ayodele Olugbenga in the ruling political party, it would be okay to conclude that the Nigerian political arena is one for individuals who are notorious for brute force, violence, and those with the financial means, connections, and capacity to commit atrocities without repercussions.

While the aim of political parties is, no doubt, to win political powers, it leaves a sour taste in the mouth of well-meaning Nigerians and indeed, wrong signals are sent to civilised nations with deeply entrenched democratic principles that Nigeria is not yet ready for democracy when individuals who should face penal sanctions by the justice system for electoral offences are rewarded with high political offices.
