Ogun 2019: Akinlade indicts Amosun, says there is ‘hopelessness’ everywhere

Governor Ibikunle Amosun preferred governorship candidate, Hon. Abdulkabir Akinlade on Friday couldn’t help indicting his godfather of being unable to uplift residents of Ogun state significantly.

The governor, he said, was leaving the state hopeless for the next administration.

He lamented all he saw during his campaign tour of 211wards out of the 236 wards in the state was “hopelessness of people.”

Akinlade, who is the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) gubernatorial candidate, a party largely enjoying steady support from Amosun at the expense of the the All Progressives Congress (APC), described the people’s situation as that of “hopelessness.”

The House of Representatives member representing Yewa South and Ipokia Federal Constituency made the comment while fielding questions at the just- concluded BBC Yoruba gubernatorial debate at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library(OOPL), Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The APM candidate, who was aide to Amosun on Revenue matters during his first term in office, made the comment in Yoruba to the consternation of the audience at the debate considering his affinity with Amosun and his administration in the last seven years and eight months.

“I have covered 211 wards in Ogun state and have seen the hopelessness of people,” Akinlade said.

Another gubernatorial candidate at the debate, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka of the African Democratic Congress(ADC) lauded Akinlade for speaking the truth.

Isiaka noted that on his part, he has covered the whole 236 wards about four times since 2011 and was conversant with the hopelessness of the people in the state.

This, he said, formed his quest for the governorship seat come March 2 to enable him change the narrative of the people’s situation.
