Lagos APC leader, Adeniji-Adele, trades insult with Ogun Governor

Ademola Adeniji-Adele,

A leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos, Ademola Adeniji-Adele, has described the Ogun state Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, as a lair based on the governor’s claims on a farm in Ogun State.

Mr. Amosun, had while accusing his predecessor, Gbenga Daniel, of corruption, said the latter sold the state’s Apoje Farms Limited to Mr. Adeniji-Adele for peanuts.

“When they came into power, the farmlands were over 60. When we came in, it remained only five. They are rogues, thieves and bastards, God will punish them all,” Mr. Amosun said of Mr. Daniel and his backers.

In an open response to the governor via a letter dated September 19, Mr. Adeniji-Adele said his decision to respond was to clarify the governor’s ‘falsehood.’

“I had wished you had left me out of your battle with Governor Daniel but you had to drag me in to lend credence to the falsehood you were peddling,” the Lagos politician said.

Mr. Adeniji-Adele, a former commissioner in Lagos State, said he met with Mr. Amosun “on at least two occasions on the issue of Apoje Farms.

“On those occasions I explained to you and your aides that the transactions was a concession not a sale.

“The ‘paltry sum’ you mentioned was a signature bonus of N10 million.”

The Lagos politician, who is in the same party with Mr. Amosun, said his firm was “to bring in additional investment into the project. As at the time you illegally and unceremoniously kicked us out of the Farm we had invested well over N200 million in Nursery (15 hectares), a first phase of transplanting (1,500 hectares), and so many supporting infrastructure including irrigation”.

Mr. Adeniji-Adele said he has since gone to court to court to challenge the Ogun governor’s decision to cancel the transaction.

“Of course I took the only option left for me and went to court and I will continue to pursue this course of action,” he said. “I reject the curse you vented at the occasion and pray for God to forgive you for the loss of lives your actions have caused the people of Ogun State and the untold hardship you have caused the people of your state.”

He accused Mr. Amosun of vendetta in running Ogun state, a situation which he said has split “our party down the middle and I hope you change your ways and bring the party together in the remaining months of your tenure”

        PURE APC IS ISSUE———————THAT IS WHY EVERY STATE IN THE SOURTH WEST IS YEARNING FOR A DIVORECE WITH THE PARTY OF THE JANJAWEEDS

    • TRUTH MASTER

      You lack knowledge and understanding!

    Politics of vendetta is the key attribute of Amosun-led government. The plantation has been lying unproductive for quite some years because the state didn’t have what it takes to run such venture. Concessioning has never been a crime and PPP is one of the key drivers of improving the state’s economy but it’s pity that the Governor refused to see that. The state today is SIA Plc with immediate family members as largest shareholders. The three hobbies of Amosun are lies, lies and lies.

    “Lagos APC leader trades INSULTS With Governor of Ogun”!

    The keyword there is ‘INSULT’. Not even trade blame!
    One thing I have not failed to notice is APC members propensity to lie and abuse! Any decent person will hav noticed that gutter language has been adopted as the ‘consensus’ language by them and their violent Internet rats.
    Adeniji called a fellow APC govnr a LIAR!
    The Guvnr Amosun called others ‘rogues, thieves & Bastards’!
    Bastards? How can high ranking officials trade insults like this??
    Haba! Even though APC is generally accepted to mean Angry-Peoples-Club, do they have to over do it to live up to this ignoble name??
    NawaooO!

    it is far better to trade insults on newspaper pages than to assasinate one another which was the hallmark of the other political party (questions are still being asked on the deaths of Funso Williams, Bola Ige etc)

    • Es3

      If you missed it before, please note that Funso Williams was killied by the leadership of today’s APC, and not PDP!!!

  • Ay

    This is how government should be run. Am very happy with Amosun for not running a paddy paddy government. Even if he never comes back, posterity will judge him as someone who was hated because he refused to play the chop i chop politics.

    Olusegun Aremu, e ku igburo ile. Iku tin pa ojugba eni owe nin paa funni. This is why you must keep kuwayet for the remaining part of your life instead of making trouble here and there as you are known for. Agba tinde sir.

      You may even die before him. That is the irony of death.

    rip obasanjo…you have done your worst…

    Good one..But he was coronated on December 6, 1980, not NOVEMBER 1980!

    Excellent summary of the life of Kabiyesi, the Ooni of Ifeland. To ordinary Ife man or woman and those close to the Ooni, he is an extremely generous man with exceptional interpersonal relationship. He leaves behind a vacuum that will be difficult to fill.

  • Abidilagungun

    if ooni invited you ten days ago not ten days before he died, you must have met his ghost, because, sugbon, he died more than ten days before you visited the chiefs in condolence. ebora owu!
