Amosun Desperate Conspiracy (ADC): The Path To Political Ditch In Ogun By Solomon Raji



One of the most instructive postulations of a celebrated political philosopher and leading thinker, Socrates, is that,” A good leader must recognize problem before it becomes an emergency”.

A critical evaluation of the above thought simply implies that majority of political leaders around the world, especially in the third world countries, who ended up in irredeemable political oblivion were those with spontaneous response to issues without recourse to proper planning and empirical analysis of situation as a guide to logical conclusion and subsequent decision.

In line with this thought of Socrates, the former Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, is one of the leaders with absence of requisite temperament to recognize problem before it becomes an emergency, he is a man with fire brigade approach out of self aggrandizement and egocentric tendencies.

Suffering from chronic self-delusion, Ibikunle Amosun, completely failed to realize the dwindling trend of his political influence and popularity in Ogun State at the tail end of his administration in 2019. Unfortunately, that problem eventually became a serious emergency situation for him now.

Going into historical allusion, it can be safely conclude that Amosun’s draconian attributes solely responsible for the present woes that befell his once virile and vibrant political structure and formidable family.

He started this journey of no return with his unrepentant hostility against his estranged friend and incumbent Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, who wanted to secure a senate ticket in the first place but met a stiff resistance to his ambition from Amosun, and the rest became history.

Thereafter, instead of addressing the pressing issues about his political future with decorum and logic, and commence aggressive mobilization towards 2023, for his party, the APC, Amosun delved into another opaque path of political misadventure.

The Owu-born Chartered Accountant was adamant in promoting his vindictive political agenda without recourse to critical reasoning and realities of political climate in Ogun State.

Because the former Ogun State Governor now became more vulnerable after losing billions of naira on his failed presidential ambitions, he is gradually becoming a mere utopian out of desperation, as he settled for a once recalcitrant ally, Barr. Biyi Otegbeye as an instrument of vendetta.

In truth and indeed, Amosun’s “choice” of ADC is nothing but a conspiracy to stop Prince Dapo Abiodun’s reelection on the basis of myopic selfish tendencies, and not on the prism of competence or performance.

The level of maturity and civility in which Prince Dapo Abiodun controls the affairs of the State and his consistency in the quest of transformation and speedy development have endeared the governor to the majority of the electorate.

The campaign of calumny and cheap propaganda adopted by Amosun and his docile stooges in ADC against the administration of Prince Dapo Abiodun is clearly known to the people and obviously can not change the resolve of the people of the State to return their Governor.

Every individual in the gateway state detests the years of suffocating political jackboots of Ibikunle Amosun and it’s attendant turmoil across the State.

From all indications and feedbacks from the Ogun electorate and political stakeholders alike, Amosun and his cohorts are traveling alone, there is no doubt that his present move is nothing but efforts in futility, it is therefore, incontestable that ” Amosun Desperate Conspiracy”(ADC) is bound to end up in unimaginable ditch and pathetic oblivion.
