‘Call Your Commissioner To Order’, Oyetola’s Aide Tells Governor Adeleke



… Decries Incessant Attacks On The Minister

By Rafiu Agboola, Osogbo

Honourable Aremo Taofeek Adegboyega Lateef, the Special Adviser to former Governor Gboyega Oyetola on Youth and Sports, has called on Governor Ademola Adeleke to call his Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Oluomo Kolapo Alimi to order, saying the governor should tell Alimi to desist from attacking his principal, Alhaji Adegboyega Oyetola.

According to Oyetola’s aide, Alimi’s needless utterances and outbursts are unbecoming of the office of a Commissioner in the _’State of the Virtuous.’

Lateef made this known while fielding questions questions from journalists in Osogbo, Osun State capital, on Wednesday.

According to him, “As a Yoruba and an Omoluabi, it’s part of our tradition and culture to always respect, in every way, anybody who’s your senior in age, not to talk of position. How on earth will someone call Oyetola an ingrate or a confused Governor? At least, Osun people have now seen the difference.

“No doubt, you have every right to be embittered about your exclusion from his cabinet more than six year ago. Still, it does not worth throwing decorum into the wind like you have been doing with your utterances.

“While Nigerians are not moved by the dummy Alimi is selling to the public on behalf of his principal, it is in his best interest to desist from his incessant attacks on our leader, the current Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola.

“The government should rather face what it’s elected to do instead of castigating the past administration. This is nothing but an act of vendetta.

“We expect Alimi as the mouthpiece of the government to feed the people with messages of hope, that Osun government is planning to make life more meaningful to the people of the state.

“It will be better for the government’s spokesperson to focus on informing the public about its efforts in fighting the deepening insecurity, poor performance of students in Osun government schools and hardship affecting the mass of the people in the state despite the Federal Government’s massive interventions than become obsessed with heaping blames of its incompetence and failure on Honourable Minister Gboyega Oyetola”.
