OPINION: HON. ROTIMI MAKINDE
Not long ago, I came up with a submission never to align with any of the governorship gladiators.I came to that conclusion based on my scientific research and observations on politics.
This I intend to maintain and extended to counselors selection. Who among the gladiators is not my party person, who among them would not recognize or want my courtship.I look forward to when the generalities of the people would also be fair to me in time of my need,rate me based on their conviction and based on my pedigree.
There is law of karma, lurking quietly around waiting to strike everyone. Everyone. With the same intensity they have treated their fellow men and women.
I believe and strongly believe that everything we do today to others intentionally will unfailingly return back to us sooner or later, greatly magnified.
Only today. I read on social media about a satanic propaganda on Alhaji Moshood Adeoti,the current SSG and a very likely contestant to the governorship seat of my dear State of Osun.
In as much as I tried to refrain myself from commenting on any of the gladiators but I can’t absorb the pains and likely consequences of the silence should we allow such spreading of hate speeches to continue in our party and in our society. With such barbarically spread of broadcast of such mischievous texts we may further drift ourselves into deep political extinction as a party.
Not with Adeoti and not with such a man who had sacrifice so many things to keep this party till this stage.
Let us be cautious please.
So sad In politics, Pull Him Down syndrome, PHD syndrome is even more profound with devastating consequences. We have not started, the coast is not even clear, we have major stream to cross, we are approaching a make or mar election come August 2018.
To re-position our party begins from getting our bearing from this forthcoming local government election, which may divide us further unless we do it right now.
The losers of this local elections may graduate into ”oppositions” ”critics” and some may even form â€œshadow government.â€ It must be fun to them as they may soon become experts in why things will never work, and why things should be done otherwise. They would be masters in antagonistic expectations.
They will become the friends and megaphones of the grumbling masses and started wooing discontent people to their sides and head towards the waiting hands of the opposition, basically people love noise makers and that is why good guys who canâ€™t make noise may never smell the corridors of power, unless he has a godfather or agents doing the ”leg-works” and ”mouth-works” for him.
But would it not be bad if we as a member of the same party APC constitute ourselves to nuisance value to ourselves and embarked on pull him down syndrome as we can see from a writer from Iwo the very home of Sheu .
Let no one further rebroadcast hate speech about Adeoti and not even on any of our contestants which includes Benedict Olugboyega Alabi,KRad and of course on those who are yet to declare their intentions.
The sky is big enough for all birds to fly.
God bless APC.
