Dapo Abiodun: How sterling performance defies venom of calumny

 

 

 

 

The brewing smear campaign against the incumbent Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, by drowning politicians in the State, led by the former Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, is not in anyway strange to every discerning individual in the state and beyond, in fact, it is even expected, going by the enviable performance of the Governor and the cynic nature of his predecessor.

This war of attrition that started since the very moment Dapo Abiodun indicated interest to change the trend of despotic governance in Ogun State by vying for governorship on the platform of APC continued rather tirelessly, as the king of the manor remains blindfolded by inordinate ambition of total dominance.

The onslaught against Governor Abiodun was later intensified when his dynamic leadership became manifested in the steady and progressive manner he is transforming the state from all fronts, especially in the area of infrastructure and human capital development, despite the enormity of deficit left behind by his predecessor.

Obviously, this revolutionary change of order to the admiration of many in the State, especially the downtrodden, who had been callously oppressed by the suffocating civilian junta superinteded by Ibikunle Amosun became a nightmare for the former Governor and his cohorts, hence, the move to bring the incumbent Governor down by all possible means.

That Amosun and his co-travellers have thrown decency and Omoluabi ethos into the dustbin is no more a news, they have practically become satanic and dangerously desperate, in their fruitless efforts to take over mantle of leadership by force in order to continue with their oppression.

It is shameful that Amosun and his foot soldiers could come this low after their failed attempts to stop the Governor in the countdown to 2019 gubernatorial election in the State, and the level of global embarrassment they brought to the State during campaigns.

Sincerely, this paradigm shift in the pattern of development and growth in all strata of the State and the people-oriented leadership entrenched by Dapo Abiodun in Ogun State will not stop, no matter the degree of propaganda embarked upon by Ibikunle Amosun and his docile team.

It is quite interesting now that majority of Ogun Citizens are aware of the antics of the former Governor to impose a rubber stamp on the State and rule by proxy, which informed his cat race to control the party and the political structure.

While it is certain that many Nigerians are also aware of the intricacies of cold war in the political space of Ogun State, spearheaded by Senator Ibikunle Amosun and the determination of the people in the State to follow the path of honour and developmental leadership as against autocracy and deception, it is therefore instructive to tell Amosun and his ‘boys’ to listen to the evergreen warning of Amil Cabral:

“Hide nothing from the masses of our people. Tell no lies. Expose lies wherever they are told.

“Mask no difficulties, mistakes, failures. Claim no easy victories”.

FAKE NEWS: SCOTT TOMMEY DEBUNKS ARREST RUMOUR

 

 

But in an era when utter falsehood can be easily manipulated and dressed in a robe of credibility, fifth columnists should not be given an opportunity to have a field day while flying a kite bearing fake news.

 

 

 

 

Consequently, through his Media Adviser, Peter Okechukwu, Scott Tommey, the Group Managing Director of Osmoserve Group, has debunked the false claim that he has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja.

 

 

 

Tommey, who has been in business for well over two decades without any scuffle with government authorities, described the story as a “mere rumour concocted from a diseased soul needing urgent surgical attention.”

“In over twenty years of running a business that has grown to become one of the most sought after groups in Nigeria, I have never been involved in any act that sabotages the economy or anything that has the tendency to tarnish my hard earned image.
We place premium value on transparency and accountability in all my businesses. So that story should be discountenanced and not be dignified with any mileage,” Tommey said in a statement made available to TheCapital.

Debunking the story as utter lies, Peter Okechukwu, the Special Adviser on Media and Communication to Osmoserve, “This is calling on unsuspecting public to be wary of their shenanigans, as we also wish to sound a note of warning to all those who have made it their pastime to sponsor malicious write-ups, tweets and online publications against Osmoserve Global and our MD, Mr Scott Tommey, that their day of reckoning is not far away,” Okechukwu expressed
