The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state on Special Duties, Dr. Doyin Odebowale has Accused leaders of Afenifere (Dr. Joel Odumakin) and Oodua Peoples Congress (Chief Gani Adams) of Being largly responsible for the leadership Backwardness and Underdevelopment in Southwest Nigeria.
He said this while Speaking at the Inauguration of New Leaders of the National Association of Ondo State Students (NAOSS), held today at Babafunke Ajasin Hall, in the state Ministry of Women Affairs Complex. He also Accused the student audience of contributing to the Problems of the society, by sharing awards and celebrating criminals, impostors and opportunists in Nigerian leadership.
He said in his words: “Gani Adams is a Carpenter who metamorphosed to a businessman, in the name of thuggery. Yinka Odumakin has never done any other thing in his life, apart from being a reporter in Punch Newspaper at a time. These are celebrated frauds in the society, who parade themselves and Speak as Yoruba leaders without consulting the people they claim to lead in decision making”
He posited further by condemning the 2014 National Conference, by saying;
“they gathered themselves together and shared billions of tax payers money, all in the name of National conference. And they expect people like us, who don’t have any input in their discussion to accept the Report. These are the Lilliputians that our society celebrate today”.
Again, in an indirect insult on the Paramount ruler of Arigidi Akoko in Ondo State. Oba Dr. Yisa Abu Olanipekun, the Zaki of Arigidi. Adebowale also refer to his title, ‘Zaki’ as a Fulani name, saying he is not likely to be from Ondo state.
According to Akinyemi Doyinsola, who recorded and reported the event to Nigerian Cable News, the Governor’s aid was tough on the students. Blaming them for not being watch dogs to governments at all levels.
