EKITI POLITICS: Between Ayo Fayose & Abimbola Olawunmi, The Evil Men Do.

Ayodele Ifayose.
News broke a few days ago of how the Governor of Ekiti State and already failed presidential aspirant under the platform of the People Democratic Party, PDP, Ayodele Ifayose and a former member of the PDP in Ekiti State, now with the All Progressive Congress, APC, Mrs. Abimbola Olawumi Olajumoke-Adeniyi, which led to the arrest and subsequent remand in prison of the later over issues related to traffic offence, assault on a Police Officer and a staff of Ekiti State Traffic Management Agency.

The issue between the governor and his former political ally didn’t start today, but dates back to 2015 after Fayose took the oath of office as governor of Ekiti State.

Mrs Abimbola Olawumi Olajumoke-Adeniyi was part of tools Ayo Ifayose used to work against the APC during the governorship elections in the state and against the former governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.

It is on record that in recent times, if the governor sees you as a threat in Ekiti State, he will find ways of pushing you out of the circle of things in the state and would use all the machineries of government to make sure your image is tainted, so much so that he will see that you don’t campaign and win an election in the state.

Olawunmi it was that Ayo Ifayose use to fight the likes of Tope Aluko and another Ekiti politician known as BAFEM including others seen as threats to the political strength of the governor
Abimbola Adeniyi.
Trouble began for Olawunmi when after she joined the media team of the governor and wasn’t paid a dime in over one year, she protested and in his character not to reward those who work for him, Fayose started blackmailing her with accusation of being gossiped with amongst politicians in Ekiti and had her removed from the government house and the press crew.

When she dumped the PDP, she joined the APC in the state and declared to run for the office of the Chairman, Irepodun-Ifelodun Iocal Government Area and seeing that she has followers and the popularity to withstand any of his boys in the Local Government elections, the governor had to find a way to set her up with traffic offence and assault.

We are told that Olawunmi also fallout with the governors Special Assistant on Social Media, Lere Olayinka who is the leader of the governors media team in Ekiti.

Ayo Fayose in his bid to get at her, had her house demolished and has her mother’s house marked for demolition during the ongoing reconstruction of some part of Ekiti State.

It will be recalled that the governor is fighting everyone and everybody he perceives an opposing figure in his bid to keep hold on to Ekiti and can go to any length to make sure that his political enemies are put down, but there are people he in the same Ekiti who will trash him when the time is ripe, for he cannot continue to treat Ekiti and her most educated indigenes like second class in the affairs of the state for too long.
