It was Joy in Ibadan North Federal Constituency when Hon Idowu Lekan-Salami came to the rescue of the APC by taking up the responsibility of paying up the party office NEPA bill/light on debt owed since last year.
He also promised to be paying it every month, with the support of providing 50 litres of petrol every month for their generator use during meetings and office.
He bought a new PA System for the party. He has also volunteered to pay up the outstanding office rent.
This is coming after his meeting at the APC Ibadan North Local Government office with the leading executives of the Party, where he was approached to come to the Party’s rescue to support office efforts so to guide against their eviction from the building, restoration of light that has been disconnected since November 2019 and the spoilt PA system.
Ibadan LGA party office has been under intensive demand due to backlog of debt accrued from secretarial purposes amongst which is the office rent, NEPA bill, PA System for meetings, office staff running and many others. To this effect, several approach have been made and several letters written to Hon. Akinremi to come to their aid but he has redundantly refused to oblige them according to reports made available by anonymous party excecutive since his ” leader” Alhaji Sanusi has not given him the go-ahead.
Despite spending vast personal resources during the primaries season in 2019 that, was never held and not being compensated at all by the party, Hon. Idowu Lekan-Salami has taken it upon himself to continue to come to the rescue of the party in Ibadan North whenever he is called upon. With or without election, Idowu Lekan-Salami has decided to offer himself to the service of Ibadan North LGA to avoid the party been held in ransom and many believe it’s a welcome development at a period APC in Oyo state are in opposition.
Idowu Lekan- Salami whose father ,late Lekan Salami gave himself totally to 3SC and his Idowu is truly a son of his father by giving himself selflessly to the people of Ibadan North in particular, ibadan development path and the APC in general.
This development did not go down well with Ibadan North House of Representatives member, Hon Musiliu Akinremi and his self-acclaimed leader, Alhaji Sanusi as they are now seeking to disrupt the flow of the constituency by asking the Chairperson, Alhaja Tinu Adigun, to return and refuse Idowu Lekan-Salami’s gesture to support the party.
The leadership is at the moment frowning at the unlikely stupidity displayed by one of them who claimed to be in charge of Akinremi’s fate and the others are not ready to have it play.
Many are already raising dust on the matter, as party members are opposed to the act of refusing Idowu Lekan-Salami’s support. This political play seems to all as an act void of wisdom.
However, Idowu Lekan-Salami has vowed to serve the people of Ibadan North LGA and to play by the rules as duty calls.
