APC Ward Congress: Omodewu’s Conspicuous Presence Vs Make-Believe Presence of Paperweight Politicians

Newscarrier 2 years ads banner

There is time for everything in politics. Time to mobilize is different from time for a meeting, time to follow the directive of the party for active participation is not the same as time for a jamboree.

Yesterday was widely believed to be a time for active involvement in the electioneering process by the progressive members for ward Congress as directed by All Progressive Congress National Caretaker Committee led by Governor Mai Mala Buni.

Our attention has been drawn to an unprofessional news report from a media organisation. The paper published that two-term honourable commissioner Isaac Ajiboye Omodewu was conspicuously absent at the Saturday APC Ward Congresses in Itesiwaju LGA.

There is a popular saying that “he that knows not, and does not know he knows not, is a fool”.
In the intellectual world, learning is a cure that saves ignorants from what they know not. Hence the need to enlighten them more.

Let it be stated unequivocally stated that Honourable Ajiboye Omodewu was present yesterday (31st of July, 2021) at the ward Congress, which had in attendance party stakeholders and members of Ward 09, Otu in Itesiwaju Local Government Area, Oyo State (evidently confirmed by party faithful and post released via Omodewu Konnect Facebook page)
It is laughable to see a crook report glaringly malicious claiming “Hon. Ajiboye Omodewu is conspicuously absent”. As earlier mentioned, ignorance is saved by learning to know that Honourable Ajiboye Omodewu came into his hometown the previous night to the scheduled ward Congress (30th of July, 2021) and was present at the venue 9:25 am on the Congress day (31st of July, 2021). To clear all doubt, a pictorial picture and motion pictures of his presence and the echo of his name hailed by party faithful, well-wishers were taken. As a way to show intellectualism, amateur videos which is a raw file showing the presence of the crowd and security personnel validate the presence of the Former Commissioner for Lands and Housing Oyo State.
Having said this, that is not a surprise to us seeing an uninformed media team who came in the afternoon after the Congress has been concluded claiming Hon. Ajiboye Omodewu was absent.

Intellectuals and party faithful as we drop our pen, it’s important we ask them to answer these questions or rather leave till they are skilled enough to do their investigative journalism with these questions;

1. Where are the pictorial view and motion pictures of the Congress being held monitored by the self-acclaimed media team?

2. Who are the returning officers of the Congress which had in absence Hon. Ajiboye Omodewu after the Congress organised by the recognised returning officers and being observed by Independent National Electoral Commission Officials, Security agencies (Nigeria Police Force, Civil Defence, State Security) and observers was held?

3. A pictorial picture of the duly signed result and report of the claimed Congress observed by them (having the official signatures of All Progressive Congress recognised ward congress returning officers, security personnel of NPF, NSCDC, State Security Service, INEC Officials)?

Honourable Ajiboye Omodewu and his media team have core knowledge of the pillars of democracy and will advise freedom of thought should be put in journalism for subsequent publication by the team.

Conclusively, it is pertinent to advise paperweight politicians who are still yet to recover from the political tsunami they got yesterday from the formidable wave of the unmanipulative stakeholders and members in yesterday’s ward Congress in Itesiwaju Local Government, Oyo State; especially at ward 08 and ward 09 to detest from such acts and face governance coupled with party loyalty politics as 2023 approaches it’s evidently stated by the National Caretaker Committee that harmonizing the party is the objective of all loyal progressive members.
A Political jamboree and afternoon tour should not be misconstrued with an electioneering process.
