Ogun state governor is said to have been enraged over the bashes and jabs he received from the people of Ogun state during a radio programme .
A private radio station on Wednesday had featured a Pro-Dapo Abiodun to defend the governor , his deputy, Noimot Salako-Oyedele and the speaker of the state house of assembly,Olakunle Oluomo’s foreign trips .
But, unfortunately , the defence turned awry as many listeners who were already bottled with anger ventilated their displeasure on the politician.
The content of the programme was too harsh that some officials of the state government reported the situation to the governor who demanded that the recording of the programme be sent to him .
He was reportedly said to have cut short his holiday and decided to jet back to the state .
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the governor might touch the ground on Thursday morning following the hostile reaction of the people of the state .
PLATFORM TIMES further observed that many Ogun residents considered the action as too daring and insensitive by the governor and his deputy .
Deputy Governor was said to said to have left few days before her boss left the state for the UK.
It was gathered that Deputy governor jetted out having observed the body language and heard that she was not going to be handed over the power to by her boss .
Further findings showed that there are few members of the cabinet who are cabal in the government that cut the shot of the government both in governor’s presence and absence .
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the Secretary to the State government Tokunbo Talabi and Commissioner for Finance ,Dapo Okubadejo were the leaders of the cabal while the likes of Chief of Staff, Salisu Shuaib and Special Adviser to the governor on Political matters , Tunji Egbetokun were members of the cabal .
Meanwhile , the guest analyst who featured on the radio programme when the defence became too tough for him recommended some Commissioners including Commissioner for Information , Waheed Odusile for sacking .
According to him, the Commissioners were not only incompetent ,they have also constituted image problem for the governor .
There is however anxiety in the cabinet as the governor had demanded to listen to the tape where he was bashed and recommendation of sacking of some Commissioners were made .
Baring any last minute change of mind , the governor would be in Abeokuta , the state capital on Thursday .
PLATFORM TIMES observed that many Ogun residents were not happy with the action of the governor and to worsen the situation majority of the roads have become death traps .
