The Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress in Ogun State in the last election, Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka, said, it has been uncovered how the Lagos West Senator, Solomon Olamilekan Adeola engaged in moneybag politics before winning the elections in 2015 and 2019.
Isiaka popularly called GNI said the Lagos politician has brought polluted politics of money-inducerment.he played in Lagos to Ogun state .
He however called on the general public to ignore the allegation levelled against him.
Senator Adeola was reported to have described Isaika as a betrayer who is always after his interest.
But, taking him up on the allegation, Isiaka in a statement by his media office, alleged that the two term Senator of the Lagos West “always drive-round of the environment few days to elections, share money to critical sectors and victory is secured”.
Isiaka who had just declared his intention to contest for the Ogun West Senatorial seat, accused the kingmakers in Alimosho Local Government of assisting the Lagos West Senator in getting the party’s ticket.
He said “We also understand that he is not used to rigorous political engagements and campaigns as it were, hence the verbal carelessness.
” The nature of his Lagos West politics is such that heavy monies are given to the Alimosho kingmakers who do the soft work of getting him the endorsement. Once the ticket is secured, he only does one or two days of drive-round of the environment few days to elections, share money to critical sectors and victory is secured”.
Isaika stated that the Lagos West Senator had used financial inducement to hijack the party structure in Ogun West.
“Adeola is attempting to run the above model in the Ogun West senatorial district with the extravagant financial/material inducement and compromise of party structures, social structures, educational institutions, traditional institutions and very recently, religious institutions all in Yewaland.
” You can fool some people some of the times but you cannot fool all the people all of the times. For the umpteenth time, the immoderate ambition of Adeola to annex Ogun West senate (as a first step in his repugnant gubernatorial pursuit) is an ABBERATION and insult to the collective sensibilities of Yewa-Awori people.
“For a serving Lagos senator to be desperately pursuing to hold an Ogun State senatorial ticket concurrently is not only the height of greed but an action that affronts legality, assaults constitutionality and morally reprehensible”.
Adeola in his defence said he was used to playing smart politics.
Adeola popularly called Yayi explained that he was able to return in different elective positions in Lagos State because he was good to his people.
He said “I do not want to join in that kind of debate, i do not know what he meant by trying to lure or bribe anybody. In politics, there is no bribing, everybody try to play smart in politics, so if he is using that word, i will say it is not right.
