The Okun Youth for Good Governance (OYGG) has frowned at the campaign carnival organised by the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Honorable Kolawole Matthew, to celebrate the outgoing governor of the state and the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Alhaji Yahaya Bello and his runningmate, Mr Edward Onoja, describing it as a shameful dance of betrayal of the Okun people.
The good governance group said the Speaker’s action manifests a desperate effort of a puppet struggling hard to satisfy the yearnings of his gods.
The action of the Speaker, according to the OYGG, is to cover failures in his responsibilities as the head of the legislative arm, whose core duty is to checkmate the excesses of the governor.
The OYGG said it found the weekend carnival as embarrassing, insidious and an attempt to mock the suffering Kogites and celebrate the untold hardship met out to the masses by the New Direction government as superintended over by the failed and unpopular Governor Yahaya Bello.
It is worthy of note that Kolawole has failed in his capacity as the speaker of the state assembly haven turned himself into an errand boy of the Governor and a lapdog to Edward Onoja.
Kolawole, who in recent times, failed to attract any meaningful and life touching project to his immediate constituency is only good at playing to the whims and caprices of GYB/CEDO like they hold the mandate freely given to him by the good people of Kabba/Bunu Constituency.
Kolawole, haven seen the hand writing on the wall crystal clear like the biblical “mene mene taken ufasin” that a supposed political junior of his is about to be pronounced the APC political leader of Kaba-Bunu LGA where he (Kolawole) hails from—had to put up a desperate show of shame like a puppet who has fallen down to pecking order to impress his puppeteers in Lugard house to safe himself of the looming political embarrassment.
As a pro-peoples group, the Okun Youth for Good Governance calls on the speaker to put his tail in-between his legs and apologize profusely to the good people of Kaba-Bunu by extension Kogites at large for his failures.
