Things appear to be on the other side for this female top member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State.
Flashback to the events leading to the 2019 general elections, the woman was reported to have played a prominent role organizing the female folk including market women, traders, artisans and even corporate women to vote for the APC both at the state and at the federal levels.
She allegedly did this expecting a pay back if the party eventually won the election.
Of course, the APC won in Lagos, but it appeared the woman did not get what she bargained for as she had been reportedly schemed out of relevance in the center of excellence despite the office she is occupying in the party.
However, sources within the party in Lagos State revealed that the woman, who used to be a lawmaker is now in a serious debt and that things are no longer at ease with her.
We were reliably informed that the woman is owing so many people including Bank of Industry, where she obtained a huge loan to execute a project worth billions of Naira for the government of former governor Akinwunmi Ambode of the state.
Sources in the party alleged that the woman is living a fake life and that she had been running from pillar to post to get her contract money from the incumbent Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.
“She promised to give whoever could help her get her money from the Lagos State Government some percentage of the money.
“I can tell you for free that the woman is in a serious debt mess as she can no longer pay her bills. Even the asphalt plant she got from a top politician has collapsed.
“What of her children, some of them are drug addicts and one of them is a womanizer to the extent that he goes on sex romp with several woman at a time,” said our source.
It was also revealed that the woman was one of the members of the party, who betrayed former governor Akinwunmi Ambode even before the party leaders made up their minds that he would not be given a second term.
Our source further revealed that the woman is living in a rented apartment in Banana Island Area of Lagos and that she is owing an oil company millions of Naira being money meant for the diesel she bought on credit to execute some road contracts for the last administration in the state.
We were also informed that the woman expressed her disappointment over her current office in the party as she allegedly thought it was an opportunity for her to make money to settle her huge debt and live a better life, but that this was not to be.

Mr Obasanjo’s special assistant media, Kehinde Akinyemi, who confirmed the development said the former president was concerned about the pandemic. “And I think those who can in one way or another assist in this situation should do so,” Mr Obasanjo was quoted as having said.
The facility located off the Presidential Boulevard, Oke Sari, Abeokuta has each of the 32 rooms ensuite, with a standby generator

IG orders investigation into destruction of beer bottles by police officers
The Inspector General of Police, Muhammad Adamu, has directed the police in Lagos to immediately investigate some police officers captured in a video destroying beer bottles at a drinking spot.
The one-minute video, which has been trending on Twitter since Thursday, showed uniformed police officers kicking and pulling down stacks of crates, and breaking several beer bottles.
The incident reportedly happened in Lagos, and the officers were apparently enforcing the restriction order in the state occasioned by the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Nigerians have been expressing outrage over the action of the officers.
A tweet from the police Twitter handle (@PoliceNG) on Friday said the police chief “condemned the apparent unprofessionalism and highhandedness exhibited by the Police officers”.
Mr Adamu is said to have directed the commissioner of police in Lagos State “to immediately investigate and commence disciplinary actions against the officers involved”.
The police chief said officers involved in enforcement of restriction orders and other law enforcement functions “must exercise discretionary powers with the utmost sense of professionalism, compassion and respect for the citizens.”
