Mrs Adedibu replies Ajimobi for condemning late husband’s ‘amala politics’




Wife of the late champion of ‘Amala politics’ in Oyo State, who is a leader of the state chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mrs. Bose Adedibu yesterday came hard on Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State for speaking ill of her late husband’s style of politics.

She spoke in reaction to a recent remark credited to the Governor where he stated that the “era of Amala politics is gone” in the state, adding that under the era of ‘Amala politics’, which was popularized by the late strongman of Ibadan politics, the Internally Generated Revenue in the state was shared among politicians.

Ajimobi stressed that that was no longer the case as “we can account for what we have spent”.

Reacting however, Mrs. Adedibu disagreed with Ajimobi, accusing his administration of not being able to account for what it spends.

Wondering why the governor did not condemn her late husband’s ‘amala politics’ 12 years ago when he became senator through it on the platform of Alliance for Democracy, AD, she said: “Baba Adedibu was lover of Ibadan indigenes and one of them is Governor Ajimobi, who also happens to be like a son to my husband. Ajimobi was only condemning Adedibu’s leadership to play his usual mild drama, because he lacks the moral right to do so”.

Mrs. Adedibu, who insisted that her husband’s passing gave the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other political parties the opportunity to thrive in the state, stressed that the late strongman of Ibadan politics has created a vacuum difficult to fill as a backbone of PDP in the state.

She likened the situation in the state to the absence of the cat, which gives the rat chance to exist, saying that the abysmal performance of the PDP in the last governorship election in the state was due to Baba Adedibu’s absence.

“It was very pathetic that despite our efforts and the money we expended to tell people of Oyo State our good intention to govern them, were to no avail. But, we have accepted the result as God’s wish, a reason we did not go to court to challenge the outcome of the elections,” she stated.
