Abayomi Arabambi a factional leader of the Labour party in Ogun state is known to many for his political instability and high level of covetousness. Taking him serious doesn’t mean he’s a threat but as a step to save him for self destruction.
Arabambi’s outburst against the government of Prince Dapo Abiodun is not a surprise to many of us that know his modus operandi. His claim that various committees being set up by the Dapo Abiodun led administration is a waste of time is not strange to many that understand his highly unstable political mind and his need to make money out of such.
Prince Dapo Abiodun is a governor that believes all hands must be on deck to move the state forward. Formation of various committees is born out of the fact that the governor doesn’t see himself as an island of knowledge hence, bringing all other intelligent hands on board on decision making that will make positive impact on the state at large.
The formation of committees is part of Prince Dapo Abiodun’s commitment to the people under good governance, to be participatory, inclusive, fair, just and transparent. Despite the house reversing everything to status quo it also recommended accordingly that government should set up committees to take a second look at the issues.
Arabambi’s outburst is understandable because of the way his case against the election of Prince Dapo Abiodun was thrown out at the election petition tribunal. To those of us who are familiar with the underground moves of Arabambi towards this case, we are not shocked by his recent outburst.
This is the same Arabambi that sent emissaries to the handlers of Dapo Abiodun’s case that he’s ready to withdraw at the tribunal if he’s paid a staggering N50m. Of course Dapo Abiodun will never be interested in that. This is because the governor believes he has a solid case and has absolute confidence in the judiciary.
It’s however shocking to see Abayomi Arabambi who once endorsed Dapo Abiodun and recently lobbied to be part of one of these same committees he’s now condemning. Arabambi a serial blackmailer whose party couldn’t as much as win even one Assembly seat talk less of house of rep and still believed they were denied Governorship. Elections are over and Arambambi is broke but I will advice him to be careful in his campaign of calumny.
Few of us know of the background of Abayomi Arabambi. We might be forced to prove that his ways of engaging in campaign of calumny to make money might actually be a generational thing starting from he being a son of a cherunbim & Seraphim priest turn baker and politician!!!
