The Ogun state Commissioner for culture and tourism, Rt. Hon. Muyiwa Oladipo has declared his support for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Prince Dapo Abiodun, saying he can’t leave the party for any reason.
Many have been wondering which party the Hon Commissioner belongs, based on his total silence in this political terrain, but just recently, Bashorun Muyiwa Oladipo speaks on why he still remain in the ruling party.
In his words with a journalist, He said “Truly there has been many gossip here and there based on where I belong, most especially when I am silent about the ongoing politics in the state. But I must confess to you that I Bashorun Muyiwa Oladipo, I am in APC. APC is the party founded by our late father, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, I mean the Action Group, that later was transform to Alliance for Democracy, and later to SDP and now, APC by the agreement of the political elders.
“There was a time I showed my interest in contesting for governorship position of this state, but God said it is not yet time, that I should go and relax and not stress myself. Let me be frank with you, I am in ruling party, APC and I am working for the governorship candidate of APC, which is Prince Dapo Abiodun who I am very sure by the grace of God will emerge.
“I am in APC because my boss, Governor Ibikunle Amosun who appointed me is still in APC, though we all cannot sleep and put our heads in the same direction, and we all have our conscience to follow, this is why my boss is supporting another candidate from the opposition party, APM. This life is like a talking drum, what faces someone may back another. There is something my boss, Governor Amosun saw, which is why he is supporting Hon Adekunle Akinlade, the sky is very wide that birds fly without touching each other.
“Many Commissioners have resigned from their appointed post, but why I have not resigned is because the party that appointed me is still the one ruling, the governor never said he is going to APM, so I have no reason leaving the party. If the governor leave the party for APM today and you still see me in APC tomorrow, then you can judge me.
“If the governor which to remove me because of my interest, he can do that, but I know my boss, he cannot do that because everybody is entitled to his own wish.
“I will just advise the people of Ogun state, most especially the youths that they should be very wise in working for dreaded politicians. Any leader that send them to go and kill for him or her, they should tell such leader to put his or her children forward. A leader without the fear of God will send thugs to go and kill for him.” He concluded.
