A Former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Otunba Segun Showunmi, has accused President Bola Tinubu of enabling Ogun Governor, Dapo Abiodun to commit atrocities.

KOKO TV NG earlier reported that the Ogun State government demolished DATKEM Plaza in Ijebu Ode owned by a former first lady of the state, Yeye Olufunke Daniel, wife of former Governor Gbenga Daniel.

Daniel is the Senator representing Ogun East senatorial district of the state in the 10th Senate.

Governor Abiodun and Senator Daniel belong to the same party – the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The construction of the building started in 2009 and it was scheduled for inauguration at the end of September 2023.

The building reportedly cost about N1 billion.

According to the Project Manager and Developer, Adeolumi Environmental Services Ltd, Engr. Olusegun Lawal, who handled the project, in his preliminary report, the reasons given by Governor Abiodun’s administration for demolishing the plaza included “not enough parking space”.

Speaking on the issue, Showunmi noted that the people of Ijebu Ode woke up on Sunday to find “huge structural damages which I am told might require that the entire 5-story building edifice be pulled down”.

“In an environment where so much development is needed, what type of gangsterism do we call this?” he asked.

He continued, “President Bola Tinubu, you are enabling Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State. We keep reporting him but what we see is that the more we report him, the more you pamper him with access to you.

“It was funny how he made the trip to India coming on the heels of the allegation of a chairman of local government around interference with local government funds. Will Ogun now feel safer under President Buhari, a Daura man and unsafe under a Yoruba man?

“If no one will tell you, I will; your body language is making us feel very unsafe in Ogun State. First, Dapo Abiodun got his thugs to attack me on the premises of a court, and then he shamefully removed Wale Adedayo based on a serious allegation of diversion of local government funds. Now, a sitting Senator has to deal with this.

“President Bola Tinubu, is this the type of thing you stand for or am I dreaming? The likes of Dapo Abiodun, who are profiting from a democratic struggle that took so many lives cannot be allowed to rubbish what is ideal behaviour and conduct in democracy.

“Mr President, in our Yoruba language, ‘dundu Dapo Abiodun nlata ju’ (Dapo Abiodun’s actions are getting extremely overbearing). The powers and privileges of a governor cannot and should not be so total that a president will be unable to save the people.”
