NEMA Intervention: Stop Parading Yourself As The Initiator — BUNVIC’s Aide Cautions LG Boss


The Senior Special Assistant to the House of Representatives member representing Surulere/Ogo-oluwa Federal constituency, Hon. Segun Odebunmi, Mr. Moruf Ajibola, has warned the Caretaker Chairman of Surulere North LCDA, Hon. Sharafadeen Olatunji, to stop parading himself as the initiator the recent relief programs donated to some communities in the area by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Ajibolu, who stated this in a press statement, revealed that Hon. Odebunmi used his goodwill and tenacious representive prowess to attract and commit NEMA to the affected communities within the council.

He described the action of the Caretaker Chairman as the usual PDP Gestapo manner of reaping where they did not sow which has now become their brand identity in Oyo state.

He said, “It is shameful that the PDP government at the state level who recently went about re-commissioning projects that were already completed by his immediate predecessor and waiting handover, has now knavishly institutionalized such practise and Roguish tendency within their party that PDP appointees like Olatunji now scandalously adopt without remorse all in a bid to deceive the people. It is even most unfortunate, that this comes from a Chairman that is foisted on the people against all known laws governing the administration of Local Government in Nigeria.”

While reacting to a report that the Caretaker Chairman facilitated relief materials worth Millions of Naira to victims of rainstorm which affected about 250 households in 10 communities in April, Ajibolu said,“The council chairman knew nothing about how representatives of National Emergency Management Agency got to know about the incident let alone coming down to the affected communities to assess the extent of damages, only for him to be claiming the glory when they brought the item. It is grossly incredible.
“To put the record straight, My Principal Hon. Segun Dokun Odebunmi facilitated the materials and this was made possible due to the existing harmonious relationship he enjoys with NEMA that antedate even the present government in Oyo state.

“It is a long term relationship which the people of Surulere and Ogo Oluwa have hugely benefited from for almost half a decade. So one man, who has rarely been to the capital city let alone being aware of the road to NEMA office cannot just come and claim such glory.

“Immediately the incident was reported , Hon Odebunmi in his usual character acted out of duty and wrote a letter to the Headquarters of NEMA after which they stormed the scene immediately. He followed up on this thoroughly till they brought the first batch of the items , only for us to see the council chairman and his stooges spreading it across different media platforms that they have fulfilled promise.”

He then called on the Council boss to emulate Hon. Odebunmi and ugently liase with the Governor and Oyo State Emergency Management Agency to contribute their quota to ameliorate the plight of the victims instead of using same for fake political grandstanding.
