While the party ought to be rebuilding and reconstructing for recovery from its previous and current internal crisis….this Okeya-man, through his article, is trying to smudge a knife into the fragile peace of the party with this divisive, derogatory and conflict-stimulating article.
Why not just campaign for his candidate or provide a general opinion about the party without necessarily running Prof Eleka down, someone who used to be his host and benefactor?
I am saying this because Mr Okeya was among those who have always patronized Prof Eleka.
He is also reputed for making anti-Fayose’s statements and proclamations. For example, Mr Okeya once declared that Prof Eleka’s attachment to the apron-string of Fayose was his undoing, asking Prof Eleka to pursue his political freedom and consolidate on his existing political structures. I am surprised to see this orchestrated twist tonight?!
Meanwhile, what this incidental and unprofessional journalist has conceived as a *structure* is a state of mind. This is because it is not only relative in conception alone but also conflicting in interpretations, which could be subjective to bias and prerogative thinking considering the author’s accidental denotations and misplaced contextualizations.
Whereas, others may want to contend that Eleka stands the chances of winning the primaries with his structure and the permutations on the ground, just like every other aspirant depending on the strategies, financial muscle and capacity which he apparently failed to diagnose and discuss.
Mr Okeya wrote the article to purposely discredit Prof Kolapo Olusola Eleka and for what purpose, if I may ask him?
I remember the same Okeya was actively visiting same Prof Eleka during his days as the Deputy Governor and was also frequently visiting him at home earlier this year. I equally remember a time that Prof Eleka also visited him alongside Barr Banjo in his house where some monies were being given to this man-Okeya during those moments which he’d joyfully collected.
I even wanted to buy from his Dogs puppies that day, thank God I didn’t buy because the puppy would have grown up to become a realcherous dog like the owner (elelesirin aja).
So, Okeya did not know Eleka has no structure when he was collecting the monies? Or what suddenly took away those positive argumentations about the structures that Mr Okeya had earlier proclaimed as capable of delivering Eleka as the party’s flagbearer?
We must rethink Ekiti Political Ideology and the Masquerade Theory (aka *Egungun* ). Wo r’Egungun; Wogbe seru!
I despise the way we often diss and auction old relationship on the slab of tokenism or pecuniary gains just because there are alternatives somewhere, forgetting that in politics, the first to fall sick is not always the first to die in some cases.
To his current Patrons and Matrons, beware of who you call a friend, Okeya is nothing but a serial Traitor!
