Anger over Bankole/OGD’s story
It is amazing how rumours seem to easily permeate the Gateway fortress of the Ogun State.
Even in the face of obvious false hood, rumors have never ceased to fly on matters affecting the state, especially on issues involving His Excellency.
Now that you have a picture of the situation on ground, you might begin to understand the implication of the wicked rumour making the rounds in the state, alleging that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Dimeji Bankole had snubbed Oga Guv’ at the 50th coronation anniversary of the Awujale of Ijebu-land, Oba Sikiru Adetona recently.
An angry avid supporter of the of the people’s Guv quipped that “what was most annoying is the fact that the Amebos chose the pages of some national dailies (not Vanguard) to vent their spleens on a matter that was unfounded“.
The source who insisted he was seated close to the speaker at the ceremony said, it was another of the several attempts by the enemies of the state to fan the embers of rancour among prominent members of the state.
“I read the story and I think it is a contrivance of the author and machinations of the enemies of the state.”, the source gushed.
