Lying Is Your Trademark - Gbenga Daniel Rattles Amosun


ABEOKUTA - A former governor of Ogun state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has descended heavily on his successor and the outgoing governor of Ogun state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun describing him as a "legend liar".

Daniel's knock came on the heel of an allegation that he (Amosun) inherited “a failed state” upon assumption of office in 2011 from Daniel administration.

Amosun had last Thursday alleged that Daniel who ruled between 2003 and 2011 bequeathed a state marred with bad economy, deplorable infrastructure and insecurity, thereby discouraging investors to come to the state.

Amosun who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, spoke at the launch of Ogun State Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency. 

But Daniel in a statement signed by his Media Consultant, Steve Oliyide and made available to Journalists in Abeokuta took Amosun to the cleaners, describing his allegation as “pathological and needless lies.”

He said Amosun’s reference of Ogun State of 2011 “as having failed” smacked “ignorance and insulting the sensibilities of the citizens and workers who daily toil to give their utmost best in service to the state.” 

He submitted that “the greatest amount of investments, many of them with far reaching positive implications on the economy and lives of the citizens of the state were attracted between the year 2003 and 2011.” 

Daniel added that Amosun lacks “moral credential to talk on security in a state, as there are several evidence and proofs that he is actually the purveyor and sponsor of violence.” 

"In his usual trademark as a liar for which he has become a legend, Mr. Amosun, who was represented by the Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Barrister Taiwo Adeoluwa at one of the Ogun State Government's event on Friday was quoted among other lies, to have implied that the Ogun State Government which he inherited failed because of insecurity.

"In the last eight years, most citizens of Ogun State have come to an unwritten agreement about Mr. Amosun’s penchant for lies, and attribute which has become pathological with and second nature to him; he has earned several infamous sobriquets around this. 

"But since his latest comment was published in some credible online media, for the sake of posterity, especially so that a generation of future leaders in Ogun State will not be misled into believing the lies, some clarifications need to be made.

"It is disappointing that a man who has had the privilege of governing a sophisticated state such as Ogun in all of eight years can still be ignorant of the proper definition of a “failed state”. 

"Mr. Amosun clearly demonstrates his ignorance and level of education if he can refer to Ogun State of 2011 as having failed. This is insulting the sensibilities of the citizens and workers who daily toil to give their utmost best in service to the state.

"Mr. Amosun has the next six days to hand over government to a newly elected governor and no doubt the citizens are already counting the days with a great sigh of relief; many citizens are celebrating and looking forward to their freedom from Mr. Amosun’s needless lies.

"It is on record that the greatest amount of investments, many of them with far reaching positive implications on the economy and lives of the citizens of the state were attracted between the year 2003 and 2011. 

"The fact that Mr. Amosun tried to undo these investments did not remove from their timeless values as economic drivers for the overall development of Ogun state."
