Osun: Re-election Without Industry May Go Hay-Wire - Abioye Tosin Lawrence


In the fray of last gubernatorial crusade, utmost Osun electorates might have had all their eggs in Governor Ademola Adeleke's basket with the hope that industries would be major concerns after 12years of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) which was largely focused on road networks.

Few weeks agone, Governor, Ademola Adeleke bagged "The Best Governor of The Year" by a Lagos based Champion Newspapers without parameters  but proposed road project ongoing symbolises flirting with power.

As German social theorist, Robert Michels. In his seminal analysis of the German Social Democratic Party in 1911, said that, all organizations, no matter how democratic their original intentions eventually come to be ruled by a powerful entrenched minority that, when necessary, will act illegitimately to squelch internal opposition and divert the organisations goals in order to maintain its power.

As a matter of urgency, one of the substantial blueprints to sail through the aqua of unemployment in the State is indecisively localisation of industries, rather than a divided house against prima intentions of Democratic members who together wrestled power from the progressives in what was rumoured that the state is in private hands and not exposed to idealists, but those who plays loyalty game.

Despite internal outcries by some leaders askance to have been sidelined in the government, even as nominations of cabinet members underway to rejig the performance of the Governor, the communications and interactions between the major stakeholders in the state seems "EBB" in what was described as the cause of time spent on litigation for reclamation of mandate as many still believed that, to say the administration is admitting error is too late.

To be modest, the kind of polity putting into practices is largely focused on romancing power, some are full-time politicians and once nothing is passing through their tables, it gives birth to deadly monsters. These has always diverts the initial framework of previous administrations ever had, which has reduced the hopes of many youths clamouring for a better future to nothing.

When you go to school in a country of ours and you know what you passed through, it kills off the ideas of many when there's no enabling environment to cater for the over-stacked graduates, some would say they should provide employment for themselves. We met history of our Nation and how people were hand-picked before their final project for employments, followed by free education, we deserve a better State and Country in our lifetime.

Good governance starts somewhere and perhaps it can be our State, so that someone like Governor Adeleke, who was berated might set a good record.

It's too early to throw weight behind him for another term or doling out award. Evidence of job well done greets re-election and honour, people should be firm instead of being sycophantic, they should help him to think, even as Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NPR) awarded some achievers in the state. It was not politically motivated, Oba's, police, politicians , technocrats were all awarded. It was because they swept streets as "LEONTYNE PRICE" sang before the Metropolitan Opera.
