Tongues have continued to wag since Second Republic governor of Oyo State, Dr. Victor Omololu Olunloyo paid a courtesy visit to the residence of immediate past governor, Otunba Adebayo Alao Akala, who is the Labour Party governorship candidate.
Following the visit, one of Otunba Akala’s men, Ismaila Ashipa went to his facebook page and asked, “Did Olunloyo come to buy gold?”
I’m sure you are wondering whether the Ogbomoso politician is now a gold merchant.
No! The last time I checked, Akala was still a politician. Besides, Pa Olunloyo is not known for wearing gold necklaces and many rings like his host.
So, what did Ashipa mean?
He was referring to a statement Dr. Olunloyo allegedly made on Edmund Obilo’s Bull’s Eye on Splash FM.
In reference to Akala, Olunloyo was quoted to have said: “ “How this pleasant man who could have fared better as a goldsmith got into the Governor’s Office
I don’t know.”
So, on this visit, did Pa Olunloyo come to buy gold? Obviously not.
I guess its got to do with some political mathematical formula the old man has for Akala.
Don’t forget, Baba is very adept at mathematical calculations and as an elderly politician, he would have some good advice for the younger former governor.
