Former Minister of Justice Wept In Amosun’s First Year Anniversary Celebration
Minister of Justice Wept In Amosun’s First Year Anniversary Celebration. Former World Court judge Prince Bola Ajia, yesterday, openly Wept during the First Year Celebration of the Governor Ibikunle Amosun one Year Anniversary which held at the June 12 Cultural Centre in Abeokuta, the state capital, due to the embarrassment he received from the audience.
Prince Ajia, who was one of the dignitaries and speakers at the well attended even, was booed when he mounted the podium to deliver his speech a situation that embarrassed him.
Before Bola Ajia mounted the podium to deliver his speech, some dignitaries and speakers, who included Former Military administrators of the state; Oladehinde Joseph, Daniel Akintonde and Kayode Olofinmoyin had earlier spoken on different issues of national importance, but when the Former Minister of Justice climbed the podium for his speech, the audience started shouting and booing the Former World Court jurist.
The uproar, which lasted for about 10 minutes, came from far behind and spread to the entire hall, overwhelming and disgracing the Former attorney-general and Minister of justice, which made tears drop from his eyes.
It took the intervention of the present and a Former governor of the state; Ibikunle Amosun and Olusegun Osoba respectively, as well as the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo before the Former World Court Jurist could be rescued from the angry audience.
It would be recalled that Prince Bola Ajia was the chairman of Ogun State Elders Council, a body put up by the Former governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel.
The council which had been very critical of the activities of the opposition during the tenure of Daniel was also seen by many to be an instrument the Former governor was using to fight his perceived enemies, including Senator Ibikunle Amosun and the group of 15 lawmakers then.
Meanwhile, Ogun State Governor, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun has reiterated his resolve to be a leader with a clear mission, even as he declared that his 365 days in office had been tough.
Amosun took stock of his performance with a verdict that lost glory would come with new “Ogun standard.”
He said the mission to rebuild the state has touched virtually all sectors, particularly the five cardinal programmes of the ruling party.
Amosun emphasised that, “the Ogun Standard is not just a phrase or catch-line or bravado, but aims for the very best, which will be the benchmark for the kind of development we seek for our dear state,” the governor said.
On some of his feats, Amosun said after years of decline, the state has recorded higher number of enrolment in the public schools. This he attributed to the turn-around in the sector, affirming “our commitment on education not negotiable as we shall ensure visible and enduring legacy.”
On security, the governor lamented that his administration met criminal fraternity, “but with our determination to make the state peaceful, about N5bn was expended on security, which has forced these criminals out of the state.”
He added that about N1.3bn raised by the security trust fund is still intact.
On employment generation, the governor disclosed that a total of 11,504 jobs would come through health, agriculture, environment and the core civil service.
He stressed that his government would continue to be driven by the needs of the people which will be met by the new Ogun Standard.
