Seun Abisoye Awosanya: Entrepreneur, is a member of APC from Agboyi Ketu, Kosofe Fed .Const. Lagos. He is also a prominent and active audience on Kosofepost, Former Campaign Scribe to the late Omogbolahan Olowolagba, In an online chat with KOSOFEPOST, last week, June 22, following a question he asked KP. Thus;
Abisoye: Hope you saw the cutting of hair cost in the budget. Please kindly get the authentic budget and circulate! Our democracy is yet to be upright!
Abisoye: You can imagine that! In a year! Habaaa. Even if na 5k to cut hair per day, it won’t amount to that.
Just that we all shy away from the truth because of party stuffs! Naija needs revolution which ought to start from we the youths with our massive population.
We tend to rotate and circulate corruption and fraud under several disguise.
kosofepost: That’s it. But everyone believes everything about PMB and appointee’s is all correct.
Abisoye: Lol. Says you. Na their mouth and positions them dey find. I tend to disagree often and make my opinions count when it matters.
The fear of Jagaban an is the beginning of wisdom. That’s here on earth.
kosofepost: 2018 Budget: We are tired of kosofepost.com as a business. We want to open barbing salon. We are OK with just 25% approved for the president hair cut. Aso Rock on our mind with wall clipper.
Abisoye: All these old people lacks foresight, what is even there to sight. They are close to the grave! We need sharp minds! Ambode’s, is really transforming Lagos! People at his age or lesser should head the country.
Abisoye: APC which I as well belong to shout combating corruption! But look at it critically, the truth need be said! People just fear too much in this part of the world as Fela rightly said. Na to go kill them.
The likes of Ken saro wiwa and Ogoni members need be honored, they said it, as it was for their people and were killed. I fear for this country! SNC na next campaign trick! Recommendations upon recommendations, still no headway.
From governor to senator ,Reps, Ministers…. na so so recycling of same old politicians! Since I was a kid, na same same names dey corridor of power!
kosofepost: Won’t they see your disagreements as anti party and deprive of you appointment?
Abisoye: I don’t need any appointments bro. We need a better Nigeria 🇳🇬. It’s for our future generations. APC has been infiltrated by the so called corrupt people and other parties. Since it’s a crowd thing, na to just dance to where power is! I’m tired of these whole country and the danger is Nigeria loosing the vibrant and best heads to foreign countries. We just need to say the truth.
kosofepost: But you contributed immensely to the party than others given appointment.
Abisoye: I did but I’m not the desperate type. I’m sure with my efforts in my LCDA, my mayor is on his toes to perform. Because if he doesn’t, it will be on records and we’ll let the world see it as it is .
kosofepost: That reminds us, you are one of the stakeholders in the last LG election. Mayor Dele, will be one year in office July 25. What’s your take on his performance so far?
Abisoye: Yeah, Mayor has really performed but look at my footprints 👣 online prior elections, most are being benchmarked. I do pass the mind and message of the common man and even when I see some stuffs that needs attentions I speak up although with some reservations.
For instance, when we are considering construction/renovations of school buildings,it’s a welcomed development but why build bungalow when we are sure that it took years for this to be done and the growing/teeming population of the masses’ wards attending the public schools are skyrocketing! We plan for now and the future! You can be sure that the building will still be either raises to upstairs or reconstructed! Plan for future which we don’t even know how it’ll 👀!
But on general note, I think mayor Oshinowo is the best serving lcda chairman so far in Lagos!!!! I stand to be corrected anyways. He actually matched my expectations except a few.
kosofepost: Don’t you think that was due to unavailable resources?
Abisoye: Yeah, but what is meant doing should be done very well. Same building renovated for instance was renovated same way when Jagaban was governor. We need think out of the box 📦. If it took over two decades for this to be done, why not build story buildings with solid foundations and the rest that will last longer than 30 years!!!! The original buildings where constructed under jakande era in 1978 or so!!!! We need to be articulate and not just based on politics, sentiments or favors..
Abisoye: I will score mayor 70% cox he has just done a year or so!!!! Where are his predecessors? That’s something about young and sharp minds. There are still God fearing and better performers out there that can move the nation forward but naija na money 💰 ooo.
I for one made my observations known and it was timely responded to, which was funding!
At least the administration is touching almost every arm! Even if minute compared to what we’ve seen in the past!
Pray local govt allocations are given directly to them to aid performances.
Abisoye: Kosofepost.com should please create a medium at least to closely monitor budgets and utilization within Kosofe at least. I know there is little your team can do when not responded to but we can make our voices known! And our people will know we did our best.
kosofepost: Yes…we are trying on it. They don’t talk before but they are managing to talk now.. We need NGOs talking, people using FOI act, so that, we can report …..we can’t do it alone.
Abisoye: Yeah I understand but we can aid performances when been backed by law! We don’t know our rights! Get a law arm incorporated into the team, it’s just a matter of writing officially using the legal arm quoting the section of the law supporting our requests. If unattended to, file documents in court of law!
Abisoye: All hands must be on deck to achieve success, corruption during naija democracy surmounts Military era this days!!!! We need take the bull by the horn. Even the kingdom of God suffereth violence, and the violent taketh it by force.
Our force is our teeming masses, the law, and publicize it.
kosofepost: What’s the solution ?
Abisoye: Sincerely, I believe it’s gradual but we need to actively involve younger generations. Imagine states (not all) approving not too young to rule and not in the constitution of the federation yet! It needs be passed. 2) any public servant indicted in any corrupt charge should pay severely for it by being jailed and retrieving all. 3) monthly/quarterly review of all constituencies projects in line with the their budgets! 4) independent audit on all local government dealings. 5) Decentralize government and make it less attractive. A whole lot here team. Think we need one on one discussions.
I swear down, 80% of those in government are corrupt. Stiff measures be put in place and this immunity clause be removed! A sit in governor should face a federal high court on criminal indictment. And once you serve as a governor or senator for your terms, let it end there except extra ordinary performers that we as people of the country believe should be moved to higher positions.
Abi any of us get farms where luxurious vehicles are packed stucked with hard currencies! Baba, we ain’t all fools but we fear death.
The money spent on government and its officials is more than what individuals citizens get in their life time. We can’t all why away from the truth. The truth must be said and I stand on the truth and justice.
