The Ikosi Isheri Lcda Former Executive secretary, Alhaji ABK Afolabi Kazeem when we ran into him somewhere around GRA Ikeja, Lagos last month our brief interaction with him revealed that the professional Quantity surveyor, builder turns politician is not a Nigeria’s typical politicians.
A graduate of Quantity Surveying from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife (BSc). An Associate Member of the Institute of Nigerian Quantity Surveyors, ANIQS No. 1098, QS 843, 1996. His immerse contribution to the almost completed multi purpose administrative building in Ikosi Isheri LCDA from design and foundation can be further confirmed from those in the corridor of power.
ABK, highly wary of the media at the mention of Kosofe Post, he jokingly expressed his opinion and judgement.
He wasn’t our purpose of the visit at the said location for a special interview yet to be published. However, after the less than 5minutes put together unscheduled meet and greet encounter with the easy going man and few things came to mind;
So, this great silent archiver is one of the thousands of highly sophisticated people on Kosofe Post microbloging site?
Why is ABK not in elective leadership position in Kosofe?
He is too young to be out of active politics in Kosofe when we have 60 to 65 in elective positions
Why is our deomocracy not promoting this better than good hands?
Why people value mediocre than first rate?
Would the poor people everly support the emergence of this Igboora born astute politician to make measurable impact?
Rather than looting treasury ABK might donate his salary and use his personal money for public good. It was even gathered from multiple sources that his former council still indebted to him several years after he gave personal cash advance or I.O.U assistant to the council yet to be paid.
Though some politicians dont worth placing Bet9ja on without a banker dissapointment. but when its comes to integrity, transparency and accountability cash out, win are guaranteed instead of total loss or shedding bucket of tears.
ABK a great and silent achiever; disposition is quite different from other politicians and he never appeared so ambitious but his integrity is a good odds worth placing a bet on without emptying your wallet or burning your fingers as observed.
The good ally of Betja founder, Kunle Soname will be a year older tommorow and these were the few recounts about ABK by Kosofe Post.
