RE: Ijumu Youth Replies Ipinmisho, Says You Can’t Blackmail Taofiq

Our attention has been drawn to a writeup that was not only badly written but one would doubt the educational background of the author who called himself Abubakar Suleiman.

In the write up, it was said that some group of hungry youth who couldn’t help themselves in any meaningful business aside prowling around politicians looking for daily bread said that Otunba Shuaib Ipinmisho is not a recognized party man.

We wouldn’t have bothered ourself responding to an assembly of youth who are acting under the influence of hard substances but for the sake of clearity we will like to take them to a lesson school where their ignorant would be cured.

Otunba Shuaib Ipinmisho was instrumental to the victory recorded by the All Progressives Congress in the 2015 Audu/Faleke Vs Wada/Awoniyi governorship election where APC floored the opposition party with unprecedented margin of votes.

It would be noted that hitherto the arrival of Late Prince Abubakar Audu as the flagbearer of the APC and the coming home of Hon James Faleke as the deputy governorship candidate during the 2015 election, kogi state had been a PDP state .

Otunba Shuaib Ipinmisho fully participated in the election that retired PDP as a political party in Ijumu Local government and Kogi state at large. Otunba Shuaib Ipinmisho worked alongside with Hon Funsho Olumoko, Hon Comrade Yahaya Ade Ismail (former APC state treasurer) Senator Smart Adeyemi and others whose names could not be mentioned here because there is no time for that.

We can however say that, Otunba Shuaib Ipinmisho is among the few people who planted the seed of the party in Ijumu and kogi state at large.

It would be recalled that during the 2019 presidential election, the party APC could not deliver the its candidates from the west, where both the Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu House of representatives and Kogi west senate were taken by the opposition PDP. APC as a party lost the two seats in Kogi west, this propelled governor Yahaya Bello to warn the party leaders across Kogi west not to lose the Assembly seats to the opposition party. We all know what played out during the Assembly election before it could be won.

Prior to this, the aggrieved members of the party who funded and founded the party were on a sojourn to ADC before a reconciliation was made, it is a normal thing for misunderstanding to ensue between party members.

During the November 16th governorship election, Otunba Shuaib Ipinmisho reciprocated what he did in the 2015 election by mobilizing for the re election of Bello/Onoja ticket, as a member of Ijumu campaign council, he was instrumental to the re election of governor Bello beyond his Ilaare/Igbolare ward were he gave the opposition party a pathetic votes.

It is despicable and excruciatingly lugubrious that some children of perdition who didn’t witness when the game started are now the one trying to cause brawl in the polity.

We want to urge Hon Taofiq Isa to call those guys to order or engage them in work as perhaps if that is done, it would reduce the level of joblessness which is capable of making one to be a society nuisance.
