The Oyo state governor Abiola Ajimobi and his predecessor Chief Adebayor Alao Akala, moved their battle to facebook....all just cos of wetin person been put as their FB status
A Facebook user stirred the hornet's nest when he wrote as his status update that some members of the state chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria shut down the state secretariat in protest against alleged non-inclusion of real party members in the list of commissioners-nominee and caretaker committees for Local Government Areas sent to the state House of Assembly by Ajimobi.
The status first attracted the attention of a top official of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Mr. Kehinde Ayoola, who wrote that the government had just started.
He added, "Cast not your pearls before swines (sic), that is what the scripture says."
But Ajimobi's Senior Special Assistant on Public Communication, Dr. Festus Adedayo, reacted, saying, "It is the beauty of democracy that informed, uninformed, aggrieved and genuine commentators trade comments as this.
"What has not been said yet, however, is whether those Governor Ajimobi nominated are not bonafide citizens of Oyo State and do not deserve appointments."
Adedayo's comment drew the attention of the state PDP Director of Media and Publicity, Dr. Morohunkola Thomas, who wrote "Whether they are bonafide citizens of Oyo State is not the issue. This is a Lagos list.
"This governor has to go back and learn the political ropes. They think it is easy. They have not seen anything. Ole to gbe kakaki oba...(a thief that stole the king's trumpet...)"
Immediately after Thomas posted the comment, Adedayo fired back.
He wrote, "Egbon Thomas, falsehood should not be part of responsible opposition, with all due respect. Even Goebels, in his irresponsible propaganda, would fare better. What a responsible opposition would do, with due respect, is to point at the names. "In any case, how do you mean by, 'Ole to gbe kakaki...' That must be the greatest equivocation of the century!
