The Kwara APC chieftain Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo lost supporters over his recent political steps against the incumbent governor of Kwara state Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq. His political value was downgraded by his numerous supporters who claimed they throw their support behind him for the benefit of Kwarans not his personal interest. However, the status of his weighty supporters were diminished against him over his backslide political activities against the governor
Akogun vanguard group, State APC youth leader, Hon. Segun Awogbade (Orisun Ignomina coordinator), and all APC members in Isanlu Isin were protested against Akogun side-chick against the governor. They described it as deceptive, selfish and condemnable.
The state APC youth leader Mr. Oyinloye said, Akogun’s selfish interest is the main reason why he conjoined with BOB in satirical enmity to dismantle AA government. He, however, urge all Isanlu Isin APC members to stick behind the governor to succeed in fulfilling his campaign promises.
Orisun Ignomina coordinator who joined the protest Hon. Segun Awogbode expressed his displeasure on Akogun’s political reaction against the governor. In his words, he accused the embattle party chieftain of conspiring with other Kwara enemies to destroy AA government. he expressed further that Akogun deceptive character will surely hurt him if he continue conspiring with power mongers in destroying AA government. He said, he will not only fail but also destroy his legacy.
A stalwart APC member Olaniyi James ( Akogun vanguard coordinator) AA Kwara south support group PRO also registered their dissatisfaction on Akogun Iyiola political battle Against the governor. They labelled Akogun as ingrate, dishonest and insincere being. They said, they are being neglected by him without considering their unstained support for him for many years. They said they support him all this while him for the benefit of the state not for his personal benefit
They explained further that they suffered in many angles on his behalf, even if the embattle chieftain failed to appreciate them and recognize their support for him. They insinuated that many souls were lost while some injured mercilessly base on their unstoppable support for him. He said years back when he was trying to make himself state party chairman during the days in PDP against Fagbemi ambition, they risked their lives and stood by him but they received nothing in return than betrayal. Even those who died and injure while supporting him did not get a single greeting from Akogun nor condolent greeting to the victims.

It is no longer news that the Kwara APC crises has reached unbearable point. As a result of this the party has been divided by different factions and the party leaders are taking much portion in upgrading the party crises
We can’t forget the reputable and memorable victory that led to the destruction of saraki dynasty at the poll with the help of masses movement nicknamed as O to ge.
Unfortunately, the building up of the victory and maintenance are currently missing owing to the reality that has to do with supremacy tie and over ambitious trail within the party leaders.
Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo was one of the leaders of O to ge who dismantled saraki dynasty. He was followed and loved by Kwarans just with popular belief that he was fighting for the welfare and progress of the state. However, recently, the o to ge leader withdrew his support away from the governor with the main reason that has to do with lack of juicy offers, personal interest and hesitation of the governor to succumb to puppet’s campaign being introduced by the embattled APC chieftain.
As a result of this, he lost his supporters to the governor. His main reason to drop his support for the governor blew out against the supporters who initially believed that he fought for freedom for welfare of the state.
Unfortunately, the worst rose up against him once more when majority of his supporters in his home land diverted their support in favour of the governor. They made their protest against him with the attention of the royal highness of his home land.
According to them, they stopped supporting him because of the governor achievement within short period in office. They described the governor as best ever in the history of the state and they will try everything within their power to make him succeed.
Another Akogun big supporter one, Mr. Adewara Olusegun expressed his sadness on Akogun move against the governor. He described the act as awful one.
According to him, he said, he has been supporting Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo for the past sixteen years. However, the scenario hasn’t be normal for Isanlu Isin owing to Akogun deceptive attitude.
Isanlu Isin local government has been founded since 26 years back yet the development of the local government remains a dream because of Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo political ideology, as he explained the basic reason why Akogun action is condemnable.
He said since the creation of Isanlu Isin the city has no single pharmacy in the entire city let alone other social vibes which can develop a settlement. He said, Akogun neglected this fact in favour of selfish interest.
In his outburst, the man said, Isanlu Isin always stand as enemy of any government in kwara from the past and this has made them lost so many chances of improving the city. He explained that it was Akogun who always lead the enmity against any government. The man said that the opponent game they played against Lawal, Saraki, Megida didnt bring any good thing and enthused that it will be senseless to do same against the incumbent governor just because of the love of Akogun. He lamented that they played big role in bringing AA to his current position and it will be bad if they destroyed a house built because of selfishness.
He then, called spiritual fathers of land for spiritual cleaning in order to make the entire city a prosperous one and also pledge support to AA government
They also raised their voice against the godfatherism being proposed by some selfish elements who think godfatherism is the main Target of good governance. They also urged all
Kwarans to continue support the governor.
The group warned him that they will take the campaign through out the Kwara south if he didn’t stop all his political activities against the governor.
If all the stories have to go by, then Akogun needs to retrace his step. You can’t have what you are not given by God.
