DR. TOPE ALUKO: THE EKITI STATE FOOL - Sunday Osanyintuyi | @SundayOs

Growing up as a child under the tutelage of my paternal grandma of blessed memory, she always made it abundantly clear that “ Iwe mimo ko ni ogbon” translated as “being educated does not equal smartness”.  This old saying is more apt for the recent action of Dr, Temitope Aluko, ex PDP Ekiti state secretary whom I wish to refer to in this short piece as “Ekiti Fool”.
2016 has almost not began when Dr. Tope Aluko came to national televisions displaying evidences of how June 2014 governorship election was militarized and rigged in favour of current  guy, Ayodele Fayose. Needless to inundate you with the details of those damming allegations by the “Ekiti fool”; but obviously Dr. Aluko was either under some spells making those allegations or he was on a pay roll of enemies of Fayose.

Barely two months after those hellish allegations, media was filled with images of peace meeting with Fayose by the same old Ekiti fool last Sunday who said he would never have anything do with Fayose because he ( Fayose) never won Ekiti election and meant no good for the state.
Of course, a fool will remain so no matter his age, exposure or educational pedigree.  If Dr. Aluko truly earned his Ph.D, shouldn’t have known that a meeting of any kind (peaceful, fightful) with Fayose would leave him dented? Shouldn’t he have been smart enough to know Fayose is a street man with tout blood in his veins?
Following the media backlash, Dr Aluko made a 360 degree u- turn denying ever making peace with Fayose. In the video, it was clear when Fayose referred to him as “my son and boy”. He (Aluko) in turn said the peace meeting was put together by well meaning Nigerians to move the state forward.  Peace meeting with whom? With a man you said he was never elected and doesn’t have honour to govern Ekiti state? Surely, some necessary bolts were off Dr. Aluko’s brain in that video.
 Does this new “Ekiti fool” want us to believe his ghost was standing besides Fayose in that video? Does he even think he is dreaming? How does he want his children to have honour or any respect for him as a father? Dr. Tope Aluko really showed Nigerians that his Ph.D certificate was never earned. His awarding institution should do the needful.  It is obvious that Dr. Aluko’s denial is a second thought having seen his childishness and stupidity are clear to all. How would a supposed lecturer over 50 years old have his brain filled with virus not to know Fayose was a mission to nail him?  The answer clearly is Nigeria politicians never see the danger ahead as long as it would satisfy personal interest and drop more money in their pockets to the detriments of the larger society.  
Obviously, Fayose is a master strategist who would never allow such moment goes off him without further denigrating the person of Dr. Aluko.  Hear him “I am the father of all in Ekiti. Dr. Aluko is my son and boy. I have forgiven him. I hold no grudge against him.”  An HND holder washing the brain of a Ph.D holder off with pure water! O ma see!!!
Ekiti State, my beloved state of origin currently has no head, no direction and no road map for a developed future. Governance is being redefined by Fayose and his team of incompetent people to ‘stomach infrastructures”. States like Kaduna, Enugu, Imo, etc are on convocations marketing their states values for investors while Ekiti wallows in the dark.
For all well meaning citizens of Ekiti state, there is an urgent need to rescue Ekiti future from these charlatans and save our destinies.
It is possible 2018!
