According to a report by Daily Trust, a transformer donated to the people of Sabo community in Ibadan, Oyo State by PDP governorship candidate in the state, Sen Teslim Folarin, was removed a day after the election on Sunday April 12th by some aides of the former Senate Leader.
He had donated the transformer just weeks prior to the election, but when he came 4th in the election, he probably decided the people were not loyal enough and took back his gift…:-). Continue…
An alarm raised by members of the Sabo community on sighting those removing the Transformer in the early hours of Sunday did not move the perpetrators who eventually removed the
transformer to an unknown place.
Members of the Sabo community instantly stormed the palace of the Sarkin Hausawa, Alhaji Ahmed Dahiru Zungeru where they expressed their worry, a development which compelled the Sarki to wade into the matter by calling on Folarin’s political associate within the community, Alhaji Bashiru Maiborno, for clarification.
Daily Trust gathered that it was at this stage that Baiborno spiritedly made moves to effect the return of the transformer to Sabo community, but he was rebuffed as the Sabo community vowed not to take back the transformer from Senator Folarin.
Efforts by our correspondent to get Senator Folarin’s personal reaction on the development was futile as he could not be reached.
Maiborno however insisted that the transformer was removed with a view to keeping it in a safer place. “Senator Folarin is a man of his words,” Maiborno told inquisitive journalists.
