Aides of People’s Democratic Party, PDP governorship candidate in Oyo state, Sen Teslim Folarin have reportedly removed the transformer he donated to the people of Sabo community in Ibadan, in anger after losing the Saturday governorship election.
According to a report by Daily Trust, the former Senate Leader had donated the transformer just weeks prior to the election, but when he came 4th in the state governorship election, he probably decided the people were not loyal enough and took back his ‘gift’.
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.
It was further 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.
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,” he said.
