Ogunism, newest Political lexicon plays in Ifelodun

The G10 is the apex political organ in Ifelodun Local Council Development Area. Several attempts to widen the constituents to 16 have always been tactically rebuffed. But the make-up of the group smacks of high level ethnicity that counters opinions inimical to the people of Ifelodun and summarizes the bases for admission into the group which seem to cover the interest of the legacy members.

Some of the members include: Hon Olusegun Ogunbanjo from Ogun State, Hon S.A Ayodele, Hon Muda Kuti, Hon Taiwo Adenekan and Pa Remi Williams all from Ogun State.

Others are Hon Kolawole Taiwo,Hon Wahab Adigun,Hon Lamina and finally Hon Giwa who recently got admitted to replace the late Ogunnaike senior and Dr Ajijola.

Automatic members of the group by virtue of their offices include; Hon Fatai Ajidagba as the Council Chairman, Hon Atoyebi, the Party LGA Chairman and Hon Olumoh as the Assembly man.

In their relationship at the group,  Taiwo Adenekan of the Allied group has Lamina with him, Steven Ayodele has a grip with Hon Kolawole Taiwo and Wahab Adigun even by virtue of coming from the same Amukoko area and ward . Olusegun Ogunbanjo, Dr Ajijola and Pa Remi Williams are from Ojo road axis and this relationship plays out in crucial moments of voting or considering any joint decisions.

In replacing the late Ogunaike snr., among all the considered names, Hon Giwa, a former elected lawmaker was chosen because, the Amukoko axis felt instead of giving out the slot to Ojo road axis where the late Ogunnaike comes from will put them at disadvantage, they rather bring it down to their area even though Hon Giwa may not really be their man.

Based on this, Ogunism has become the newest political lexicon in Ifelodun LCDA. By definition, it explains the assemblage of Ogun people in Ifelodun who influences decisions and other things. Is it still a wonder why even Dr. Ajijola as the foremost Council Chairman of Old Ajeromi cannot have an impactful influence.

It is a culmination of these that was at play that seem to be drowning Hon Adigun and PMG political dynasty, a source in Ifelodun claims.
