The Chairman Board of Trustees of SOBI 101.9 FM Ilorin, Lukman Olayiwola Mustapha has charged all and sundry to get a copy of the newly published book by Chief Iyiola Oyedepo Akogun, stressing that it is a good guide towards understanding the deceit and lies of the political class.
Mustapha popularly called Rebirth captain made this charge while launching the book titled the 21Political lies in Nigeria, at Kwara Hotels, Ilorin Kwara State earlier today.
While commending the consistent efforts of Akogun in always documenting societal and polity events, he beseeched all office holders and electorates to read the book and use as a guide against previous mistakes.
He said “I will be buying a copy each for the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Mal. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and all 9 members of the members of the National Assembly from Kwara State.
“This book should be used as a guide to against the diversionary tactics of the politicians and we all must refuse to be deceived in subsequent elections, haven been exposed to their lies by an insider” he added.
Speaking on the motivation behind the book, Chief Iyiola Oyedepo said “I was inspired to write the book in the month of August, 2019, I was in Arlington, USA. I attended some training programs at the campaign management School of Leadership Institute.
“…there are some lessons derivable from the entire struggle (otoge 2019) which is more of interpretation of issues than mere documentation. The twenty-One (21) Political lies in Nigeria is certainly part of the meanings and lessons of our struggle.
“I have particularly written this book for the younger generation of politicians who although might not be too young to run, but might not have the practical experiences.
“There is a world of difference between politics of winning election and politics of good governance. Anybody, even a ‘fool’ can win election since our political culture creates room for electoral manipulations and people can win by all means.
