Multiple Govt Sources Denies Rift Between Ogun SSG, Tokunbo Talabi And Hon Egbetokun!
...Insiders Say It's Fake News
Dependable sources in the office of the Ogun State Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr. Tokunbo Talabi has denied a media report alleging that he was at war with a former Speaker of the state House of Assembly and the Special Adviser Governor Dapo Abiodun of the state on Political Matters, Hon. Tunji Egbetokun.
A source in the office of the SSG, who pleaded anonymity said that the report was a figment of the imagination of the writers, adding that the two politicians are having the best of relationship at the moment.
He said further that there was no reason for the two gladiators to be at war and that they are both working for the success of the government and the Governor and that they would do everything possible to ensure that there is harmony within the government
His words, “Tokunbo Talabi and Egbetokun are having better relationship now than when they got into office initially and I can tell you that the duo are very close.
“How can Egbetokun be fighting a man, who he sees as a common friend between him and the Governor. As I am talking to you now Egbetokun is about to travel abroad for vacation and he went to inform Talabi and both men were laughing and throwing banters.”
The source insisted that there was no basis for the top government officials to be at loggerheads and described the media report as the handiwork of the enemy of progress, who he said wanted the downfall of the government.
“We all know that as we are moving to the election year some people would want to cause disaffection amongst the top government officials. This is one of them, but it will not stand as we are ready for their shenanigans and evil concoctions.
“They can write whatever they like, but Talabi and Egbetokun are well-positioned in the government and they are focused, so they are not disturbed of perturbed by such a destructive report. Infact, they would not dignify them with a reply,” he said.
He however, warned “perpetrators of such reports and their cohorts to desist from doing such henceforth,” saying that this could lead to “a legal action from our end because we would not allow anything to derail us from taking the state to the next level in our time.”
