One of the pioneer and ardent supporter of Senator Smart Adeyemi in Lokoja local government area of Kogi State, Hon. Jaiyeola Awujuola (Jasper) has described the tenure of the former lawmaker as a waste.
In a chat with newsmen in Lokoja on Tuesday, Jasper, a former Senior Special Assistant to ex-Governor Idris Wada, stated that youths from Lokoja/Koton-Karfe axis are disappointed in Smart Adeyemi’s eight year representation in the Senate.
He recalled that he started campaigning with Senator Smart at the early stage when he was the President of the NUJ. He expressed dismay with the way and manner Adeyemi treated the political structure that made him.
“It is a surprise that the Senator abandoned the structure we built for him. We regret supporting him and we can not watch him come back to the same Senate with our mandate. We cannot remain silent while he sink the Kogi West ship.
“I still hold him in high esteem but the plain truth is that he is no longer a ‘sellable’ material. We spent our personal resources, time and sweat to bring him to power but he disappointed the majority of our people in Kogi West despite the massive support Adeyemi got throughout his eight years in the Senate. He failed to bring hope to the people of the constituency.
“My expectation from Senator Smart was to come out openly and apologize to his original supporters before coming out for a third term bid but he didn’t care to visit those who gave him support during his first and second tenure; those who defied all odds to campaign vigorously for him and his party. Unfortunately, he is being under the control of few selfish and corrupt individuals who never mounted our campaign platform,” he said.
Hon. Jasper stressed further that many of their staunch supporters became frustrated while rethinking the roles they played prior to Adeyemi’s elections.
Jasper advised Adeyemi to stop his re-election bid describing it as a satanic move. He pledge that himself and other estranged supporters will spend their money to organise demonstrations against him.
