It is common knowledge that the only thriving business in Nigeria today aside oil is politics. The attractive trade of politics is what can transform a hopeless person into a multimillionaire overnight; it can also transform a miscreant to an important figure in the society simply because politics has deposited the command over purchasing power with him.
The governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosu has become one of the beneficiaries of the political situation in our dear country. Or how else can one sum up the reason for his new housing project, if not because he has made more than enough from being the number one citizen of the rocky state.
Many people who know the governor before he became a senator of the federal republic will attest to the fact that he had no house in Abeokuta; it was because of his ambition then, that his kinsmen made it a point of duty for him to get a befitting house in the state. True to it, the governor who is popularly known as SIA got a beautiful abode just by Layi Balogun Road inside the prestigious Ibara Housing Estate.
Today, the beautiful house is no more because the governor needed to flaunt his new status as an extremely wealthy administrator, hence, he has demolished the property and he is at present erecting a magnificent edifice that could cost up to Two Billion Naira (N2 B) when completed.
Already the house which has two decking below the ground has gulped several millions of naira. The governor did not seek the services of “baba sikira, there is work at site tomorrow’ or those who will litter the building site with shovel, pan et all; he simply contracted one of the biggest builders to transform the house into heaven on earth. True to it, the builders have been working on the site night and day.
The former building that was a corner piece has been extended by the governor who has bought the building beside the site.
Those who know hinted us that it was almost impossible for anyone to know what was going on at the site because the whole place was covered up. But now that they’ve been able to finish the underground part of the building, it is now becoming clearer to people what is going on at the place.
Aside this, cityrovers.blogspot.com has it on good authority that the governor has been acquiring property as if they are heading for extinction. He has bought about two properties very close to his house at the estate; he has also bought another in the earth of the city that has become a subject of controversy lately in the peaceful state.
