The first son of late Chief Lamidi Ariyibi Adedibu, who was fondly called the “Garrison Commander” of Ibadan politics, Adeyemi Abass, has described his father as a liar and dishonest man.
He said this while explaining the reason he did not follow his father’s footsteps in venturing in politics.
Abbas maintained that politicians only seek ways to deceive the people instead of finding solutions to human problems.
He told Sun, “I grew up in an environment where people drink politics everyday, but I
saw beyond politics and that is why I chose to be a scientist because it is the most lucrative and reliable aspect in life, it will not give you too much problem.
“With science, you are ready to sacrifice yourself on issue of development unlike in politics where you deceive human beings. A scientist should stay in the lab, bring up something creative to help in development and not to be poke-nosing into the affairs of politicians.
“Some scientists do go into politics, but they end up being like them, that is why I shun politics. Worst are Nigerian politicians, who are liars, including my late father, they are dishonest.
“I watched them when they played their game and I can say without any fear that there
is no politician in Nigeria that is honest. Nigerian politicians are liars, they don’t fulfill promises.
“Most of Nigerian politicians are completely dishonest, they have deceived Nigerians and it is time for Nigerians to sit up.
“Most of them are greedy, selfish, self-centered and dishonest. 2019 is fast approaching, people should ask questions, ask what they have done for their community.
“In regard to my late father, when he was alive he used some of his own money to feed people. People would bring money to him, he didn’t keep the money, he shared the money.”
