The old narrative of unnecessary show of political force and greediness which have become the order of the day in Nigeria's political landscape seems to have reared its ugly head again this time in Ogun State. 

And if information at our disposal is anything worthy of consideration, then,Hon. Oludare Oluwatimileyin Kadiri is the member representing Ijebu North II State Constituency which covers Ago-Iwoye, Oru, Awa, Mamu, Ilaporu, Ako and others,is presently on a blackmail mission to frustrate on going development efforts for the people of the state constituency after his alleged unsuccessful attempts to muscle out kickback from federal government contractors from the area.

According to an insider source of one of the construction handling some federal government ecological fund projects in Ijebu North part of Ogun state, the lawmaker, Hon. Oludare Kabiri who had made frantic efforts to meet the owner of the contracted company in charge of the major development projects facilitated to bring succor to people in the area had started a campaign of calumny after his efforts to unlawfully make money from the contractors in the area met a brick wall.

He had allegedly stormed the site with thugs disrupting construction works posing as treat to workers who were carefully drawn from the community as his hoodlums were reportedly resisted by the community who is one of the biggest beneficiary of the project in terms of of supply of materials and labour handling the construction job.

It was gathered that the lawmaker had indicted the contractor of doing a substandard job knowing fully well he had approached the companies top hierarchy including the Chief Engineer of Haleem services to settle him claiming he was part of the lead facilitator the contract to the area being his constituency.

Investigations revealed that the lawmaker's alleged frustrations began when he at different occasions threaten workers at site on demand to see the chairman of the contracted firm and leaving instructions to be contacted which later led to his demands of  bribe from the Contractors who called him to query to understand why he had been distorting work at the construction sites.

Those in the know inform that he had also confided in a federal lawmaker of his blackmail actions since he hasn't illegally benefited from the contract which his meant to ease the sufferings of people of the area.

According to a leaked chat between the Hon. Dabiri and a federal lawmaker,  he had threatened to report the companies at the plenary of the Ogun state house of assembly. The act regarded as a cheap blackmail had open can of worms that is deliberately orchestrated extort funds from contractors who had adhere to strict project specification in delivery a world class result that will bring stand the test of time.
The Contractors who had applauded the speaker of the State Assembly, explained that it is ridiculous for an honorable member of the house to malign the name of her firm on the floor of the house without any concrete evidence to back his frivolous accusations.

Though the Speaker, Rt Hon. Suraj Adekunmbi had corrected the aggrieved lawmaker, those in the know squealed that the company remains one of the best in handling ecological jobs and had delivered world class  services in Lagos, Abuja and other southern part of the country.

The construction giant known for his professionalism had never at any point jettison quality of service delivery for anything and the lawmaker had since goofed with his substantiated and unfounded allegations on the on-going projects.

The firm through its spokesperson expresses its disappointment in politicians who employ cheap blackmail to get companies to dance to their tune instead of joining hands to bring succor to the electorate's yearning of dividend of democracy. He also added that its  important for politicians to passionately shun selfless and politics of hate and witch-hunting for cheap funds.
