Even though, many may not readily agree with the phrase, ‘big dream’ being alluded to this Ogun state top-notch politician and oil baron, it is still not out of place to refer to his current transition from vanquished to victor, as a big dream as he has always dreamt big in virtually all areas of endeavours he has veered into, be it in business, philanthropy and of recent, politics.
Otunba Dapo Abiodun, the multi-billionaire industrialist and Chairman of the Heyden Group, who has been declared the winner of the APC Guber primaries, it is still not yet Uhuru for the man with a very cool mien and readiness to serve. Dapo Abiodun, we gathered from the grapevine, is being annihilated from within his party by the powers that be to truncate his hard-earned victory, and subtle moves are already being made by him to pacify those who still feel jolted or opposed to his candidature which has already been endorsed by the Abuja headquarters of the party. But, bespectacled Dapo, knowing fully-well that the real politicking is in the Gateway state as to who occupies next the Oke Mosan Government House in Abeokuta, Ogun State come 2019, he has set in motion to send hand of followership to those who might be plotting his downfall at the poll, and the efforts we gathered are already yielding good fruits. With the arithmetic, math and permutations in the political firmament of the Gateway State, Dapo Abiodun seems to be coasting home gradually to realize this big dream of his, which had kept on eliding him. Dapo Abiodun will yet be another corporate top shot angling for top political office.
