He was once a chairman of Ifako/Ijaiye local government and he is now set to come back in the same capacity in the forthcoming LG elections.
But Apostle Toba Oke’s lack-luster performance during his first outing now seems to be his Achilles’ hills. According to pundits, his comeback bid would have been a misnomer if not for the unpopular backing he got from the national chieftain of his party. Be that as it may, Toba Oke’s reckless management of the council’s till while in office and those he stepped on their toes are not in consonant with his desired second attempt. The monumental debt profile he left behind as LG Boss is still a subject of concern for many who have swore not to give him another opportunity to go in there again as chairman; to the extent that many of his hangers-on are now the ones fronting for him in terms of campaign and awareness because the unrepentant Toba is finding it difficult to go and meet the stakeholders in the community on his ambition as he has nothing to tell them over his last maladministration. These are the odds the bespectacled politician must be braving up to surmount in days to come, even his financial buoyancy is also said to be suspect.
