How Bisoye Fagade’s Uncertainty Cost Him Political Ambition

Bisoye Fagade

June 07, (THEWILL) – When entrepreneur and politician, Bisoye Fagade, announced his intention to boot Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State out of office, about two months ago, many had applauded his vision and promised to support his ambition.

It was the second time that he had claimed to be on a mission to rescue Oyo.

In his first attempt at fulfilling this dream on the platform of the Alliance For Democracy, Fagade failed to progress beyond the primaries. However, a month after he announced his governorship ambition, he quietly changed his mind and instead, decided to run for the Senate, to represent Oyo Central Senatorial District.

Surprisingly, just a few minutes before the primary kicked off, Fagade pulled out of the election, claiming lack of transparency in the process, in favour of an ‘unpopular’ candidate to achieve a predetermined result. Any man that is unstable in his ways is considered unserious and untrustworthy.

Rather than take responsibility for his unpreparedness and lack of political wit, Fagade chose to clutch straws. Perhaps, if he had remained resolute about what he wanted, maybe he would have been taken seriously. He would have gained the attention of those that mattered the next time he decides to run for an elective position.
