Daniel, Obasanjo-Bello clash at Akala’s daughter’s wedding
By Sunday Aborisade
The timely intervention of Oyo State Governor, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, prevented a major clash between his counterpart in Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel and Senator Iyabo-Obasanjo Bello, at Ogbomoso, on Saturday.
Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello
Both Daniel and the daughter of former President Olusegun Obasanjo were among the hundreds of dignitaries who graced the state wedding organised by Alao-Akala for his daughter, Subulade Olamide and her husband, Mr. Olayode Alabi.
The governors of Ondo, Ekiti, Osun and Kwara states were also at the ceremony while that of Rivers State was represented by his deputy.
Trouble started at the First Baptist Church, Okelerin, Ogbomoso venue of the wedding when the dignitaries joined Alao-Akala for a thanksgiving dance after the couple’s solemnization.
The governors were already on the dancing floor when Obasanjo-Bello, who sat behind the governors at the church, stood up and was dancing towards the altar to drop her offering but was stopped by an aide of Daniel.
Daniel’s security man insisted that she had no right to pass through the dignitaries and that her style of dancing would disturb his boss.
Attempts by Obasanjo-Bello to break the blockade were vehemently resisted by the security man who pushed her away from the scene.
The Senator, who was obviously enraged by the treatment meted out to her by the security man, slapped the man on the chest. The man, however, moved back to his position.
When she could no longer contain the embarrassing situation, Obasanjo-Bello furiously returned to her seat to watch further proceedings at the wedding service in anger.
The situation drew the attention of everybody including Alao-Akala, who signaled to the officiating ministers to fast track the event to a close.
At a point, the Osun State Governor, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, had to plead with Obasanjo-Bello to come and sit near him when he saw the anger visibly written on her face.
The gesture notwithstanding, Obasanjo-Bello wore a long face through out the occasion.
But Alao-Akala, while reacting to the development through his Special Adviser on Public Communication, Mr. Dotun Oyelade, described the incident as a little skirmish.
He said, “It was an importation of local politics that would not distract him from the sublime and profound joy that brought the people together at the blessed occasion”.
There was also another drama at the gate of the church when security details of the host governor and one of the governors almost clashed over the right of passage of their principals, after the church service.
Akala’s security details had allegedly, violently confronted the Chief Security Officer of the governor of one of the neighbouring states who had insisted on his principal leaving the church before the host governor.
A Chief Security Officer of one of the invited governor’s was manhandled by the security officers of the host governor because the CSO had insisted on clearing the way for his boss.
Senior security personnel on the occasion had to step in to ensure that peace prevailed.
Security details at the reception held at Recreation Club, Ogbomoso, were sighted horsewhipping and assaulting guests not withstanding their status for attempting to enter the air-conditioned tent reserved for the VIPs.
Some important dignitaries who could not stomach the insult, had to, out of frustration, leave the scene in anger.
The Grandmaster of Juju Music, Chief Sunday Adeniyi-Adegeye, however, had the shock of his life when the couple rejected his music as they openly expressed their preference for the hip-hop star, 9ice.

While people are dying of hunger, our governors are busy embarrassing a woman. I think Gbenga Daniel purposely advised his aides to embarrass her because she is a woman.

Please Nairalanders don't start.
This overfed Gvernment officials are simply in an act of PRIDE SHOWMANSHIP.
They spend state funds on children's wedding, birthday, burial ceremony and all sort
of occassion that clearly has no bearing on the poor masses.
Politicians neither hate nor love. Interest not sentiment, directs them.
When everybody is somebody, then nobody is anybody.

showcasing their loots at the wedding.
Akala spend such a huge sum of amount on her daughters wedding,
when the state has not witnessed any positive change since he was rigged in.
I pray the Appellate court sit on Oyo state case and flush this thieves out.

As long as they keep the violence and embarassment to themselves; dont give a toss, if the maases are too lilly livered to turn on them; hopefully the will start turning on each other on behalf of the masses
