He apparently hasn’t recovered from the defeat. The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State, Teslim Folarin, has allegedly ordered the removal of the transformer he donated to Sabo community after losing at the polls last Saturday.
The Seriki Hausawa of Ibadanland, Alhaji Ahmad Dahiru Zungeru revealed this development at his palace in Ibadan few days ago.
“Folarin donated a transformer to Sabo community and it was placed around our central mosque. One of his aides, Basiru Maiborno, brought it to us. But yesterday morning, I received a call that Maiborno has taken back the transformer. Later in the day the transformer was returned back but we refused it and asked his aide to return it.” He said.
Although Maiborno a former councillor in Ibadan North denied it saying it was removed with a view to keeping it in a safer place. “It was not because Folarin lost in Sabo that we removed the transformer.
He continued, “I got the information that some hoodlums wanted to steal the transformer, which was why I removed it. Folarin does not know anything about it. Senator Folarin is a man of his words,” Maiborno concluded.
