The strong man of Ibadan politics and godfather of Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala, the governor of Oyo Stae is gathered that Adedibu died this afternoon in Ibadan.The Octogenerian was unarguably one of the most controversial politicians in Nigerian history.

According to those who spoke with from Ibadan, market women, artisans and even bankers hurried home after it was apparent in Ibadan that tghe man had passed on to the great beyond.It should be recalled that Adedibu, popularly regarded as the grand patron of 'Amala' politics was recently discharged from a high brow hospital.He was addressed the press some days back over the controversial five million Naira hospital bill said to have been paid from the coffers of Oyo State Government.

He was the defactor 'Governor General' of Oyo State.All those who were intrested in any electoral post had to seek his favour before they could be elected.

Good or bad, Adedibu was regarded as a very influential politician.Former President Olusegun Obasanjo once regarded him as the father of PDP (Peoples Democratic Party).When he had a misunderstanding with ex-Governor Rasheed Ladoja, the former governor of Oyo State, he told him he would be removed and replaced by his deputy (Alao Akala) and it came to pass.
Students of University of Ibadan durning the military junta of General Sani Abacha had several confrontations with Adedibu for supporting the 'Abacha in office forever' campaign.
Adedibu is a cat with nine lives, so if he wakes up tommorow don't be too suprised!


  1. hate to laugh at the dead but to "awon ti o tori aiye gbagbe orun", please use this as an exmaple o. even the strong men of this world will pass. this man has terrorized oyo state for years and unless there isnt a supreme one thats when this dude will rest in peace. otherwise, rest in pieces lamidi adedibu and choke on amala politics on your way to hell. all the innocent lives you wasted over the years will not gree make you rest.

  2. Glory be to God!

  3. Yeah, am number one today!
    You're very right... Adedibu is not dead until after his burial at noon today!
    Some people are rejoicing in Ibadan now...

  4. "If he wakes up tomorrow, don't be too surprised"

    I see. So you are the one that wants to go and wake him abi. Niyi, sometimes, kindly just reserve your comments.

  5. OHH how the "mighty" has fallen. Woo bi "alagbara" ti subu.
    What goes up must come down.

  6. anon at 6:18. Niyi is very right please. Let's wait until at least this weekend before rejoicing. This man has nine lives oh and he is such a troublemaker that the people in hell might petition God to send him back to earth. I'm sure he will raise hell in hell lol ....

  7. Glory be to God. My advise to Peaple in Oyo State to put acid on his remain body before burial. Because the devil man has gone for ever. Adedibu is a devil man will not have any rest, All the innocent lives he wasted over the years will not give him rest. And again all his children and his family will suffer for it God will punish all of them.

  8. i just read the story when searching for updates on one of my former bosses, Elder Oyelese. This should be a lesson for the likes of Elder himself that living is not eternal. What goes up MUST come down.

  9. President Olusegun Obasanjo, confess your sins now that you still have the opportunity, for you may be next. Your attrocities will ever live after you are gone. Your sins are just too much.
