Pius Adesanmi and I user to be quite friendly despite his scathing criticism of GEJ…We had a few private chats when I toyed with the idea of running for Governor in 2015. And he really encouraged me after a few piercing sessions of questioning.
We were friendly and cordial despite disagreeing on a wide range of issues. He was Pro Good Governance and yet pro Buhari and anti GEJ. I was pro GEJ and Good Governance.
We remained cordial until he falsely accused me in an article on Sahara and Premium Times in 2015. I had attended a GEJ event in PH one weekend a few weeks before the 2015 elections. In his article he had mentioned that he was informed money was shared and implied he was disappointed that I was involved.
I was totally unaware of this and was thoroughly offended. I was livid. In fact I left PH quite early before anyone else was up. So I did not see any such activity. I had a function in Lagos that morning so was on the first flight. In fact by the time my hosts woke up I was on a flight out of there.
I sent him a private message…He never responded or apologised. I blocked him on FB. I also wrote about it and cursed him out.
He owes me an apology. He must not die without apologising….P.A. you cannot die until you say sorry 😪😪😪😪😪😪😪😪
This is truly sad.
May his loved ones be comforted. Life is fleeting people. Live it well. Live for Love.
I saw a few of his recent anti Buharist posts that people shared via screen shots. I smiled. Wish I could tell him “I told you so”.
Great writer. Passionate about Nigeria.
Fare thee well
