Oyo state’s former commissioner for finance, Zaccheus Adelabu is truly a gifted man, in books and in wisdom. What he lacks is the priceless goodluck that had been working against him for obvious reasons. Yes, Zaccheus has the wealth, he also has the connection within and outside Oyo state to get him whatever he wants anytime, but he is not a lucky man as he loses on so many chances and luck.
Many in the state know that the young man who celebrated his 40th birthday some weeks ago nursed an ambition to govern his state, the ambition at the moment is a pipe dream as Zaccheus is found missing on the list of the would-be candidates that want to vie for the position, thanks for his principal and godfather, Ajimobi who talked him out of the ambition and made him see the reason he cannot support his ambition.
The Governor had some other plans, he promised Zaccheus something bigger that would prepared him for an important assignment in the future. Governor Ajimobi was said to have used his influence in the party and also his closeness with President Buhari to submit Zaccheus name for a Federal appointment and pronto, the news came that his name has been penciled down and all that is left was for the President to sign and make the announcement.
Zaccheus joy knows no bound, he went to town bragging and telling all who cares to listen about a bigger assignment that would upgrade him and make him the man of the moment, but sadly luck played a fast one on him, when his name came up for security clearance, Zaccheus Adedeji Adelabu is a name on the top list of investigations by the DSS and EFCC, the brilliant man has a brilliant reputation, he is a man under probe for many financial misappropriation in Oyo state, sources claimed the petition against him was big enough to sink a ship, thus explained why he was removed and another APC topshot, Bisi Adegbuyi was announced as the Post Master General.
