Politics is said to be a dirty game, a game of dog eats dog where there is no friend or foes, nothing but a permanent interest. But how do you explain that of blood brothers who because of politics, one betrayed the other?
Words of America President Donald Trump best described their case:“The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies.”
There is a silent war raging among prominent Ibadan brothers, Ayodeji Karim, the Managing Director of Costain West Africa and his billionaire brother, Kola who owns Shoreline Natural Resources.
Sources revealed the two brothers don’t see eye-to-eye, the reason for this is said to be the declaration by Ayodeji to run for the position of the Oyo state governor in 2019.
Kola, who is obviously the most unassuming among the Karim brothers was said to have confided in his brother, Ayodeji sharing a grand plan and dream to contest the number one seat in their state, Oyo.
Ayodeji was said to have advised him to take his time and do some consultations and promised him his support. While Kola was mapping out his strategies to actualize his dream, Ayodeji stormed Ibadan and declared his intentions to run for Governor under the platform of the APC.
Ayodeji was said to have relied on the support of some friends and contacts which he got from his brother to sail and also achieve his ambition. He was said to have contacted many of his brother’s friend to support his ambition, but they referred him back to his brother and seek a proof of reconciliation.
Presently the siblings are at war with the other siding up with Kola and leaving Ayodeji out in the cold.
Sources revealed Ayodeji doesn’t have the money, contacts or the charisma to drive his campaigns as all he was and still is has the touches of his estranged brother in it.
