Inside Lamidi Adedibu’s deserted Ibadan ‘palace’, crumbling political dynasty | Oladeinde Olawoyin | Premium Times NG
..As against the norm when the ‘palace’ was operated like a car mart with hundreds of vehicles occupying the open space, there were just six vehicles in the entire compound when PREMIUM TIMES visited – three cars were parked at the front of the main buildings; a bus was stationed at road leading to the gate; while two other cars were placed on the tarred road at the entrance. The main building where Mr. Adedibu lived clings to the side of another building where political meetings were held. At the entrance of the building, painted in white and green, there are portraits of some deceased Nigerian politicians and foremost nationalists: Adegoke Adelabu, Ladoke Akintola, Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe and Tafawa Balewa.

It is February 2018, about a year away from a major national election and few months to the state’s local government elections. Yet here in Mr. Adedibu’s Molete Palace, there was pin-drop silence and the entire place reeked of emptiness and inactivity. For the old-time visitor, it was quite difficult to imagine this was the much-dreaded Lamidi Adedibu’s famed ‘Molete Palace’, otherwise considered the political ‘mecca’ of politicians and their hangers-on in Oyo State, the southwest region and beyond.

..For Tawakalitu Ajibola, a trader at Oja’ba market in Ibadan, Mr. Adedibu was a colossus who she remembered for his support for the poor and the needy in the society. Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, she explained that the late politician’s position remains unfilled. “He gave out rice and other things during festivals. Many people ate in his house on Fridays, he was a great philanthropist and benefactor to many. We miss him.” But a butcher at Bode market, Tiamiyu Ajao, said the late politician’s death signalled the end of politically-motivated violence in the state. “We have been enjoying peace in Ibadan since he left; we must recognise that too as a part of his ‘legacy’,” he said in Yoruba.

..“Late Chief Adedibu understood the language of local politics and he deployed it to great advantage. The gate of his palatial premises was left open for poverty-stricken people and political opportunists who swarmed his house for food and financial favour; not to talk of those who hanged their political destinies on the late political godfather. ”Mr. Asindemade, who lamented the manner politicians deserted the Molete home of the Ibadan politician, attributed the development to Mr. Adedibu’s refusal to embrace refined politics. [LMAO, as in...something beyond the local swagger and thuggery of "Baba"/"Chief"??] He said, “Chief Adedibu only empowered people with stomach infrastructure and once he was not there again to sustain the empowerment, people moved on to where their stomach would have sustenance.

[Pics included in the piece. Someone on Twitter said (rightly) that this is the future of BAT's Bourdillon in Ikoyi. Vanity of man.]
