Itse Sagay: Yinka Odumakin brings bad luck to anyone he supports

Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), has described Yinka Odumakin, National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere as a ‘human jackal’ and a morally bankrupt character whose action is motivated by desire for money and brings bad luck to anyone he supports.

According to him, Odumakin supported and became the spokesman of President Muhammadu Buhari, then candidate of the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) in the 2011 presidential election but dumped him for former President Goodluck Jonathan who won the election.

“In 2011, Odumakin came calling at my house with a card from Gen. Buhari seeking my support. Odumakin spent two hours, vigorously putting across the high qualities of Gen. Buhari. Although, I was already inclined to support Buhari, Odumakin’s visit capped the whole matter”.

“But what of Odumakin himself? He was a chief supporter and spokesman for Buhari in 2011, but as the whole world knows Buhari has no free money for anybody. And so, Odumakin packed his bag abandoned Buhari and headed for Jonathan to become Jonathan’s errand boy”.

“As expected, the morally bankrupt Odumakin collected money from the Jonathan campaign to set up a fake news Radio Station in Ibadan in 2015”.

“Jonathan lost the election and carpet bagger Odumakin pulled up his tent from Jonathan’s environment and headed for Atiku to pitch his tent there. Odumakin always follows the money”. As someone once described him, Odumakin is unprincipled, a moral invertebrate: a vulture, always seeking new fields of carrion – a jackal”.

“He is a man who moves from camp to camp in order to feed. Unfortunately, Odumakin brings bad luck to every Principal he purports to serve. When he served Buhari, Buhari lost the presidential election in 2011. He moved on to Jonathan, and Jonathan lost the presidential election in 2015. Now that he has moved on to Atiku, Atiku’s fate can be foretold”.

Sagay in the statement also denied the claim allegedly made by Odumakin that he supported calls for the extradition in 2015 of the late Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, former governor of Bayelsa to the United Kingdom”.

“For me, the most painful part of his savage attack on me is his assertion that I betrayed Deprieye Alemieyeseigha, former Governor of Bayelsa State. Odumakin had made this assertion before in October 2017; I corrected it in the Newspapers. That he has repeated these lies again shows that Odumakin is a chronic and unrepentant liar”.

“It can therefore be seen by all and sundry that Odumakin is indeed a jackal. He is a man with no loyalty to anybody or anything including the truth. His loyalty is only to money. I am sorry for him because, he will never leave a legacy of any value behind, because he has no values. He will forever continue to eat carrion, as his opportunistic and exploitative nature demands” Sagay said.
