Senator Olufemi Lanlehin has mocked Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State for failing to deliver for his political party on election assignments to both Kogi and Ondo states.
He said Makinde overrated his political prowess, adding that Ondo governorship election reflected the fact that he was a lightweight politician who should be ready to learn.
Lanlehin represented the Oyo South Senatorial district in the 7th Senate.
He made this known on Saturday in a congratulatory message to the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on his re-election victory.
He said Governor Makinde’s larger than life disposition and deployment of enormous political arsenal in the just concluded Ondo poll is clearly uncalled for.
He said, “This amounts to overstretching one’s luck despite his limited political experience, public service pedigree and personal integrity.
“I, particularly, urge him to take to heart the whipping lessons he received from his current Ondo misadventure and the last Kogi disaster, when he, on both occasions, returned to Ibadan with his tail between his legs after failing in assignments that were much beyond his capacity and experience.”
