• Former Lagos governor plays peacemaker between Africa’s richest billionaire and Ogun governor

Few people will remember that Aliko Dangote and Ibikunle Amosun used to be friends. The Dangote Group chairman and Ogun State governor respectively nurtured enviable friendship until things fell apart between them.

Their love could not hold anymore and their camaraderie yielded to discord. Thus news of their quarrel was celebrated across different media platforms across the country. It was well celebrated by the celebrity journals in particular. Expectedly, the media audience feasted on the news wondering how things degenerated between the duo.

But just as news of their conflict assumed the dimensions of malicious rumour, former Lagos governor and incumbent Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, brought them together and brokered truce between them. Fashola, it was alleged, played a crucial role in making Governor Amosun attend the commissioning of the 26-kilometre Itori-Ibeshe road constructed by Aliko Dangote.

The road which was jointly commissioned by Fashola and Amosun was built with concrete as part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme of the Dangote Cement Company in Ibeshe, Yewa North Local government area of Ogun State. The road also links two local government areas, Ewekoro and Yewa North together.

But despite the pageantry and political correctness of bringing the duo together, the alleged truce between Dangote and Amosun might be a farce after all – this is because both men wore deep frowns on their faces and shared cosmetic smiles all through the event.
