Son of the late Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige, Muyiwa, has said the ghost of his father will continue to haunt those who killed him.
Muyiwa is currently the Commissioner for Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Development in Osun State.
Speaking with journalists in Lagos on Sunday in company with some members of the state cabinet, he added that his father’s ghost would become an albatross for them.
He said, ”The ghost of my father will continue to haunt his killers. It will be an albatross around the necks of those who killed him. Bola Ige did not die in his sleep. He did not kill himself. He was assassinated. Slowly but surely, the truth will be known. Those who murdered sleep will sleep no more.”
Ige was assassinated in his Bodija home, Ibadan on December 23, 2001.
He also said the school reclassification programme in Osun generating controversy was aimed at streamlining the state’s education agenda to ensure quality and the deployment of the best instructors into schools in the state.
He stated, ”Before now, the rot in the schools was huge. The communiqué that emerge from the education summit we held was spilled along the line of reclassification and consolidation for better and quality education in the state. Never would anybody have thought that putting various Christian denominations schools together, there would ever be an issue with those wearing agreed complementary clothing with their uniform. We know better now.”
