THE PLOTTED EXILE OF ADENUGA AS A RESULT OF ENVY
The problem that the billionaire Chairman of GLOBACOM, had with former President Olusegun Obasanjo was masterminded by Alhaji Aliko Dangote. And the cause was mere envy of the ever rising status of the siilent but meticulous multi-billionaire, MIKE ADENUGA.
It all started when Adenuga acquired the old National Oil which he transformed to Conoil.
Chemical Ali as Aliko was called went to town claiming that Adenuga used funds from Bureau of Public Enterprise.
Same thing reared its ugly head when Adenuga acquired the second National Carrier Licence which enabled him to join the world mega business of telecommunication. He smeared the names of Adenuga and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar.He claimed that Atiku who oversaw the then Petroleum Trust Fund helped pay for the licence from the Fund's cover.
This was the final straw that brokes the camels back of camaraderie between Atiku and his former boss Obasanjo.These incidents made the guru Adenuga is fondly called to go on voluntary exile.
Adenuga's sin s according to Dangote's gospel is due to his unapproachability.He claimed that the guru was too arrogant, tacltum and always elusive to the extent that Adenuga could not be asked for favours like using his private jet because his own jet, a rickety 14 year old NS 125 old cargo which he bought from the Federal Government always breakdown constantly without notice and also because Adenuga is richer than him.
The hatred for Adenuga got worse few years ago during one of the editions of Nduka Obiagbena's. This Day Awards.
In that year's edition of the award despite the fact that the GLOBACOM boss was not present physically as against ALIKO who there live, Adenuga was the cynosure of all eyes as his representatives were busy collecting awards after another on his behalf whilst DANGOTE with all his pride and ego was just there looking at the glory of ADENUGA without a single award.Since then the attempt to ruin Adenuga started because he didn't want anybody to surpass him. To further humiliate Adenuga after he had succeeded in setting EFCC after him, 'CHEMICAL ALI' was always dramatisiing how Adenuga was behaving when he was to be arrested by EFCC operatives and during this time one will always see him holding white hhanderchief and waving it at the EFCC operatives which signals peace as Adenuga was pleading.
