Why is Jimmy Idiagbon, a Kwara State-born businessman and House of Representatives aspirant under attacks lately? This is the question agitating the minds of his fans, since the media, particularly the social media, began to beam its search light on his life and business.
His critics have not spared him their vitriolic attacks because he is said to be exaggerating his relationship with the former Chief of Staff, the late Major General Tunde Idiagbon, whom he calls his father. He is also said to be reaping bountifully from some dignitaries, especially in government quarters, since he has allegedly perfected the art of name-dropping.
However, it appears the fans and loyalists of the handsome politicians are ready to stand in his defence against what they described as character assassination.
According to them, it is not only a calculated attempt by his traducers to rubbish his integrity and popularity, but also cause disaffection among the Idiagbon Clan in Ilorin.
His fans described him as a quite man, who has been minding his business since he arrived from Malta in 1999. They also attribute his success to hard work and grace of God.
