Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Bayo Adelabu
The Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Bayo Adelabu on Thursday escaped a ghastly accident which nearly nearly claimed his life.
A report by Punch revealed that Adelabu is said to be interested in contesting the 2019 governorship election in Oyo State. Although he had yet to associate himself with any political party or declare his intention publicly, some are already speculating that he is the preferred candidate of Governor Abiola Ajimobi as his successor because of their closeness and the financial facility that Adelabu has attracted to the state from the CBN.
A source confirming the accident which occurred around 6pm at a spot close to Redeemed Christian Church of God on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
According to a Punch source, Adelabu was travelling in a convoy of a few vehicles when a vehicle suddenly collided with the Sports Utility Vehicle that was conveying Adelabu to Lagos.
He said, “It was such a sudden collision. We did not see it coming and the impact caused the Deputy Governor’s jeep to somersault severally. The car skidded off the main road before the somersaulted. If you see the vehicle after the accident, all the airbags came were triggered. God saved him from the accident. He was taken to Abuja to be treated before he came back home to rest more. He prefers not to make a noise about it.”
