The Governor of Ogun State has explained that the State is a no go area for stranger to become the Governor.
Senator Ibikunle Amosun make this known during the visit of Ogun West Elders council at governor office Oke Mosan, Abeokuta. On Yewa/Awori for governor.
Governor Amosun explained that he is fully in support of Ogun west senatorial district to become the governor of the state come 2019. He said we should not see peoples from other East senatorial district.
Amosun said, “I was not around when he was not around when Ashiru was declared in Ijebu Ode last week ,i was in Anambra then, it was an Oba that called to inform me about that one of my cabinet had been elected as the Ogun East APC Candidate.
Amosun who dashed the hope of the elders made it known that, ” I’m a focus person I don’t look around when am helding somewhere,we the son of the soil knows ourselves, Ogun is a no go Area for some strangers who go about looking for their father’s house”.
Amosun also assures the elders not to exercise any fear because he once out throne his leader(Osoba) in politics at Ogun Central district so he can still support and promote any candidate of his choice.
“I know GNI, Mamora and some other but i don’t know some people who goes about claiming to hail from our land.
“If I say am handing over to a candidate from Ogun West it does not mean am handing over to Atohunriwa.
“Like I said before I am saying it again am handing over to Ogun West come 2019.
“This does not mean other candidates from other senatorial district can not contest they can, we know how we did it that we won the election in Ogun Central.
“Therefore put your mind at rest no room for strangers from any where I repeat.”
Prof. Biyi Afonja beseeched the governor to take a look at Ogun West politicians and pick one of them to take over the governor seat from him and they will support him.
Prof. Afonja, “I spent over 90 percent of my life in Yewa affairs so there fore let the governor’s seat go to Ogun West.
“I would have been a governor if God had ordained me to be a Governor in 1979 but God knows why I declined then and why it stands till this date”.
Afonja also plead with the governor to make the seat go to Ogun West in his life time.
He how ever made it known that he was with the council who picked Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola Yayi last week at Yewa.
