Abiodun: Ogun Gov responds to Tinubu over godfatherism

Dapo Abiodun claims he is serving the people of Ogun State as governor, just hours after a senior member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, said he assisted him in becoming the state’s leader.

The Ogun Governor, in a tweet aimed at Tinubu on his handle on Friday, June 3, stated that he is not an emperor and that the governorship seat is not inherited.

“I am not an emperor by any chance and this is not my family inheritance,” the governor said.

“I am holding this position in trust for all the people of this state and I have vowed to be fair, just and equitable and this is the solemn agreement I made between the Almighty God and myself,” Abiodun noted.

Tinubu had during a visit to APC delegates in Abeokuta explained his role in the governor’s victory. This was during the 2019 election.

He claimed that APC stakeholders had rejected the Ogun governor but his intervention changed the game.

Dapo that’s sitting down here, could he have become Governor without me?” he said during the event on Thursday.

“We were at the stadium; they tore all his posters. Even the party flag, they didn’t want to hand over it to him. I was the one who brought it. If he wants to meet God at the right place, he must know that without God and me, he would not have become Governor.”

Meanwhile, Bola Tinubu has asked delegates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State to end the lingering crisis or lose the 2023 general elections to the opposition.

The APC chieftain issued the warning on Thursday, June 2. This was while addressing delegates in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital; four days to the commencement of the ruling party’s national convention where he is one of the frontline presidential aspirants.

Tinubu and his supporters, who were in Pacesetter State to woo APC delegates ahead of the party’s presidential primary election said; he was aware that there are some aggrieved members of the party.

“I want to tell you this; those of you having bickering amongst you must all come together and ensure it all ends. Let the crisis end immediately or you all lose the election,” he said.

“Let it all end. I shall return to Oyo State because there’s no time for extensive discussion today. The crisis between the two factions must be sorted out.”
