Amosun declares bid for second term

Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun

The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, on Friday publicly declared his plans to vie for a second term.

Mr. Amosun made his intention known while featuring as a guest on a live radio programme, Daybreak Show of Rockcity F.M Station, Abeokuta.

Mr. Amosun also clarified that he was not in competition with a former governor of the state, Olusegun Osoba, as rumoure.

He also took the opportunity to ask for Mr. Osoba’s forgiveness for whatever offences he might have committed.

“By all means I will contest second term because our people have shown love and I really cannot thank them enough,” Mr. Amosun declared.

He disclosed that he receives over 2,000 calls and text messages on a daily basis, with a quarter of the calls from people asking the governor to reconcile with Mr. Osoba.

“Every day, (people) send me texts and do this on a daily basis. I take more than 2, 000 calls and text messages as well,” he said. “At least, maybe a quarter of those calls are on “E yanju kini yin oo.” (Please, look into this issue.)

“You cannot go to a battle with a divided house. I agreed with all of them and I want to thank them enough but I have said it that I am not in competition with Chief Osoba, he is our leader,” he said.
