The Deputy Governor of Ogun State, Segun Adesegun, has stated that he regrets working with Governor Ibikunle Amosun.

Mr. Adesegun, who dumped Mr. Amosun’s All Progressives Congress, APC, alongside other leaders including over a dozen federal and state lawmakers, stated this on Saturday while campaigning for his new party at Ijebu-East Local Government area of the state.

The deputy governor, who is vying for the same position on the platform of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, said he has passed through hell in Mr. Amosun’s administration. He accused the governor of using “technocrats” and favouring his family members against the other residents of the state.

“Oh, my people, I entered one man chance bus, which I pray nobody would experience, because it was terrible,” he said. “Amosun’s administration neglected schools, many classrooms roofs are leaking, many school buildings are dilapidated; he neglected health, agriculture and embarked on road construction only in the cities, at the detriment of rural dwellers.”

In his comment, the governorship candidate of the SDP, Akin Odunsi, said there must be an end to what he described as misrule by the incumbent.

“Yes, there must be an end to this no mercy administration. They brought the so called technocrats who have no knowledge of our peoples’ needs, nor the terrain they operate,” he said.

“Here in Ogun State, we have competent and able bodied men and women who could work for us. The likes of my deputy, Prince Segun Adesegun who is highly experienced, was side-tracked in the administration because of personal interest,” he added

Mr. Odunsi said if elected, the fear of God and love for the people would be his guiding principles. He said a governor must have fear of God, love people, and must be contented if he must serve the populace without any discrimination.

The governorship candidate, who spoke after attending a program at Ijebu-Igbo Central Mosque, said he has no reasons to acquire personal wealth.

“God has done all things for me, and I am satisfied and contented, so I need your votes because I want to genuinely serve and correct the wrongs, hence my involvement in politics,” he said.

According to him, all uncompleted road projects embarked upon by Mr. Amosun would be completed by his administration if elected, while teachers’ welfare would be paramount to his government.

In his remark, Gbenga Kaka, who represents Ogun East District in the Senate, called on the people of the state to protect their votes.

Mr. Kaka, who is among the defectors from APC to SDP, and is seeking re-election on the platform of his new party, urged voters yet to collect their voters’ cards to do so.

    APC as usual maintained a selective amesia on the evil treatment handed the deputy governor by Amosun. But they were quick in their usual shameless maner to question Aliyu of niger state for showing his APC deputy governor the red card. It is dangerous to health to co habit with an AsPC traitor

      Which evil treatment are you talking about? It’s simply a choice between eating the state’s resources or using it to the betterment of the people, which the governor believes in … your brain is as black as your names suggests!
