Former Osun State Governor and All Progressives Congress Chieftain, Olusegun Osoba, has confirmed Ogun State APC governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun, as the next Governor of Ogun State.
Osoba made the prounouncment on Sunday during the presentation of Dapo Abiodun to the party leaders in Ifo and Isheri area of the state.
Osoba, while addressing the forum, urged members to work hard for the victory of Dapo Abiodun in the forthcoming governorship election.
“Today, we are here to present the next governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, from Iperu-Remo
“Abiodun is a young man with sounding values, respect and leadership qualities devoid of favouritism and nepotism.”.
I urge you all to support and vote him as your governor. He has a task to fulfill to the people of Ogun State,” Osoba stated.
Recall that Abiodun, last year, received the backing of President Muhammadu Buhari as the preferred Ogun State APC governorship candidate before being anointed recently by the Awujale of Ijebu land, Oba Sikiru Adetona, as the man to succeed Governor Ibikunle Amosun.
Dapo Abiodun, the billionare businessman behind Heyden Petroleum, will likely face stiff competition in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Ogun State. This comes on the heels of Amosun showing his support to Abiodun Akinlade as his successor
