Former Ogun State governor, Chief Olusegun Osoba, has come under the attack of the Commissioner for Youth and Sports in the incumbent administration of Dapo Abiodun, Dr Kehinde Oluwadare.
Oluwadare, according to Punchng.com, said of Osoba when some party leaders in the state paid him a visit, “In 1999, Bola Ahmed Tinubu came on board with the likes of Osinbajo, Kayode Fayemi, Fashola and Rauf Aregbesola, Mamora, Muiz Banire, Tokunbo and Koro, you know all these people. And till today, all these people are doing well in their respective fields.
“And we should all know that a leader without a successor is a failure… I will say the only person I can see with Osoba is Segun Adesegun. Aside from Segun Adesegun, no other person.”
However, his principal has distanced himself from the comment saying it didn’t represent his own personal view of the ruling All Progressives Congress chieftain in a statement the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin released.
It reads in part: “The comments were never a true reflection of the disposition of both the governor and indeed the government and the high esteem that Chief Olusegun Osoba is held.
“There is no doubt that Chief Olusegun Osoba’s repute is timeless and transcends Ogun State and indeed many spheres he has stamped his authority for him to be the subject of such a careless remark.”
