Governor Dapo Abiodun reacts

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has reacted after presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, bragged about making him governor.

Tinubu had stated this while addressing delegates of the All Progressives Congress in Ogun state on Thursday, June 2.

According to him, Abiodun would not have emerged as APC’s candidate during the gubernatorial primaries in 2019 if not for his intervention.

He said,

“That one (referring to Abiodun) that is sitting down here, could he have become governor without me? We were all in the stadium where they tore all the posters. Even the candidacy of the party, they didn’t want to give it to him.

“It’s been over 25 years that I have been serving them. This one sitting at my back, Dapo, could he have become a governor if not for me.”

In an apparent reaction to Tinubu’s jab, Abiodun took to Twitter today, June 3, to say that he is not an emperor and the Governorship office is not his family’s inheritance.

The tweet read;

I am not an emperor by any chance and this is not my family inheritance. 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.
