No Politician in Ogun since democracy has served like I did, except Obasanjo- Amosun

Former governor of Ogun State and Senator representing Ogun Central, Ibikunle Amosun, on Thursday said that with the exception of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, no politician dead or alive has served the state more than him since 1999.

Amosun disclosed this while addressing his supporters at a welcome rally after the party presidential primary, held at the Ake Palace Ground Abeokuta , Ogun State Capital.

The lawmaker said he had served the state for 15 years however acknowledged elders on whose shoulders he had stood.

According to him “In this Ogun State, since 1999, I am on camera, except for Baba Olusegun Obasanjo, I am not talking of pre-1999, no human being, dead or alive has served Ogun State the way I have served. I have done 8 years as your governor, by next year it will be my 8th year in the Senate. Just between 1999 and now, I have served Ogun State with 15 years of my lifetime.

Let anybody that have done that come out, I am not talking of our referred fathers. I accept that there are so many giants that came before me, we stood on their shoulders and we are still standing on their shoulders, but truth must be told and we must say it. Since 1999, Ibikunle Amosun has paid his dues in Ogun State and I still paying it. Put your mind at rest, we are APC, APC is ours.

Let me tell you this, you sent me to Abuja to go and work for us, I told them when I addressed them why I want to be president of Nigeria. But my wanting to be president of Nigeria cannot supersede the interest of all of us in Nigeria, all of us in the south, all of us in the southwest.

Amosun while appreciating his supporters appealed that they extend the support he has received so far to the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
