Ogun State governor; Dapo Abiodun has written to an ex-governor of the state, Chief Olusegun Osoba over comments made by the state’s Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Dr Kehinde Oluwadare describing Osoba as a failure.

Oluwadare was reported t have made the remark when  some  party leaders in the state paid him a visit, “In 1999, Bola Ahmed Tinubu  (the All Progressives Congress National Leader) came on board with the likes of (Vice-President  Yemi) Osinbajo, (Ekiti State Governor) Kayode Fayemi, (Babatunde) Fashola and Rauf Aregbesola, (Olorunnimbe) Mamora, Muiz Banire, Tokunbo (Afikuyomi) and, Musiliu Obanikoro)  Koro, you know all these people. And till today, all these people are doing well in their respective fields.”

He added, “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.”

But in a swift reaction by Governor Dapo Abiodun, through his  Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin,  the governor denied knowledge of the commissioner’s action.

The statement read “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.
