The Ogun state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has disclosed that he had made a covenant with God to handover to a Yewa-Awori indigene.
It should be recalled that the senatorial district has yet to produce a governor since the creation of the state 42 years ago.
Amosun who spoke on Faaji 106.5 FM stressed that his agitation for Yewa-Awori to produce next governor was not a selfish agenda, but a fight to ensure that the Ogun west axis taste the seat of power.
The governor also explained that he did not hand pick Akinlade, saying it was a collective decision from Ogun west elders.
He maintained that he consulted people from the axis before he accepted to pick Akinlade as his preferred candidate.
He said, “It is a covenant between me and my God that somebody from Ogun west will be governor after me.
“The people of the axis have been cheated in the distribution of government power and I believe it is their time to become the governor.
“I have done a lot of consideration and consultation before Akinlade was picked.
“It was not a personal decision, I consulted people from the axis and they were the one that picks Akinlade.
“People of Ogun west should call themselves and support somebody from their axis so that they will not miss this opportunity again”.
