“Let us support a governor in Oke-Mosan who respects Ogun West, who cares about Ogun West and who will not because of politics join to call one of our illustrious son a stranger. Let us support that gubernatorial candidate who will not ask for his own 8 years after 2023 or who is ‘just in the race to negotiate for his political future.
