Showunmi Affirms Obasanjo’s Unignorable Role In Nigerian Politics, Meets  Labour Party Aspirant

Otunba Segun Showunmi, a notable figure within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and former  spokesperson for the PDP Presidential Candidate, has reiterated the indelible influence of former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, in the nation’s political landscape.

Emphasizing the pivotal role of Obasanjo and Senator Ibikunle Amosun in Egba land politics, Showunmi warned against the folly of disregarding the former President’s significance.

 Speaking  during a meeting with Hon. Tolu Phillips, a Labour Party House of Representatives aspirant for the 2023 elections at his country home, Showunmi underscored the necessity of acknowledging Obasanjo’s legacy, particularly in Egba land.

Phillips, seeking guidance on navigating the political terrain of Abeokuta South under the banner of the PDP, received Showunmi’s insights on the historical contributions of his family to Egba land’s development. 

Having transitioned to the PDP due to legal impediments within the Labour Party during the previous election cycle, Phillips found assurance in Showunmi’s endorsement, citing his eloquence and intellect as assets for effective representation.

Showunmi extended his support to Phillips, expressing confidence in his capabilities and assuring him of proper guidance amidst the peculiarities of Abeokuta South’s political landscape. 

In a leadership counsel, he cautioned Phillips against falling prey to the pitfalls of money politics, emphasizing the importance of integrity and prudent decision-making.

In response, Phillips expressed gratitude for Showunmi’s mentorship and pledged to uphold the values of service and accountability. 

Believing in the strength of their partnership, Phillips expressed optimism for his political journey under Showunmi’s guidance, vowing to maintain close communication and seek counsel as he navigates the challenges of Abeokuta South’s local government politics.
