The governor thanked the Almighty God for granting Chief Osoba good health to contribute to nation-building and further prayed God to grant the former governor a long life and usual vibrancy.
Abiodun noted that though Chief Osoba was absent at the independence celebration, his felicitations and encouragement reinforced the vision that Nigeria as a country will attain greatness.
The governor quoted the APC leader as saying that “Nigerians should rally around the leaders both at the federal and state levels, declaring that the country will overcome its present challenges.”
“Our Baba, Chief Olusegun Osoba, underwent knee replacement surgery in the UK and we thank God that it went well, as he is now fine and in perfect condition. He spoke to me that he would have loved to be present at the independence celebration, but for the surgery.’’
