Aremo Osoba Sighted At Buhari’s Inauguration, Says I’m Still In SDP

imageA former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba, attended the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, but said his presence does not mean he has returned to the All Progressives Congress.
He told our correspondent that he attended the inauguration in his capacity as the President’s personal friend and the fact that Buhari made him the Managing Director of Daily Times 31 years ago.
The ex-governor did not however rule out returning to the APC, adding that he wrote the constitution of the party.
Osoba said, “I owe President Muhammadu Buhari a duty to be here because he appointed me the Managing Director of Daily Times 31 years ago. I have been with him longer than anybody. He gave me the glory of redeeming my image as a professional journalist when he brought me back to Daily Times as Managing Director.
“I therefore owe him a duty to rejoice with him today for the great thing that God has done in his life after contesting the Presidency three times. So I owe him that duty. I am here because he is my boss and my personal friend.
“We founded APC, I wrote the constitution. Today is not for politics, we are here for statesmanship. History is being made today: transition from a sitting President to a respected President.”
Apart from Osoba, former deputy governor of Ogun State, Segun Adesegun; the three APC senators from the state and members of House of Representatives had about seven months ago defected to the SDP over irreconcilable differences with governor Ibikunle Amosun.
The Senators are Adegbenga Kaka, Gbenga Obadara and Akin Odunsi, who represent Ogun East, Ogun Central and Ogun West respectively.
The members of the House of Representatives are Kunle Adeyemi, Babatunde Olabode, Olumide Osoba, Abiodun Abudu, and Bukunola Buraimo.
Adesegun had sent a stinker to Amosun, accusing him of starving his office of funds, and allocating old vehicles to him.
