No Politician Dead Or Alive Has Served Ogun More Than Me-Amosun




Erstwhile Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has stated that no politician dead or alive has served Ogun State more than him since 1999.

However, Amosun exempted former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

According to Daily Trust, “it is believed to be a direct swipe at former Governors Olusegun Osoba (1999-2003), Gbenga Daniel (2003 – 2011) and Dapo Abiodun who is in the saddle.”

Amosun who was governor of the state between 2011 and 2019, had clashed with the trio at different times following their political differences and is also at loggerheads with Abiodun over the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC’s) structure in the state.

Addressing APC stalwarts at the Ake palace ground in Abeokuta on Thursday, June 16, Amosun boasted that he had paid his dues in the service of the state as two term governor, who equally would be completing his eighth year at the Senate by next year.


He said;


“In this Ogun State, since 1999, I am on camera, except for Baba Olusegun Obasanjo, I am nottalking of pre-1999, no human being, dead or alive has served Ogun State the way I have served. I have done 8 years as your governor, by next year it will be my 8th year in the Senate. Just between 1999 and now, I have served Ogun State with 15 years of my lifetime.

“Let anybody that has done that come out, I am not talking of our referred fathers. I accept that there are so many giants that came before me.

“We stood on their shoulders and we are still standing on their shoulders, but the truth must be told and we must say it. Since 1999, Ibikunle Amosun has paid his dues in Ogun State and I still paying it. Put your mind at rest, we are APC, APC is ours.”
