Immediate past Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has challenged critics of his alleged lopsided development of the state in favour of Abeokuta, his home town to point to projects undertaken by his two predecessors; Otunba Gbenga Daniel and Aremo Olusegun Osoba, saying If I come again, I will be Governor of Abeokuta.
Amosun had fired back at his critics saying “I am not the first governor; particularly, let us talk about the last two. Let us leave all the military administrators and take Chief Osoba and Daniel. Put them together and let them point to their projects. Once they say this is our project, I will show them 10. Even in Ijebu and Yewa, I will show them.”
“I have told people that I should not be punished for the ‘sin’ that is committed to make Abeokuta the capital of Ogun State. Abeokuta is for all of us. They said I am governor of Abeokuta. I am happy to be governor of Abeokuta. And I want to come again and again, I would want to be classified like that (Governor of Abeokuta).”
“Ask them, people have come before me. People that say they have been governors of this state. If they say they were governors of everywhere, let them come and point to what they have done that is better than what we have done.”
“I am ready to speak and challenge my predecessors now that I have left office. Posterity will judge everybody, I am at peace with myself and my creator. Those who have been describing me as the worst governor of the state are only envious of my achievements.”
