Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has said former governor Ibikunle Amosun is free to explain his failure whichever way he likes.
Abiodun stated this during an interview with journalists at the grand finale of the 50th anniversary of the Abeokuta Club while reacting to claims that he was rigged into office in 2019.
KEMI FILANI NEWS had reported that Amosun alleged that Abiodun was rigged into office in 2019.
He stated this on Friday in Abeokuta after receiving an award from the Abeokuta Club to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the association.
Abiodun expressed shock a former governor and an incumbent in 2019 would say he was rigged out during the election.
He queried: “How can we that are on the outside take on an incumbent and then be accused of rigging out an incumbent in the same party?
“Anyone can explain their failure whichever way they like; anyone can also begin to pant and threaten that they will do whatever”, Abiodun said, adding that he was not perturbed.
The governor added he would not be distracted by anyone who has a problem with himself or wants to play God in Ogun State.
“I will not be distracted by any person or persons who have a problem with self delusion, I will not be distracted by any person who do not appreciate that Ogun State is not anybody’s father’s inheritance, we are all stakeholders in this commonwealth called Ogun state.
“I am not going to join issues with anyone that wants to play God, I will leave them to God, God can deal with whoever is challenging his authority and wants to play God. All I can say is that what we stand for in Ogun State is an administration that is committed to providing purposeful leadership and purposeful infrastructural development across the length and breadth of the state,” he said.
